Ceilings in industrial and commercial properties may not get as much attention as the walls or exterior, but ceiling coating or painting jobs are just as important. Drop ceilings, textured ceilings, concrete ceilings or exposed bar joist ceilings of the type found in warehouses, manufacturing/processing facilities or retail and food service buildings may be utilitarian, yet their professional appearance and functionality is affected by the painting jobs in many ways:
- Lighting is one of the main advantages of quality ceiling painting jobs. Ceiling painting can brighten an interior space drastically, which in turn decreases lighting costs, improves worker and customer safety, cuts down on accidents and increases productivity.
- Professional appearance is also important, not only for retail, office, restaurant and other commercial spaces, but also for industrial spaces. Ceilings tend to collect dust and residue from the activities conducted in the building, creating a poor impression on customers and business clients, and a failing paint job will even drop paint chips.
- Safety must also be taken into consideration, not only in terms of lighting but also for fire hazards and contamination of products (especially in food processing facilities). The residue and dust that builds on ceilings can fall onto materials below, and in some cases make the ceiling more flammable.
These and other issues are some of the reasons business owners and facility managers take advantage of ceiling painting services. A commercial and industrial painting contractor will first clean and/or prepare the ceiling, and can determine the best surface preparation whether it be pressure washing or hand cleaning. Since ceiling painting takes place over an entire facility, it is also important to take necessary measures to protect your equipment or merchandise from metal paint overspray. This involves masking, covering or moving items, and in some cases using a “dry fall” metal paint, the overspray of which dries into a dust before hitting the ground level for easy sweep up.
