Courtney & Wise are house painters, but we sometimes have to deal with wildlife, and you might have to do the same if you try a little DIY or do some of your own preparation. How can you avoid problems with animals when you're painting?
- Look before you paint! We didn't expect to find this bloke in our way.
- Make some noise. This will usually convince the creatures to move on.
- Don't try to pet or pick up wild animals. Startled animals can bite or scratch out of fear, even though they'd rather run away.
- Clean thoroughly. For your health, and for the quality of your paint job, clean any areas where animals have been living.
