"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "

- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

We get it! Accidents happen all the time and some of them can result in an hole on your wall! Whether it happened because your kid was playing football inside, or the wall started giving in after some years, a hole on the wall is not only unsightly, but a huge pain as well!

So, in order to help you relieve the headache it gives you every time you see it, ProRestore DKI in Grimes has some guidelines you can follow to get rid of it once and for all!

Steps to Repair Your Wall

1. Get Your Tools
Here’s what you’ll need: a repair patch in the appropriate size for the damaged area, some drywall compound, a trowel, sandpaper, a paintbrush, and paint in your walls’ current color!

2. Clean Up and Prepare
First off, make sure you and your home is ready for the repair. This means getting your clothing protected, and the flooring or furniture covered up so the residue doesn’t dirty them up.

Then, prepare the area so it’s ready to be worked on! Make the hole as smooth as possible by removing any pieces that may be sticking out.

3. Stick it On
Now, let’s start working! Take the repair patch and place it directly over the hole. You need to be certain that the hole is covered in its entirety by the patch.

4. Fill It In
It’s time to take the trowel, get some drywall compound in there and smear it all across the repair patch until it is completely covered. Try to get the drywall as flat as possible by smoothing it over with the trowel!

5. Let it Dry
Now comes the fun part! Waiting until the compound is dry so you can continue working. Give it time so there aren’t any mishaps later on!

6. Make it Smoother
Again, you want the surface to be as similar as possible as that of the rest of the wall. You’ll need to take the sandpaper and rub it against the affected area until it’s smooth as can be!

7. Paint it Over
Finally, so you’re not left with a patch of drywall compound on your wall, you’ll have to paint over it in the same color as the rest of your wall. 

Nobody likes to have a hole in their wall! It makes your whole house look and feel dirty and uncared for! Luckily, by following these steps, you can take care of those small atrocities in a quick and easy manner.If the damage is a lot more severe than you originally thought, it may be time to call a professional team to do the job!
