A fresh paint job is the easiest and most cost-effective way to give your business a facelift. With the wave of a brush, your industrial premises will look as good as new, making the space more appealing to customers. In addition, it will create a more pleasant atmosphere for staff, encouraging a sense of pride and – hopefully – encouraging a tidy workplace.
However, there are some factors to keep in mind when planning to paint your industrial space.
What you need to know about painting an industrial space
You’ll need to hire industrial painters
While most of us have done a bit of painting around the home, it is important to note that when it comes to your industrial paint project, you’ll need to hire professional industrial painters.
Painting a large commercial or industrial property requires specialists – it’s not legal to ask your staff to do it! There are likely to be height and access challenges which means that specialist equipment and training is necessary to do the job safely.
Remember to account for downtime
Painting a large industrial space, including the walls, floor, and ceiling, can put you out of action for some time, making it a costly investment when loss of productivity is factored in.
Professional warehouse painters will be able to get the job done neatly and efficiently, minimising your downtime. It is well and truly worth the investment to get your company back in action sooner.
Get the necessary permissions before you start
If you’re a tenant in an industrial unit, you may need to get permission from the body corporate or property manager to paint. This is particularly the case when your business is located in an industrial estate and you plan on painting the building exterior.
If in doubt, it’s always advisable to ask the question – otherwise you might be required to pay for a repaint, too!
