Tips to Maintain Commercial Paint

Tips to Maintain Commercial Paint

Posted By

Chipping, peeling, and cracking paint can make your workspace look dull and boring and make a bad first impression on your visitors. A drab workplace will also affect employee morale and productivity. 

As a business owner, you should make maintaining your commercial paint a priority. Regular maintenance will extend the useful life of your paint and prevent problems. 

Here are some tips for maintaining your paint. 

Perform Regular Inspections 

Inspect your building’s interior and exterior paint at least once every month. Check for minor issues such as fading and chipping and major problems like mold, mildew, and rust. 

If you notice any issues such as damaged caulking or minor peeling, bubbling, or chipping, address them promptly. Performing monthly inspections is a great way to diagnose issues before they spin out of control.  

Make Required Repairs Promptly 

Repair chipped, peeling paint as soon as possible. Fill holes. To repair bubbling paint, you may have to repaint the entire surface or the affected area. Remember to sand surfaces before repainting them. 

If any areas need a touchup, special treatment, or more intense cleaning, contact a professional painter to discuss your paint maintenance options. 

Clean Your Walls Regularly 

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of cleaning walls regularly. Routine cleaning is an important aspect of maintaining your commercial paint. Steer clear of abrasive cleaning products that contain harmful ingredients such as alcohol and solvents. Use a simple soap and water solution instead of chemical-based cleaners to remove minor buildup. 

To prevent dirt from accumulating on your walls, dust them regularly with a microfiber cloth once every two months. Vacuum your walls with a soft brush attachment. 

Pressure wash exterior walls to clear away dust and outdoor debris. Be careful while using a pressure washer, or you may inadvertently damage the paint or coating. Use a cleaning solution to get stubborn stains out of your wall and exterior structures. 

If you are unable to get rid of stains even after pressure washing and applying a cleaning solution, touch up the paint in the affected areas.  

Maintain Your AC 

Excessive condensation on your air conditioner is a recipe for disaster. Moisture can damage the surrounding paint. Have a professional inspect and maintain your air conditioning system at least once a year. During maintenance, your technician will repair leaking ducts and replace filters to prevent excess condensation.
