3 Ways to Save Money with Industrial Painting
A fresh coat of paint can make your company's interior more attractive. The application of new paint is one of the easiest ways to spruce up your work space, but many company owners avoid industrial painting because of the perceived costs associated with this process.
Here are three simple things that you can do to save money with industrial painting if your company needs a facelift in the near future.
1. Don't scrimp when it comes to purchasing painting equipment.
The ability to quickly and accurately apply a coat of paint is made possible only with access to the right type of painting equipment. When it comes to purchasing the rollers and brushes that will be used to paint your work space, be sure that you are invest in quality equipment.
Look for brushes with fibers that will not shed and rollers with a heavy nap that can hold a lot of paint. When you have quality painting equipment, it takes less time to coat your work space with a new coat of paint, reducing the amount of time and money associated with your painting project.
2. Use paint products that have a low VOC count.
Anyone who has been around wet paint knows that there are some significant fumes associated with paint products. These fumes can contain VOCs, or volatile organic compounds.
If you don't want to have to incur the expense of shutting down your production in order to keep employees away from paint fumes, you can opt to invest in a paint product that has a low VOC count. When using a low-VOC paint, your employees can continue working in the area being painted without running the risk of being exposed to noxious fumes.
3. Consider the addition of a specialized coating.
If your work area is exposed to high levels of moisture on a regular basis, this water could cause your new paint to peel. Saving money on your industrial painting can be achieved by reducing the frequency with which you need to paint your work area.
The addition of a specialized coating to your new paint may cost more up front, but the coating will extend the life of your paint to help reduce the need to invest in a new paint job every few years. Look for an antimicrobial or mold- and mildew-resistant coating to add to your industrial paint products.
Being able to identify some key ways to save money when it comes to industrial painting will allow you to affordably update the look of your work space.
