The Best Way to Refresh and Maintain a Hotel or Other Hospitality Building
Posted Jul 25, 2022 by Dave Scaturro
Hotels and other businesses catering to the travel and leisure industry rely on their ability to satisfy customers. This means they must conduct regular maintenance to keep their facilities looking fresh and welcoming to visitors. Fortunately, maintenance painting is one of the most visible and cost-effective ways to enliven a building’s interior and exterior surfaces while providing many other benefits.
Seasoned building owners and facility managers know the timing of their maintenance efforts is critical and they take advantage of slower seasons to spruce up their facilities. Hotels and other hospitality businesses often see summer, the mid-winter holiday season and spring as busy peaks, which leave just a few months a year to conduct all their maintenance. The following comprehensive checklist provides efficient ways on how owners and managers can prolong the look and life of their property’s appearance.
Exterior Painting Maintenance Checklist
- Wall and Surface Painting – A building’s exterior is the first thing your guests will see, so keeping walls and surfaces looking new and clean is essential. Due to the constant exposure of your exterior walls to the elements for 365 days a year – you do not want to skimp out on this much-needed maintenance item, as it will also help provide protection to your surfaces. Make sure you get a recommendation from a professional hospitality painting contractor of the most durable exterior paint for your particular structure.
- Company Logo – Hotels and other hospitality businesses will need to have their logos and other exterior designs on their buildings refreshed along with any performed exterior wall maintenance. A professional painting company, such as Alpine Painting & Sandblasting, that specializes in hotel painting services will professionally touch up logos and other designs to make sure these do not look dated once your walls are touched up.
- Parking Lot Striping – A fresh and bright look to your property is not complete without updating lines and other painted signs in your parking lot or structure. Have this item at the top of your maintenance list, especially if the parking area is your guests’ first impression of your hospitality business.
- Roof Coating – Roof maintenance is often overlooked so make sure it makes your exterior painting maintenance list. A building’s roof plays a critical role in building maintenance as worn-out roof coatings can present a safety hazard and degrade building efficiency. A professional painting company could even recommend a solar reflective coating that would help increase your overall energy efficiency.
Interior Painting Maintenance Checklist
- Wall and Surface Painting – Fresh, clean paint on the walls and other areas show a cared-for facility, which customers notice and value. The hospitality industry relies on its structures’ visual appearance to attract business, so building upkeep is essential to remain competitive. Successful businesses have high levels of traffic which means that scuffs, scratches, and other marks are inevitable. Wear and tear that is visible to a guest translates to a deterioration of your building’s appearance. Regular painting maintenance will fix imperfections and restore interior walls with ease.
- Crack and Hole Repair – Along with wall paint color refreshing, you will want to cover up any crack or holes on your surfaces. Prior to painting any hotel rooms and other commonly used areas, plan to repair worn and damaged surfaces on the walls. To ensure even-looking coverage, these imperfections will need filling and sanding before applying the new paint.
- Wooden Surface Repainting – Wood surfaces are susceptible to cracked, faded, or peeling paint over time. Have a professional painting company repaint any wood surfaces that need attention. Such tasks do require considerable preparation in the form of scraping, sanding, etc., so let them take care of the complete job to ensure professional-looking and lasting results.
- Metal Surface Painting – Dirt and debris can accumulate on metal surfaces and contribute to the wear and tear of the metal and its protective coating. One thing you will want to avoid is metal corrosion, so make sure to keep your metal surfaces clean and maintained with regular painting so they continue to look good and last longer.
