5 Popular Painting and Flooring Services, and Why You Should Consider Them

Posted on Saturday, April 29, 2017

One of the attributes we have worked hardest to develop over the years here at Kaloutas is the ability to meet a diverse spectrum of needs for our clients. As we’ve touched on before in project overviews, we want to provide the simplicity of being just one number to call, or one name in your phone, when you have a commercial or industrial maintenance need.

To make this goal a reality, we have built a team of true industry experts, each with their areas of specialty and deep product knowledge.

We’re a resource, not just a service provider.

With that said, there are a few services in particular that have proven themselves to be extremely valuable and popular options, and for good reason. Our hope is that you find this overview helpful as you plan your own facility maintenance strategy.

Our Most In-Demand Painting and Flooring Services Here in the Greater Boston Area

#1 Epoxy Flooring

  • Abrasion/impact resistant
  • Fast-curing so that your facility can quickly become operational again
  • Available with custom aggregates and colors to match your aesthetic needs
  • Increases traction/workplace safety
  • A cove base can be added for easy floor cleaning

For a real-life example, take a look at this trowel-applied epoxy floor system we installed in a Holbrook school.

#2 Concrete Polishing

While we’re discussing popular floor treatments, we can’t miss concrete polishing. It can elevate and protect flooring in a variety of environments, from heavy industrial to commercial spaces.

  • Quick turnaround time since there is no need for a product to cure before operations resume
  • We use state-of-the-art diamond grinders, then treat the surface with a silicate based concrete densifier to lock in an enduring shine
  • Provides a high-gloss, dust-free finish

#4 ESD Flooring

ESD (electrostatic discharge) flooring is a perfect example of how advanced floor systems can keep you (and your assets) safe in the workplace.

Static discharge can spell disaster in many environments, and especially those that contain volatile materials, sensitive electronics, or any other products and equipment that are vulnerable to a static event.

A well-chosen and applied ESD control flooring system directs accumulated static electricity harmlessly through conductive material in your substrate, ending in an earth ground.

What are the benefits, other than as an effective safety measure? Here are a few to consider:

  • Much more comprehensive protection is possible than more localized options can offer
  • Durable
  • Long-lasting
  • The surface is seamless and easily cleaned
  • Offers both conductive and dissipative qualities
  • Resists chemicals
  • A wide range of thicknesses are available
  • Color can be chosen to be meet your aesthetic needs
  • Low-odor

#5 Facility Maintenance Programs

In an attempt to not only serve but also educate our clients, we often reinforce the value of setting up a continuous facility maintenance plan. Why should you consider one?

  • One Fewer Thing to Worry About - As a property owner or manager, we know that you have a full to-do list (to say the least). Placing ongoing maintenance in the hands of a trustworthy painting and flooring company offers peace of mind and scheduling predictability.
  • Ongoing Savings - It’s no secret that maintenance is far more cost-effective than remediating a widespread problem. Don’t wait until your facility falls into disrepair - proactively keep it looking its best.
  • Safety - Accumulated dust and debris, obscured or faded floor markings, worn and chipped safety paint, failed floor systems... These all can lead to workplace accidents and increased liability.
  • Customizable Plans - Your maintenance professional can work with you to develop a plan that fits your needs, budget, and goals.
