Can I use a paint sprayer for fogging?
No. The atomization produced by most airless paint sprayers is too strong, making most disinfectants, sanitizers and deodorizers less effective and possibly harming people nearby. The chemicals also corrode commercial paint spray gun parts. (Units made for factory use usually hold up to acidic chemicals.)
Why is my paint sprayer spitting out paint?
Spray guns spit when air is being introduced into the fluid outside of at the air cap. A loose fluid nozzle does not properly seat in the tip of the spray gun and causes air to enter the fluid supply resulting in spitting.

While other spray methods vary, laboratory tests have repeatedly shown that airless is by far the most efficient. Without air blowing the finish hither and yon, a very high percentage of coating ends up on the wood. In terms of volume, airless guns move finish much more quickly than any other type of spray gun.
Is it OK to cut in one day and paint the next?
But you’ll get better results if you cut in just one wall, then immediately roll out the wall before cutting in the next one. That’s because if you roll out the wall right away, while the cut-in paint is still wet, the cut-in paint and the wall paint will blend much better, reducing the chance of lap marks.
Is it better to spray or roll paint?
That means spray painting is the fastest way to paint large areas where you don’t need so much accuracy, like an exterior wall; roller painting is good for interior walls where you need to avoid getting paint on other surfaces; and brushes help you do the detail work.
Is it better to spray or roll interior doors?
Whether you spray, brush or roll, you’ll get the best results if you prepare the door properly, and, because paint levels better on a horizontal surface, if you take the door down and lay it flat. Even if you have to paint the door in place, you can still get good results.
