Back To School: Is Your School in Need of Commercial Painting

Monday, October 07, 2019

Summer is still in full swing, but before we know it, school will be back in session. Students might not be thinking much about coming back to school just yet, but if you’re a teacher, administrator, faculty member, or school leader, the new school year is never far from your mind. A lot of planning goes into preparing a school for a new semester and the building itself cannot be ignored in this process. If your school is looking rough around the edges, it’s time to invest in commercial painting services before the fall. Here we’ll discuss why a new coat of paint is important for your school, your staff, and your students.

Maintaining Appearances

The primary reason for a new paint job is, of course, to keep your school looking fresh, both inside and out. Those in charge of maintaining a school’s reputation and competitive edge must always consider how their school looks and feels. Parents, teachers, faculty, students, and guests should all feel welcome as they approach the building, and enjoy their time within it. If your school’s facade and/or interior is fading, peeling, or chipping away, its reputation will suffer.

Painters USA can install scuff resistant acrylic latex interior coatings in your school, which are durable, odor-free, and easy to wash and maintain. These coatings also help reduce your school’s carbon footprint, as they are LEED v4 eligible.

School Safety

Painting your school is about more than appearances, though. It’s also about maintaining a safe environment to learn, teach, and grow. Commercial painting contractors help protect schools from damage caused by water, bacteria, wind, and other environmental factors. Additionally, contractors will use different types of paint and commercial painting equipment for different safety purposes. For instance, they may use a non-slip epoxy paint or urethane cement to keep halls and gymnasiums safe to walk and run across. Ultimately, a new coat of paint makes for a healthier and safer school.

Better Learning Outcomes

Commercial painting for schools can also lead to improved student performance. Schools with outdated colors, fading paint, and unsanitary conditions can stifle education as students and teachers become distracted and distressed. On the other hand, a bright, clean atmosphere coupled with a safe and healthy environment can increase the moods of teachers and students alike, and even minimize sick days. Students are more likely to focus and retain information in a freshly painted environment.

No Better Time to Paint your School

School might not start back up for several weeks, but this gap offers the perfect opportunity to revitalize your school for the upcoming year. During the school year, it can be difficult for painters to get their work done, as they have to either work in the evening or contend with all the foot traffic that goes on during the day. If your school is in need of commercial painting, it’s best to get it done in the summer months when the halls are quiet.
