 Industrial Painting and Coating: Make Sure Your Facility is Ready for Winter

Any­one who has spent a win­ter in New Eng­land knows that the weath­er can become, well, less than pleas­ant at times. If you are able to play in it, enjoy­ing ski­ing, snow­mo­bil­ing, or maybe snow­board­ing, it can be a par­adise. But if you have to work in the mid­dle of the cold and snow it is not quite as enjoy­able. In antic­i­pa­tion of the quick slide from fall to win­ter, you might invest in warmer gear and brace your­self for the weath­er ahead.

But what about your facil­i­ty? Can you pre­pare your build­ings and equip­ment for winter?

4 Tips to Pre­pare Your Facility

Here are a few main­te­nance ideas to con­sid­er as we step into the cold­er season:

  • Inspect your facil­i­ty — Take the time to look for trou­ble spots in your exte­ri­or paint, coat­ings, and con­crete. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, these weak areas are not going to be imper­vi­ous to the chang­ing weath­er ahead, espe­cial­ly in light of the tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­a­tions that the North­east is famous for. Elim­i­nat­ing any issues now is a wise investment.
  • Water­proof­ing — Seal­ing mois­ture out is an ide­al strat­e­gy for pro­tect­ing your resources, espe­cial­ly in a time of year when water melts and pools, putting addi­tion­al strain on seals, weath­strip­ping, and exist­ing coatings.

  • Rust­proof coat­ing — Exposed met­al is basi­cal­ly on the front lines of the bat­tle between win­ter and your facil­i­ty. Dirt, slush, salt, and trapped snow will work against the integri­ty of your sur­faces. Invest­ing in a rust­proof coat­ing can pro­tect against deterioration.

  • Check for block­ages in your gut­ter sys­tem - Pres­sure wash­ing debris out of your gut­ters seems like a rel­a­tive­ly small thing to do, but it real­ly pays off! It’s a great way to ensure that any runoff won’t get trapped. As the water pours out of your gut­ters it also is a good time to make sure that it has a point of egress, rather than just pool­ing and cre­at­ing frozen, haz­ardous spots this winter.
