Mold removal and painting in North Attleboro, MA.

mold growing on a ceiling in a bathroom in North Attleboro, MA.
This is what happens when you don't use the ceiling exhaust fan in
your bathroom. You get mold. And it just keeps getting worse.
Then when it has to be painted you have to pay more money
and time to get the job done, even if you do it yourself.

Jcb Painting works on a lot of Bathrooms and very often
when we come to look at the paint job, mold is an issue because
the exhaust ceiling fan is hardly used or not at all. Before using the shower the ceiling fan should be turned on and kept on for at least 15 minutes after to exhaust the moisture from the air. So the lesson here is, use your bathroom fan. It's there for a purpose.

After wallpaper border removal

This is the room after the wallpaper border was removed in North Attleborough, MA.
It took a lot longer to finish than expected but Jcb Painting prevailed. The walls below the border
were also in rough shape, but after a lot of patching and sanding they came out
beautiful. The hardwood floor will be refinished also.

Wall paper border removal.

Wall paper removal in North Attleboro, MA.
Not all wall paper is the same when it comes to removal. Usually the top layer is the most difficult and the backing is the easiest to remove after wetting it down.

But on this job it was the opposite. The backing was extremely difficult to remove. The original installer must have used a lot more paste than was necessary to apply this wall paper border.

After removal of wall paper, Jcb Painting, machine sanded to remove all left over bits of paper and glue, patched and sanded again and then primed and painted. It's tough to price this kind of job. You never know what to expect.
No two wall paper borders are the same when it comes time to remove for painting. It's a lot of physical work plus a lot of clean up. One of the hardest things to do when painting a room.
