As a business owner, the way your building looks says a lot about how your company operates. There’s no better way to make a positive first impression than with a high-quality commercial paint job both inside and out. A professional paint job on the exterior draws people in with attractive curb appeal. A fresh coat of paint on the interior helps create a renewed and more comfortable environment for both employees and customers.
All renovation projects are an investment in your business. Interior painting, however, is one project that all employees and customers will notice instantly. Regularly updating your interior spaces with a fresh coat of paint is a cost-effective way to demonstrate your commitment to maintaining a positive environment for clients, customers, and employees.
Is It Time to Repaint?
There are many factors that can affect how long the paint on interior walls lasts. Some rooms will need to be repainted more frequently based on the amount of wear and tear they receive, while other paint jobs last significantly longer. Here are six reasons to consider repainting your office interior:
1. Time since Last Paint Job
Several factors determine how long paint will last. These include the amount of usage, exposure to sunlight and UV rays, and the indoor temperature and humidity levels On average, professional painters recommend that office interiors be repainted about every three years.
Areas where paint is cracking or flaking aren’t just unsightly. Airborne paint particles create a potential health hazard for both employees and visitors. If your building was built before 1978, there’s a chance that you could be dealing with paint that has lead in it. Lead paint is most dangerous when it’s cracking, blistering, or flaking because lead-contaminated dust particles can be released into the air.
3. Hard to Clean Walls
If the walls are hard to keep clean, repainting will make routine maintenance easier. Choosing the right finish improves both the appearance and washability of a new paint job. Flat paint is generally less “washable” than other finishes but is an excellent option for low-traffic areas. A high-quality paint with an eggshell or satin finish is easier to clean. It’s the gloss that helps seal the paint and allows messes to be easily wiped off.
4. To Protect Interior Surfaces
Just as exterior paint is used to protect your property from weather, extreme temperatures, and other elements, interior paint is an effective way to protect walls, doors, and trim. A high-quality paint job minimizes damage from moisture and can help surfaces hold up longer from normal wear and tear. If your interior paint is showing visible signs of wear, its ability to protect the surface underneath is compromised.
5. To Improve the Working Environment
If your office walls are painted a dull shade of gray, white, or beige, it might be time for a new paint job. According to a study conducted by the University of Texas, these colors often induce feelings of sadness and depression. Choosing the right colors can improve employee productivity and their overall sense of wellbeing so it’s important to consider color psychology when repainting office environments.
6. To Meet Regulations
Buildings constructed before 1978 are likely to have lead paint on the walls. Any renovation, repair, or painting project may release hazardous lead dust into the air. Local regulations may require you to repaint and eliminate lead paint hazards before undergoing renovations.
The Benefits of Repainting
A fresh coat of paint on your office walls every two to three years is an investment in your business. The appearance of your interior can go a long way toward generating new business.
Potential customers or clients will notice a poorly maintained interior that shows signs of cracking, fading, or peeling. A freshly painted office shows your commitment to your business and your customers.
Repainting office interiors can easily become a time-consuming project. Working with an experienced paint contractor will ensure the job is completed quickly and professionally. Professional painters can help you choose the right colors and finishes to create a long-lasting paint job that sends a positive message about your business.
