Nothing can brighten up an office like a brand new paint job. But before your professional painters come in, there are a few things you want to do to prepare your office for painting.

Decide What You Want

Before your painting appointment you want to be sure of two things:

  1. You understand what the painter is going to do, the pricing estimate and when the work will be done.
  2. The painting company knows what you want to be done.

Before the painters even show up for your job, you should know what areas you want to be painted and what colors you want to be used.

The right painting company will listen to your concerns and work with you to give your business the look you want. At Texas Professional Painting, we understand that your business’s look is a major part of the impression your business leaves on clients and it should represent your vision and desires.

Have Repairs Done Ahead Of Time

If you have areas of damage such as rotted wood, walls with holes or water damage, have the damage repaired before even considering a paint job. You can’t put lipstick on a pig. Rotted wood, fire damage, bmold and water damage can cause major problems and painting over it won’t resolve the potential issues. If you have certain damage many companies offer restoration painting.

Make Space

Clear the area to be painted before your painting contractor arrives. Move cabinets or desks away from the walls. By clearing the area, you are making it easier for the painters to get around and also reducing the risk of tripping hazards.

Give Employees The Day Off

If you work with your painting company, you can typically schedule your project after business hours. However, if you have your painting done the day before a work day, you might consider giving your employees the day off or allowing them to work from home to prevent them from inhaling fresh paint fumes. Exposure to paint fumes can cause headaches, nausea and dizziness.

Clean The Walls

When adding some color to your walls you want to make sure they are in their best shape to be painted. Before your appointment, makes sure all wall art, frames, plaques, etc. are removed from the wall. Additionally, remove any nails or screws from the area that is being painted.  If you see any splatters or dirt, wipe the walls down using a wet cloth or paper towel.

Inform Tenants Or Close Neighbors

If you are the landlord of a multi office building or a tenant (with approval to paint), let your neighbors know that you have a painting company come in to paint. This is important so that your neighbors won’t be thrown off by unexpected visitors or potential fumes. If you are the landlord of a commercial office building be sure that you inform your tenants ahead of time that you are having the office painted so they can plan accordingly.
