 Have You Checked Your Office Paint Job for These Problems?

With the hus­tle and bus­tle of oper­at­ing a busi­ness and serv­ing cus­tomers, com­mer­cial paint­ing main­te­nance is some­times over­looked. But miss­ing mis­takes or prob­lems with your office paint job could low­er your morale and may neg­a­tive­ly impact your bot­tom line.

Poor Qual­i­ty Paint­ing is Bad for Business

The qual­i­ty of your office inte­ri­or paint job affects your aes­thet­ic, which impacts your employ­ees’ com­fort lev­el in their work envi­ron­ment. Busi­ness writer Jacob Mor­gan has stud­ied this rela­tion­ship in-depth. He says, Per­haps one of the largest fac­tors of well-being is the phys­i­cal work­space. Employ­ees who enjoy and like the envi­ron­ments they are a part of will be more engaged, pro­duc­tive, hap­py, and healthy.”

If your atten­tion to detail (like keep­ing paint look­ing bright, clean, and fresh) shows that you val­ue your employ­ees’ work­space, they’re more like­ly to val­ue their own work.

The neg­a­tive impact of poor com­mer­cial paint­ing main­te­nance doesn’t stop inside the build­ing. The qual­i­ty of your busi­ness exte­ri­or paint job makes an imme­di­ate impres­sion on your cus­tomers before they even walk through the door to do busi­ness with you.

Com­mon Prob­lems with Com­mer­cial Paint Jobs

To main­tain a good first impres­sion, keep an eye out for these issues with your office paint job, being sure to check both the inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or of your office space.

  • Is your paint cracked or peel­ing? If lay­ers of paint don’t adhere prop­er­ly to one anoth­er or to the sur­face, mois­ture can creep in and cause cracks or peels in the finish.
  • Does your paint have bub­bles or blis­ters on or under the sur­face? If your paint­ing sur­face was too warm, or wasn’t com­plete­ly dry, bub­bles or blis­ters can appear on the surface.
  • Do you see signs of mold or mildew? Shel­tered or damp walls can be home to mildew, as well as oth­er fun­gus and bac­te­ria. If pre­vi­ous paint jobs have not includ­ed antibac­te­r­i­al or anti­fun­gal com­po­nents, they are more like­ly to grow and spread. If you find fun­gus or bac­te­ria, the sur­face will need to be prop­er­ly cleaned, treat­ed, and dried before paint is reapplied.
  • Has your paint dis­col­ored or fad­ed over time? Tem­per­a­ture and mois­ture fluc­tu­a­tions around the paint on the inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or of your office can cause paint to fade.

Solve Paint Prob­lems for Good

Don’t pan­ic if you find prob­lems with your inte­ri­or or exte­ri­or com­mer­cial paint­ing. It can be tempt­ing to do DIY patch jobs” to cor­rect paint issues, but a pro­fes­sion­al paint­ing con­trac­tor knows exact­ly how to dry, prep, and treat a sur­face to get to the root of the prob­lem, cor­rect it, beau­ti­fy your fin­ish­es, and extend the life of your paint job.

Your con­trac­tor can also ensure that any paint­ing main­te­nance you need is done with your employ­ees’ health, safe­ty, and pro­duc­tiv­i­ty in mind. They can help you explore your options for antimi­cro­bial and anti­fun­gal paints and fin­ish­es, ensure work­ers are not sub­ject to fumes, and plan projects with you for dates and times that don’t inter­fere with your doing business.
