Why Every Property Owner Should Hire A Commercial Painting Service

by Nicholas Jenkins

Has your investment property seen better days? Do one or more of your rentals need some minor renovations, in order to attract new tenants? Taking care of most of the entire process yourself may initially seem like a good idea, but can quickly prove to be more tiring than expected. Although you are probably already working with professional plumbers and electricians, it may never have crossed your mind that some of the aesthetic tasks can be handled by someone else. The following are important reasons why you should hire a commercial painting service to refresh your investment property's paint:

Better surface cleaning: Painting, especially exterior painting, can take a lot of prep work. Before any paint is laid down, the entire surface must be clean and free of dirt. If you attempt to do this yourself and have no prior experience, you could end up with some areas that are perfectly clean while others have a soap scum build-up or are still covered with almost-invisible grime. A commercial painting service will know exactly how to clean the area so that it's ready to be painted. 

Safer preparation: The first time you attempt to use a pressure washer, you could end up breaking windows or creating pits in the surface of the building's exterior. You may think that a ladder is easy to use, but improper balancing or placement could result in falls and serious injuries. Your inexperience with using power equipment outdoors could result in a dangerous situation if you use something like an electrical paint sprayer without proper grounding. In contrast, a commercial painting service knows how to get your job done safely and efficiently. They know how to use a pressure washer effectively so that it doesn't damage your property. They won't make you worry about whether or not someone will fall and be injured on your property. They're also experienced with using all the necessary electrical tools so that you don't have to worry about any potential hazards.

Knowledge of laws and codes: Some paints and solvents available online may be outlawed in your area. Many municipalities have laws governing the type of supplies that are considered safe for the environment. The disposal of leftover painting supplies can also be complicated and possibly expensive if you have to pay a hazardous waste disposal fee. If you try to complete the painting without the assistance of a professional, you may end up running afoul of the law, incurring penalties and the potential of having to redo the entire job with the proper items. By hiring a commercial painting service, you won't have to worry whether or not your paints and the project as a whole are compliant with your local regulations.
