Industrial and commercial buildings like warehouses, factories, food and energy facilities, and many others often feature exposed industrial structural ceilings and walls. For such businesses it’s vitally important to renew and preserve these exposed structural elements. 

The goal should be to make the exposed structural steel ceilings and walls look great while protecting them from dirt, grime, mold, and other contaminants. Here is everything you need to know about painting Industrial Structural Ceilings and Walls.

Cleaning and preparing exposed structural ceilings and walls

Prior to cleaning, it’s important to create containment areas for easy and efficient debris disposal. This also ensures that debris doesn’t make its way into other parts of industrial facilities. 

Before applying new paint to these surfaces, they should be cleaned. This means removing dirt, grease, mold, mildew and other other contaminants. Lakeside Painting cleans through a variety of techniques that include Vapor Blasting, Dry-Ice Blasting, Sponge Blasting, as well as Cold Water & High Pressure Cleaning.

Some buildings like food and beverage industry facilities will also need to be disinfected. For these customers, Lakeside Painting offers Industrial Cleaning Services.

After cleaning, the old layer of paint should be removed from ceilings and walls. Any imperfections should then be patched. Then it’s time to get painting!

Painting industrial structural ceilings and walls

There are a number of ways to paint exposed industrial ceilings and walls. Lakeside Painting often uses a technique called Dry-Fall Painting. 

With Dry-Fall paints or coatings, any droplets or overspray dry rapidly into something like dust, making it easy and efficient to clean up. This makes it an ideal solution for industrial facilities.
