Painting in Commercial Food Processing Plants
By Painters USA Team
— Last updated December 04, 2022
Anybody can simply grab a bucket of product, a brush, and say that they effectively painted a surface. And, it might even look decent for a couple of months! What makes a professional painter truly a professional, however, is having a thorough understanding of what a customer needs paired with the exact product and procedure to get the job done well.
This is especially true in commercial or agricultural processing plants. In places like these that are held to high standards and government regulations, you need a commercial painting company that understands.
Two Areas of Weakness in Food Processing Facilities
The following two problem areas are prime examples of why you can’t rely on just any painting company to meet your needs. In fact, working with someone who doesn’t have a firm grasp on what is required of the products they use can create more of an issue than you started with!
- Rust - Moisture and metal are never a great combination! And yet, in an environment like yours, steam and frequent washing are a necessary part of your day-to-day operations. This can lead to rust build-up on your equipment, floors, walls, and ceilings. At Painters USA, we have access to 27 different food-grade coatings that are approved by the FDA & USDA and can be applied to those surfaces that need rust protection.
- Thermal Shock - Have you ever been warned to not put cold water inside a hot glass, or vice versa? The rapid change in temperature can cause it to actually crack and even shatter. Well, did you know your floors are no different? If your floors are room temperature and then are washed with a high-pressure, high-temperature solution, the surface coating can crack and fail, creating gaps where bacteria will grow. We provide thermal shock resistant coatings, ranging from urethane cements to epoxies that stand up to high temperature and frequent cleaning.
As another layer to your recommended maintenance routine, have you considered investing in the services of a professional, industrial cleaning company? This is an ideal way to not only meet, but exceed, the governmental standards you’re held to. And, regular cleaning will help to preserve (even extend!) the lifespan of your equipment. At Painters USA you can find such services as:
- Floor scrubbing
- Industrial degreasing
- Pressure washing
- Mold remediation
As another option, an ongoing maintenance schedule is an ideal way to create a predictable, effective cleaning regimen.
