Starting a new year means a chance for a fresh start. Even though it’s largely symbolic, flipping the calendar to January 1 represents an opportunity to put the previous 12 months in the rearview mirror and move forward with a clean slate. Manufacturers and other industrial companies may approach this in a number of ways.
They may hire people, implement initiatives or tweak branding. One of the best ways to refresh your operations — and help you save money and potential trouble in the process — is to give your commercial buildings a facelift. If you haven’t considered it yet, there are a number of reasons why repainting your commercial facility in 2020 can provide you with a solid foundation to take on your organizational goals.
Here are some examples of how a fresh coat of paint can improve your commercial building for the new year.
Benefits of New Paint
Whether it’s a factory, warehouse, distribution center, processing plant or any other type of building, facilities such as these are the backdrop for a lot of hard work. This means the walls, floors, tanks and other elements inside facilities are subject to a lot of wear and tear over the course of a typical year. Chances are your property is showing at least some signs of aging right now. Although you may be inclined to think it’s merely cosmetic, a fresh coat of paint does more than improve appearance. The benefits include:
- Safety — Resealing floors for the new year can help ensure that non-skid coatings are properly applied. This can help prevent the slip-and-fall accidents that make up most lost-time incidents. It’s also a good time to freshen directional and safety markings on your floor to ensure workers are aware of hazards, etc.
- Protection — If you have tanks or other equipment on-site, keeping them coated with the right paints is essential for guarding against rust. If they’re exposed to the elements for too long, it could jeopardize your chances of making the most of these investments.
- Appearance — It may not be high on your list of priorities, but don’t discount the value of a bright, clean facility. Not only does it have the potential to impress potential clients and customers, but it also has the potential to elevate the mood of your employees. When they feel better about their work environment, they’re likely to put more effort into their jobs.
