Paint can fade over time and industrial painting services can make a huge difference. In fact, industrial painting services should be part of your regular maintenance checks.
Flaking, bubbling, and chipping paint doesn’t look great but it can also become a health and safety issue – especially in food processing and manufacturing plants.
Keeping on top of painting issues with regular maintenance or checks will mean you are less likely to need a full repaint.
However, overtime paint does wear out.
Worn paint can drastically change the appearance of your industrial premises.
So how do you know when it’s time to book in for industrial painting services?
Here are three signs to look out for.
Flaking, peeling, bubbling, and chipped paint
Paint can last for years if applied properly but over time it does wear out. If you have any flaking, peeling, bubbling, or chips in your paint, that’s the time to consider doing something about it.
The last thing you need is to recall your products because of paint found in your food items. Paint flakes can become a hazard as they can fall onto machinery and food processing equipment and yes… end up in your product!
Flaking, peeling, bubbling or chipping can be caused by moisture, humidity, harsh sunlight, and chemicals. The level of damage to your paint will decide whether or not you need to touch up the area or need a full repaint.
It’s also important to consider the age of your building. If you are going to repaint, the old paint may contain lead – and this is when you definitely need a professional industrial painting service.
Lead paint: Dangerous levels of lead may be present in paint dust, paint flakes or paint waste which if swallowed or inhaled, can be very harmful to humans.
Your paint is faded or starting to fade
Fading on painted surfaces can look untidy. Exterior surfaces are more prone to paint fade over time and especially when the painted surface has not been maintained.
It’s a good idea to consider industrial painting services if your paint is fading. If left untreated, it can eventually lead to flaking and peeling which leads to considerable expense further down the track.
People definitely notice whether your building has a tidy appearance or not and first impressions do count. If your paint is starting to look aged and faded then it is time to call in a professional industrial painting service.
Marks or staining on your surfaces
Marks or staining can appear on the building interior or exterior surfaces for many reasons. On the exterior of a building – moss, mould and algae can leave marks that can make a building look untidy and aged. So if you do spot mould, moss or algae growths make sure you book a treatment with a professional to help stop further problems.
An industrial painting service will help spruce up your building – remedy marks and stains and help to prevent them from happening again when treated properly.
