    "Painters and Decorators like myself and my company have liability insurance in the event something damaging happens. Other than that painters protect the property by using plastic sheetings and drop/dust cloths to prevent paint from getting on furniture."

    "Anything that remains in the rooms to be painted which can’t be moved to get sheeted over as well as floors and other surfaces needing protection, this is the first measure to be taken before starting to paint or prep, hope this helps."
