Do you need to sand before painting?

Hi,

Do you need to sand a painted ceiling and a painted wooden coving/skirting before re-painting?

hiya , whenever i paint ceilings i always clean them first with something like sugar soap , with regards to woodwork you should sand the woodwork down just enough to take the shine off then under coat and gloss.

hope this helps

No , Who has time to wash and sand everything , just sand it down where it is rough
