Helping to protect nature using Environmentally eco-friendly products. I try to use Eco-conscious, environmentally friendly paint products in house paint wherever possible, for interior or exterior painting, purchasing paint products from manufacturers like Farrow & Ball ®, Earthborn ®Little Greene Paint Co ®, & Osmo ®, to name a few. The benefits of the Eco-Friendly painting are numerous. Keep reading to learn more. (Dulux Trade ® Ecosure Range)


Wallpaper can quickly become outdated or damaged. If your wallpaper is beginning to look a bit drab or just doesn’t fit your style anymore, why not turn to me for your wallpaper removal or installation, I can safely remove your old, outdated wallpaper, and then prepare walls, prime, crossline and wallpaper afterwards! While it may seem like a simple weekend DIY job, the process can quickly become a costly project. As a painter & decorator, I also know that wallpaper can be just as impactful, if not more. For instance, aesthetics, durability, long life, affordability, adding character/style & diversity of choices.


With regard to commercial painting and decorating, business owners need to choose the right painters and decorators for their interior or exterior painting projects. Not every painting entity large or small is equally qualified. It is essential to select a decorating business, in which you trust and have confidence, with the security in knowing that the result will constitute a job well done.


A quality finished interior or exterior house painting & decorating job can completely change the look and feel of your home. Always putting quality first, I understand how important it is to my clients to provide a professional service, prioritizing them from start to finish. Discover the professional painting difference! my goal is to exceed your expectations, work with flexibility around your busy schedules, and meet all your decorating needs with professionalism and excellence.

Can’t praise Mike enough for a thoroughly first class job. Using Farrow and Ball paint and wallpaper he decorated our new holiday flat in Bournemouth to a very high standard. Mike is also completely trustworthy and I felt very comfortable giving him a key to the flat.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any painting project as he clearly knows his stuff.

Mikey has completed the decoration of 3 bedrooms, a bathroom and the main stairway, his work is first class, nothing is too much trouble. The finished result is excellent. I can not recommend him more highly. Mikey is friendly, professional and hard-working. The job was completed on time and the price was very reasonable. We have already booked him for further decorating works early next year.

Michael was recommended to me through our builder. We had several rooms redecorated. His work is of the highest standard. He was easy to communicate with and flexible in accommodating other trades. He wasn’t even flustered when my wife changed her mind on colours and was happy to adapt to her wishes.

Michael painted the exterior of our hotel and also assisted with decorating rooms. He was very good with his work, absolutely honest and very thorough. It was all done to a high standard and we are very happy with his work. We will have him back again when we need him and would certainly recommend him.

EXCELLENT WORK Mick has done a wonderful job painting our 5 flats. I would recommend him anytime. Fennlodge Hotel Bournemouth.


5 BEDROOM HOUSE – TOTALLY REDECORATED Over the past 3 years Mikey has totally redecorated/ transformed our 5 bedroom house. Excellent service, work, and finish. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
Use his services and you won’t be disappointed.


IF YOU ARE PICKY I’D RECOMMEND INTSERV. As an experienced decorator myself but unable to do it now due to health issues, I was worried about choosing a decorator for the exterior work on our house as you hear some people’s awful experiences when they have made the wrong choice. I needn’t of worried when I opted for Intserv as Mike obviously knew his trade and the best way to tackle the work efficiency and safety. I sought a few quotes and although Mike’s wasn’t the cheapest his quote was competitive and addressed all my concerns and requirements. His professional approach and attention to detail make my recommendation a pleasure for me. It is always nice to meet people who take pride in what they do and Mike does.




REPEAT CUSTOMER Communicative, attentive, professional, courteous, and above all a first-class painter and decorator.


VAL Courteous polite and efficient would recommend and will happily be using again


FABULOUS BEDROOM MAKEOVER. Michael has just finished painting our bedrooms, stairs, and landing. Nothing was too much trouble, and it was a delight having him in the house. Everything has been done to such a professional standard, and we are over the moon with our upstairs makeover. Have already booked an exterior facelift for next spring!


EXCELLENT WORK We were recommended to Mike by a friend and we were not disappointed. He was courteous and professional from the very first moment the process began. His knowledge and workmanship were second to none. His advice on colour and products were very much appreciated. We would certainly have Mike back in a flash and are pleased to highly recommend him.



Mike came last year and painted the front of my house. It was a big undertaking for me as it involved the erection of scaffolding. But it was done so effectively and efficiently and I am thrilled with the results.
So pleased that I asked Mike to come back and he has done three rooms as well as the landing stairs and hall.
Once again a job well done. He is thorough and professional. Very pleased.

(Late review) Intserv painting has done a wonderful job of decorating our (5) two-bed apartments, we found the work to a high standard, courteous, and all project schedules completed without any problems. Highly recommends.

Peter M

After interviewing several painting businesses, we went with Intserv painting. As we are an elder couple, & after a recommendation from friends found them right for our needs there were some issues along the way, but mike addressed everything and the result was very much to our satisfaction, and will definitely be recommending Intserv painting to our friends.

Mr & Mrs Dericks

Mick was recommended to us when we were looking for someone to decorate our offices and we weren’t disappointed. He did a great job paying attention to detail at all times. He also made every effort to work around us so as no to interrupt day-to-day working.

Jo Jones

Absolutely incredible work. I couldn’t recommend it enough, very efficient and always goes the extra mile.



Mickey (Intserv painting) was recommended to us through our builders, we had several areas decorated. I found his work to be of the highest standard, he was very easy to communicate with and has a very flexible attitude accommodating other trades working around him. I therefore thoroughly recommend him.

D. Wood

Would highly recommend – we recently used Mike to redecorate one of our one-bedroom flats at the end of the tenancy. High-quality decorating, very professional and helpful. Very satisfied and will use it again.

Painting, decorating, and wallpapering can help make a tremendous difference in any room's appearance and ambience. If you learn to paint and hang wallpaper the right way, you will be ready to transform any space in your home. It is relatively easy to learn how to paint and correctly hang wallpaper. It takes patience and attention to detail especially, if you are painting tricky areas and hanging patterned wallpaper, which usually requires matching at the seams.
