Need advice on an interior paint job… Is it the responsibility of the home owner or the professional painter to wash interior walls prior to repainting? My paint is already peeling off one of my walls and it has only been 9 days since the painting was done… I’m not a professional myself, so I don’t know if this situation is typical or not. 😩 thank you in advance for your advice/help!

Totally normal. The fact that it’s peeling after only nine days is actually good. It usually takes a few weeks to figure out that the person that did the painting was a moron.

Think of all the time and money you saved. And now you know what to look for when you have to pay someone to do it again.

They did my whole house already 😭 so I’m assuming this won’t be the last of the peeling. I’m devastated.

Normal prep depends on the surface condition, and usually the painter determines and adjusts accordingly. That can mean dust mop, or light scuffing/sanding then dusting, and even priming, etc. But some painters have experience to know and expect what will adhere with minimal prep. I would not expect the worst, but have them back to see what they can do. At least they'll be alerted that there could be a problem. Sometimes that can happen when a repair is not completely dried out.

Btw, you might want to post this at diychatroom instead. This site is meant for contractors only.
