Fewer facilities require as much maintenance and upkeep as a food processing plant. Because these facilities prepare and distribute food and drink, they must remain compliant with certain standards set forth by federal, state, and local governments. The professional painting contractors at Lakeside Painting can help your food processing plant stay up to code. Here’s how.

Machinery Painting

One of the services that our professional painters offer is machinery painting. Our preferred method when painting metal machines is electrostatic spray painting. Electrical currents and magnetism play an integral part in electrostatic painting. Here’s how it works: a negative electrode is attached to the desired surface, giving the surface a negative charge. Then, a positively-charged paint gun is used to spray positively charged paint at the negatively-charged surface. The opposing pull results in a magnetic attraction wherein the paint is literally pulled onto the surface. In addition to reduced overspray, the like charges of the paint cause the particles on the surface to repel, resulting in an even coverage.

Flooring  

Here at Lakeside, we offer our customers a number of high performance floor coatings that can make their floors look better and last longer. Cementitious urethane floor systems are the best option for food processing plants. Cementitious urethane floors are heat and chemical resistant as well as non-porous. This is crucial because floors in the food industry need to be cleaned regularly with steam and harsh chemicals to prevent bacteria from accumulating. Furthermore, this type of flooring does not have seams, meaning that moisture leading to mold and mildew cannot penetrate beneath the floors. Finally, cementitious urethane does not crack, and it is abrasion and slip-resistant, easy to clean and maintain, and USDA, FDA, and OSHA-compliant.

Abrasive Cleaning Services

Cleaning is essential for maintaining a safe and bacteria-free environment. Here at Lakeside, we offer several abrasive blasting services that can help your machinery and equipment continue operating at optimal capacity. Some of our services include CO2 dry ice blasting, sponge blasting, and high-power washing. If you’re not sure which method would be best for your particular needs, give us a call, and our professionals will advise you.

Interior and Exterior Painting

Finally, we wouldn’t be called Lakeside Painting if we didn’t paint. Not only does paint add aesthetic appeal to the inside and outside of your building, but it also protects your structures from the elements.

We offer several exterior painting services as well as interior painting. Our professionals clean, paint, and repair concrete block exterior walls. If you want to fireproof your building (which might be a good idea in a food processing plant), we are also skilled in the application of intumescent and fire-retardant paint. If you need safety line striping, look no further. We practically offer it all.

If your food processing plant is in need of some touch-ups or if you’re just getting started and want to ensure that you receive only quality service, reach out to us.
