Your Checklist for Preparing Your Office for Painting [infographic]

Like any other space, your office is going to need a fresh coat of paint every once in a while. Since commercial painting involves more logistics and involvement than painting your home, there are certain steps, which we’ve listed below, to take to make your commercial painting project go smoothly. Here at Prep-Rite Painting, we’re always happy to help, so make sure you call us if you want help from our professional, reliable painters!

Your Checklist for Preparing Your Office for Painting [infographic]

  • Decide what you want—Do you want to paint your entire office or just a conference room or your waiting area? What colors do you want to use? Decide how you want your office to be painted before you do anything else.
  • Get a quote—Once you know what you want, let our commercial painters know. We’ll put together a customized quote based on your vision, your timeframe, and your budget.
  • Make headway on repairs—Painting your office is a great time to make headway on repairs your workspace needs, such as water damage, walls with holes, fire damage, or rotted wood.
  • Clear the area—Before our painting crew arrives, make sure the work area is completely clear. Move cabinets and desks away from the walls, for example, and remove any items you don’t want paint to get on.
  • Give your employees the day off—If you want to do the painting during business hours on a workday, consider giving your employees the day off or make arrangements to have them work remotely. This is a matter of convenience and safety, as paint fumes can cause dizziness, nausea, and headaches.
  • Have your janitorial staff clean the walls—Make sure your walls are in the best shape possible to be painted. While we will prep the space, ask your janitorial or maintenance staff to remove screws or frames from the walls and do a quick wipe-down to remove grime.
  • Inform office neighbors or nearby tenants—If you operate your business out of a multi-unit building, let your office neighbors and nearby tenants know that our painting crews will be coming in and out during the project.
