 Keeping it Green: Ecofriendly Commercial Painting

When it comes to improv­ing and main­tain­ing your indus­tri­al facil­i­ty, you do not want to hire just any com­mer­cial paint­ing com­pa­ny. Your busi­ness has cer­tain stan­dards, after all, and the paint­ing ser­vice you hire should, at the very least, abide by those same stan­dards; if not go above and beyond them.

For starters, you want your painters to use high-qual­i­ty paint, work in a time­ly fash­ion, and fol­low safe­ty pro­to­cols along the way. But there are many oth­er con­sid­er­a­tions to take into account as well. As our cul­ture becomes more envi­ron­men­tal­ly-con­scious, many peo­ple and com­pa­nies are mov­ing towards green solu­tions, includ­ing many com­mer­cial paint­ing con­trac­tors.

Kaloutas is one such com­pa­ny and proud to offer eco-friend­ly paint solu­tions for all our clients. If you are won­der­ing why this mat­ters to us, let us explain.

Why Go Green, Anyway?

If you are skep­ti­cal or unfa­mil­iar with the shift towards find­ing green­er solu­tions, you might not be aware of its prac­ti­cal impli­ca­tions. Indeed, it turns out that there are many rea­sons to go green, no mat­ter what indus­try you are in. Let us look at just two major ben­e­fits of keep­ing the envi­ron­ment in mind.

Worker/​Customer Health and Safety

First, con­sid­er your inter­nal oper­a­tions; where your employ­ees spend most of their time. In the man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try, work­ers are sur­round­ed by machin­ery, chem­i­cals, and oth­er haz­ardous objects that require spe­cif­ic safe­ty pre­cau­tions. As it turns out, indus­tri­al paint itself, designed to main­tain the inte­ri­or space and equip­ment, can also be haz­ardous. It only makes sense to guard against this poten­tial danger.

Grant­ed, all types of paint today have become safer in gen­er­al. In the past, how­ev­er, most paint options con­tained what are known as volatile organ­ic com­pounds (VOCs); which, when evap­o­rat­ed, could cause res­pi­ra­to­ry ill­ness and oth­er health con­cerns in work­ers. While most mod­ern paint com­pa­nies have done their best to remove VOCs from their prod­ucts, some brands are still safer than oth­ers. Kaloutas offers zero- and low-VOC paint options for all our clients.

Pro­tect­ing the Big­ger Pic­ture (and Your Reputation)

Envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly paint also helps pro­tect your local envi­ron­ment. It might not seem like much, but as more and more indus­tries adopt green solu­tions, the out­side air becomes clean­er for every­one. Why not con­tribute to this effort?

This mis­sion to keep the earth clean is good in and of itself. But doing so can also yield some pos­i­tive exter­nal­i­ties for your busi­ness, name­ly its rep­u­ta­tion. Cus­tomers and clients who val­ue the envi­ron­ment appre­ci­ate when com­pa­nies make an effort to clean up their act. If you want to gain more trust and respect in your com­mu­ni­ty, invest­ing in eco-friend­ly com­mer­cial paint­ing is a great place to start.
