When a home is purchased, we all hope it will be left clean and in good repair. Removing beautiful collages, fixtures, and floating shelves can leave a wall looking like a piece of Swiss cheese.

To help prepare a home or office for its next occupant, many owners and tenants will perform some light repairs themselves before the moving company is called.

Items required: mud knife, dry wall filler, sander, drywall primer, and wall paint

  6. Sand area
  7. Apply drywall primer
