If you have recently partnered with a commercial painting company, you might be wondering what you can do to help prepare your business and your employees for their visit. If that is the case, here are some tips to help you plan everything ahead of time –so you can make life a bit easier on yourself, your employees and customers, and your commercial painting contractors.

#1: Before the painting contractors even arrive at your property, make sure you have finalized all of your paint colors. This includes any colors that will be used for trim or other parts of your building's interior and/or exterior. While you might have already discussed colors with the commercial painting company when you initially hired them to come out and do the work, you should make sure you are all on the same page. That way, you can avoid any unforeseen surprises or mistakes.

#2: As soon as you know when the painting contractors will visit, clue in your employees on the same and let them know what to expect. Are your employees responsible for removing artwork and fragile items from their work areas? Should they park in a different area, so there is room for the contractors' vehicles and equipment? Make sure what you expect of them is clear now, so there is no confusion later.

#3: You might also, consider posting signs in clearly visible spots letting customers know that professional painters will be at your business doing work on those dates. That way, if any of your customers have a sensitivity to paint fumes or primers, they are forewarned and will know not to come to your business that day.

#4: Take a walk through the areas where the painters will be working. Are there any fragile items you should remove and put into a safe spot? What about the landscaping or hardscaping features at your commercial property? Are there any delicate flowers or plants that should be covered?

#4: If possible, make sure you designate a parking spot for the contractors and make sure that they know where they should park, so they do not accidentally take up room that is meant for customers or employees. You should also be sure that the path or sidewalk between where they will park and your commercial building is clear.

#5: Finally, call the contractors before they are scheduled to begin your project and make sure there is nothing else that can be done to help prepare for their visit. They might have other tips or suggestions for you, and there might be tasks you can do that you had not thought of or that might be unique to your property, situation, or project. It is crucial to always stay in touch with the contractors at the commercial painting company to ensure your project stays on schedule and budget. Not to mention, if they have any questions of their own, they can ask you promptly.

Final Notes

Whether you have hired professionals for commercial exterior painting, high-durability coatings, power washing, or light carpentry and repairs, with a little bit of planning and preparation, the project should run smoothly and efficiently!
