Whether you manage a multifamily unit, run a warehouse, or own a multi-unit office building, you want your building to look good. There are also many benefits to regularly repainting your rental property such as a higher retention rate, avoiding deferred maintenance costs, and quickly attracting new renters.
You’d like your customers and clients to know you care and keeping the property maintained is a great way to do that. The following are some other reasons why it’s important to keep current on interior painting maintenance of your commercial building.
Certain issues within a property can cause safety hazards. Old paint can cause a lot of safety hazards for your business. In many situations, all it takes is a quick fix by a professional, some minor paintwork to create a healthy area. Doing this can prevent unhealthy mold growth, exposure to the elements, and more.
By using quality paint, you can also provide healthier air. Remember that people breathe the air in a room, so you must make sure that the paint fumes aren’t dangerous. Therefore, choosing in favor of paint with no VOCs (or a very low level of these harmful chemicals) should be your concern.
A coat of quality paint may safeguard walls from possible damage caused by moisture, dirt, or other detrimental effects. It can be a long-lasting preventive solution that’ll help maintain a good quality of the walls and seal them from insects, mold, water, etc.
In addition, it’ll protect the surface from possible hazards, like old layers of lead paint, possible deterioration, or other damage.
When a property owner takes care to stay on top of interior painting maintenance, there’s generally a higher payoff. For example, if a spot of paint begins to peel off the wall, you can touch it up and it’ll be good as new again. If you leave such signs of wear for an extended period of time, more and more paint will peel off, possibly in other areas around the room, until you have to repaint it entirely.
Small touch-ups here and there will cost significantly less than painting an entire room. Plus, it’ll beneficially influence the visual aesthetics of the property.
Whether it should be or not, image is sometimes everything in the professional world. A highly maintained interior with the proper paint shows clients and customers that you mean business. It shows your level of professionalism and lets others know you are good at taking care of things.
Furthermore, think about how many hours your employees spend at work. This is another reason why the look of the workspace also matters. Neatly painted interiors can provide your personnel with a welcoming climate, the needed comfort, and a cozier environment.
Proper interior painting maintenance can often cut down the amount of time it takes to care for a building. When you take care of the small things as they come, you can avoid resulting in bigger projects that will take a chunk of your time to repair. The general recommendation is to repaint the interiors of a commercial building every 2-3 years.
