Institutional and commercial facilities feature a vast array of interior and exterior surfaces that require paints and coatings to maximize their protection and appearance, according to an article from Facilities Maintenance Decisions on the FacilitiesNet website.
Managers who understand the importance of ensuring that workers perform effective surface preparation are more likely to produce successful applications that deliver long-term performance.
In performing surface preparation, workers must remove materials that can impair the ability of paints and coatings to properly adhere to the surface. These materials can include old coatings, contaminants, residue, and organic or biological growth.
Despite the importance of surface preparation, workers with heavy workloads and small work windows can overlook the process. Unfortunately, applications that take place with little or no surface preparation are likely to require more attention sooner rather than later.“
