Prepping the Space
The key to quality warehouse painting using industrial paint is to undertake proper surface preparation. Surface preparation may involve simple sanding or scrapping to more aggressive preparation like sandblasting, power washing and vacuum blasting. During surface preparing, molds and mildew are removed as ignoring them will result in their build up which will later lead to more expensive repairs in future. A well prepared surface will properly absorb the industrial paint and is cost effective in terms of reducing the amount of paint to be used.
After surface preparation, your warehouse painting contractor will begin by undertaking exterior painting. Even though the exterior of your warehouse is what people will see, the main reason for painting the exterior using industrial paint is not mainly for the purpose of aesthetics but important in protecting the warehouse from weather damage. Painting the warehouse interior with light reflective paint is advisable as it will not only help improve the appearance of the warehouse but will greatly improve its lighting efficiency, and covering the floor with a hard wearing floor paint will also be beneficial in extending the wear and tear of the place.
Painting your warehouse using industrial paint is the best decision you could ever make as once painted by a reputable and professional painter, it will take several years before repainting.
