Commercial Buildings: How to Maintain Freshly Painted Walls

Has your office just spiced up its commercial building’s interior walls with a fresh coat of paint? With so many people returning back to work, many businesses are updating the interior of their offices with newly painted walls.

Of course, you want to keep it looking fresh as long as possible. Luckily, we have some easy ways to help maintain the paint on the interior walls.

Get The Job Done Right

It all starts with getting the paint job done right from the start. For such a big task such as painting the interior walls of a commercial building, turn to the professionals. East Valley Painters has the experience and skill to get the paint job done right. We use only the highest-quality paint and the best painting techniques to protect walls from cracking and peeling.

Protect The Walls

Add extra protection to the walls once the paint job is complete. This means doing your best to prevent added damage to the paint and walls from things in the building, like door stoppers, which are known to scratch the paint right off walls.

Start by carefully arranging furniture so you can limit the amount of furniture up against the walls. If you are placing chairs or tables against the painted walls, add rubber or cloth buffers to prevent leaving any unwanted marks or scratching the paint off. Remember, the quality of the paint used is going to be the first layer of protection.

Keep The Walls Clean

It also helps to keep the walls of the building clean. Dust can actually lead to discoloration of the walls, so it is a good idea to not only dust the walls regularly but also get a professional cleaning done at least once a year.

Make sure to also dust any items hanging on the wall, too!

By using East Valley Painters to add a new coat of paint to keeping the walls clean, you can help extend the life of newly painted walls in your commercial building!

The Impacts Weather Can Have on Exterior Painting

Yes, weather and exterior painting go hand in hand. It can be difficult to do a painting job in harsh weather conditions. So, what is the relationship between weather and exterior painting?

Luckily, we see over 300 days of sunshine here in the valley of the sun. We usually have the most perfect weather to get the job done. Yes, Phoenix does see extreme heat in the summer and get some crazy thunderstorms (we will discuss this below), but East Valley Painters is still able to get the job done in these conditions.

Rain

We do see a few rainy days across the valley, but how does this affect exterior painting? Obviously, we can’t paint when it is raining out. But how long after do we need to wait after the storm has cleared? It all depends on the surface and the shape it is in. Do you have stucco and Is it In good shape? A light rain should only impact the job for the day if that. Get lots of rain and have wood? We will need to wait almost 3 full days. Remember, the surface needs to be dry to do the job. If not, the paint can bubble, blister, or peel. A moisture meter can be used to determine if the surface is dry enough.

Monsoon

In Phoenix, the summer months bring us monsoons. This isn’t just rain, but also wind and dust storms. This is unusual around the country, but very common in Phoenix. They usually pop-up in the late afternoon and evening, but does this still impact your paint job?

At East Valley Painters, we like to start early so we are usually done by the time the storms move in. However, we still watch the radar so that we have plenty of time to clean-up before the thunderstorm approaches.

When your home is it with a dust storm, we will always spray off any dust or dirt before resuming the job.

Extreme Heat

It is not uncommon to see triple digits for 100 days out of the year in Phoenix. It can get really hot and yes it is hard on the workers, but with years of experience working in the sun, they know how to deal. We try to adjust our hours to work earlier in the day to get the job done, when it is cooler and have plenty of sunlight. But does the heat have any impact on the paint?

Yes, high temperatures can stop the paint from binding together properly, causing peels and cracks. This is why we like to start the job before it reaches the highest temperature of the day. Luckily, we don’t have much humidity here in Phoenix to impact the drying process. The gentle breezes we see often helps speed up the drying process up.

The Importance of Color Consistency When Painting

When painting the walls and ceilings of your home or business, you want to make sure that the color is consistent. The professionals can do it, so it isn’t impossible for you to do it too! If you are going to be tackling the task of painting yourself, here are some pro tips to ensure a beautiful result and consistent paint job!

Be Prepared!

Once you decide on the color you are going to use, make sure you buy enough paint. It is best to overestimate since it is ok to have extra on hand for any touchups. Of course, you also have to make sure you have the right tools for the job. A 5 gallon bucket is going to be very useful to mix up the paint so that the color is more consistent. You can pour any extra paint back into the can and properly store for later if needed. You will also need a tray, roller and paint brush.

Paint Like the Pros

It is actually quite simple to ensure a consistent paint job, you just need to pay attention to the details! For a consistent paint job, you need to be consistent with your technique. A roller and tray is going to save you a lot of time when painting bigger areas. First, paint the edges with a paint brush, then use a roller to blend and smooth the paint. Just make sure you are doing this while the paint is still wet. Remember to always wash the rollers when changing paint colors!

When painting, make sure to paint the strokes down to the floor and apply the same amount of pressure with each stroke. If you add an extra layer of paint, make sure you are adding the same number of layers all over the wall or ceiling. Make sure that paint dries completely then apply another layer.

Updating the Paint Without Impacting Your Business

There is going to be a time when your business may need to update the exterior or interior paint. Of course, you always want your business to look its best, so renovations are going to be expected every few years. So, how do you update the paint without having to close your business? Luckily, there are ways to do this without disrupting your operations!

Set-up Areas

Always make sure to set-up designated areas that are closed off for painting. This means roping off the areas that you are working on, so only work on one area at a time. This will help direct traffic and keep customers safe as well as keeping the area clean and avoiding any chaos, especially near the entrance.

Notify Your Customers

Before and during your renovation, always notify your customers! Do this by posting flyers and sending out emails. Make sure you give plenty of notice and let customers know how long you anticipate the renovation to last. Also, explain what they can expect and how this renovation will better the business. This should hopefully minimize any angry customers.

Work Around Your Hours

Be smart when it comes to working on your renovations. Take advantage of your slow times and try to do most of the work outside of regular business hours. This way, painting either the interior or exterior of your business will not impact employees doing their job or your customers. Painting can produce strong fumes, which can be an issues. In addition to these fumes, the noise and burden of all the equipment can get in the way.

Be Ready for Complaints

Even if you do everything right, there is going to be customers who will complain no matter. Be prepared for this and handle these complaints head on. Just be honest with your customers and apologize to them. Also, ensure that the new paint project will make things better. Let them know that their input is valuable and always take the time to listen.
