    Benefits of renting a paint sprayer

    Anyone, from a do-it-yourself homeowner to a painting contractor, who needs to paint something, should consider renting a paint sprayer. Look at why renting a paint sprayer makes sense.

    • Professional results. A rented paint sprayer allows even a novice painter to apply paint evenly without unsightly streaks or brush lines.
    • Saves money. It costs less to rent a quality paint sprayer for the usual one or two projects you do that require it than to buy one and store it most of the time.
    • Fast. A rented paint sprayer allows you to paint large areas, such as the exterior of a house, in a fraction of the time it would take using a paintbrush and roller.
    • Effective. A rented paint sprayer lets you paint textured or multi-creviced surfaces without unattractive areas of paint buildup.
    • Versatile. You can rent a paint sprayer to apply paints, stains or finishes on home exteriors, cabinets, walls, fences, furniture and more.

    Best practices

    To achieve quality results with your rented paint sprayer, please review the tips below and read all manufacturer warnings and instructions. Your local, ARA-affiliated rental store professional can provide you with complete instructions and a demonstration.

    • Read all manufacturer warnings and instructions prior to using the rented paint sprayer.
    • To prevent injuries, do not point the rented paint sprayer at yourself or anyone else when using or cleaning it.
    • Do not put your fingers near the rented paint sprayer’s tip while using the equipment. Never attempt to unclog the sprayer while spraying paint.
    • Engage the rented paint sprayer’s safety lock when not in use.
    • Unplug the rented paint sprayer and pull its trigger to release any built-up pressure before cleaning it.
    • Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
    • Thoroughly clean the surface you plan to paint. Dirt, peeling paint, mold and other surface deposits can hinder paint adhesion. Using a rented pressure washer works well to clean exterior surfaces before painting. After washing, rinse away any cleaning agents and let the surface dry completely.
    • Scrape away any peeling paint on the surface you will paint. Then, sand and prime these areas for better paint adhesion.
    • Use masking tape or plastic to protect areas you do not want to paint.
    • Strain paint before using it in a rented paint sprayer to remove impurities that can clog the sprayer’s tip.
    • Perform a painting trial on a scrap piece of wood before spraying actual surface you want to paint.
    • Apply several thin coats of paint instead of one thick coat, letting paint dry between coats.
    • Consistently hold the rented paint sprayer about 12 inches away and perpendicular to the surface you will paint.
    • Start at the top of the surface and spray a section no wider than three feet before moving down to the next section.
    • Begin spraying motion before pulling trigger on paint sprayer and release trigger before stopping motion.
    • For more even paint coverage, spray straight from side to side, avoiding spraying in an arch.
    • After beginning to paint, do not stop painting for periods of 20 minutes or more to prevent paint from thickening.
    • Clean your rented paint sprayer before returning it to avoid cleaning fees.
