Floating, applying mud or drywall compound is an integral part of prepping walls, and ceilings, for any finished service. The importance of doing it right, Complete HomePros feels, is often overlooked and underestimated. Tools and quality of actual mud, is of course very important. Technique though, is truly the X-factor. Not only when mixing your “mud”, or drywall compound, but applying it is crucial. When mixing, one would always want to keep all foreign objects, dust, or even dried mud, from getting in the mix. This will avoid “boogers” in the mix that cause streaks or lines when applying. Applying is the hardest. If you don’t have experience Floating, we suggest you allow a professional to do it. Especially when working on a project of importance. If applied wrong,(not floating properly) it will result in too much mud, or not enough. Both create more work via a lot more sanding, and/or more applying. So remember, when planning your next projects, to always consider the details.
