 How We Extend the Life of Your Commercial Paint Job

Paint­ing your com­mer­cial space should be an invest­ment, not an after­thought. You want to hire a com­mer­cial paint­ing com­pa­ny that will respond to your needs, do the job prop­er­ly and effi­cient­ly, and leave you with a paint job that will last a long time. Kaloutas ful­fills these require­ments and goes above and beyond. You want the best for your busi­ness, so that is what we pro­vide. Here is how we extend the life of your com­mer­cial paint job.

How to Boost Your Com­mer­cial Paint­ing’s Lifespan

Before Paint­ing

There are plen­ty of con­sid­er­a­tions to make before we paint any fea­ture of a facil­i­ty. If you want the best results, prepa­ra­tion is vital. The first step is to deter­mine which paint prod­ucts are best for your var­i­ous sur­faces. Your floors, walls, and equip­ment most like­ly all require dif­fer­ent types of paint and coat­ing solu­tions. For instance, some type of rust pre­ven­ta­tive coat­ing is ide­al for met­al sur­faces prone to oxi­da­tion, such as tanks, struc­tur­al steel com­po­nents, and oth­er heavy equipment.

Clean­li­ness and sur­face prepa­ra­tion are also key to ensur­ing your paint’s longevi­ty. If your sur­faces are not clean, com­mer­cial paint will have a hard­er time adher­ing to them, mean­ing it will peel and fail pre­ma­ture­ly. So, we make sure to clean and prime all rel­e­vant sur­faces before paint­ing them.

Dur­ing Painting

When com­mer­cial paint­ing begins, we tack­le each sur­face method­i­cal­ly, mak­ing sure to not let any paint land where it should not. When paint­ing walls, ceil­ings, and machin­ery, it is stan­dard to lay down drop cloths on floors beneath the paint­ing areas so the floors remain dry.

We also put up wall pro­tec­tion sheets to help walls dry or sim­ply keep them guard­ed against any poten­tial paint splat­ter. This is espe­cial­ly impor­tant when using sprayers to apply paint, as the small par­ti­cles can be some­what unpredictable.

Of course, it is also cru­cial to remove and/​or cov­er any machin­ery or fea­tures that will not be paint­ed. It is all about keep­ing the paint where it is sup­posed to be. Tak­ing these steps and pre­cau­tions will pro­tect your facil­i­ty, keep it look­ing beau­ti­ful, and, most impor­tant­ly, extend the life of your paint job. Wall pro­tec­tors, in par­tic­u­lar, ensure that your sur­faces dry prop­er­ly, with­out interference.

After Paint­ing

Once the paint is applied and cured, your new­ly paint­ed sur­faces need to stay pro­tect­ed from phys­i­cal and chem­i­cal harm. Oth­er types of pro­tec­tive coat­ings may also be desired to guard against impact dam­age, ther­mal shock, or moisture.

Out­side of the paint itself, Kaloutas will install cor­ner guards in your facil­i­ty, which will pre­vent severe impact dam­age from equip­ment. These mea­sures will reduce the amount of main­te­nance paint­ing you will have to invest in over time.

Your facility’s paint job keeps your prop­er­ty pro­tect­ed, func­tion­al, and beau­ti­ful. The longer it lasts, the bet­ter. Some main­te­nance and touch-ups will always be required, but with a high-qual­i­ty paint job from Kaloutas, you can rest assured that your floors, walls, ceil­ings, and equip­ment will be in tip-top shape for years to come.
