Storing paint and tools between projects
Purchasing the necessary supplies for your painting project is an investment, so you want to protect these items by properly cleaning and storing them after each use. Click here for tips from the pros on how to properly clean and store your supplies.
Painting supplies can be bulky and hard to find a place where they seem to fit in your home or office, so storing them offsite is a great option.
Keeping your painting supplies and leftover paint in a climate-controlled storage unit allows you to keep the paint for touch-ups and painting tools in a safe place for later use. Not only does it keep clutter out of your home or office, but it also saves you money from needing to re-purchase paint or supplies at a later date when you decide to patch and re-paint holes and chips in the walls.
In addition to storing your supplies, storing any other liquid supplies like paint, primer or thinners should be kept in sealed plastic containers as an added measure of leak protection.
