Tips for Commercial Interior Painting
No two projects are the same, yet our professional crew has completed thousands of diverse painting tasks. The following suggestions are always applicable and can help your painting project seem great no matter the surface, size of the building, interior or exterior.
1. Choosing the Right Color
When it comes to commercial painting, the color of the paint makes all the difference. Interiors of commercial buildings that are well-maintained contribute to the perception of attention to the client, resident, and employee experience satisfaction. Color can also be used to reinforce brand identification and values.
For example, a neutral color palette can be an excellent choice for the interior of multi-unit office buildings or organizations such as law firms. Retail stores, beauty salons, and other similar businesses, on the other hand, can profit from a more vibrant color palette. However, most commercial painting pros agree on one point: don’t overwhelm your consumers. Sometimes just one bold-accent wall is enough to make an impression.
2. Space Preparation
After choosing the colors for commercial interior painting, it’s time to get started on the prep work.
In addition to cleaning and safeguarding the interiors, it is critical to remove all décor from the walls, shelves, and other surfaces, as well as to move light-weight furniture away from the walls.
To avoid paint splashes and drips, cover the furniture with plastic and the floors with a drop cloth. Taping floor edges with painter’s tape is also a good idea because edges can be difficult to clean. In terms of cleanliness, just pressure washing mildew stains and dirt away improves the paint’s durability.
3. Filling all dents and sanding
We carefully inspect the walls and repair any dents or bumps after everything is nice and clean.
When it comes to covering fissures, plaster and a putter knife are the holy grail. Smoothing the surface with sandpaper removes imperfections, levels the surface, and creates an even foundation for the fresh coat of paint to adhere to. JXF Painting artists control dust with Festool equipment equipped with HEPA filters.
Once you’re confident that your surface is flat and appropriately prepared for work, apply a protective coat of paint and primer.
4. Always Use a Primer
Priming is a procedure that is sometimes overlooked by home painting but makes all the difference when it comes to commercial painting.
Primer, in addition to providing a substrate for paint to adhere to, acts as a barrier between the walls and a fresh coat of paint. As a result, it increases the longevity and preserves the integrity of the new paint. Tinted primers are ideal for concealing existing bright colors because they do not require as many layers to look neat.
Seasoned professionals understand how critical it is to apply primer and prepare the surface for painting to ensure the lifetime of paint applications.
5. Consider Your Employees’ Needs
If you are unable to arrange your painting project outside of business hours or during the holidays, you must consider the demands of your staff. Although our team takes all required safety precautions to safeguard the safety of not only our team but also our clients, you should discuss the project with your workers and ensure that they are aware of the work and timing of your project.
Bonus Tip: Choose the Right Painting Company
Because of the specific obstacles that come with commercial painting, take the time to find the best contractor for the project. An experienced contractor can make recommendations for proper project implementation that maximizes return on investment.
Make certain that the contractors are licensed and bonded so that you can be assured in the quality and safety of their services. A professional commercial painting contractor will also be able to understand the complexities of your project, as well as any other services that may be required.
