Commercial Painting: Restaurants, Cafeterias, Food Service !
Commercial Painting: Restaurants, Cafeterias, Food Service
In a metro region like San Francisco, there is a nearly limitless variety of businesses, which gives commercial painting a nearly endless variety in our work! Among the clients we serve, painting restaurants and food service areas can create some interesting dynamics and challenges. For example, these photos come from a commercial painting project we recently finished in Oakland, California.
Painting food service facilities extends well beyond restaurants:
- Hospital kitchens and cafeterias
- Nursing home dining areas
- Coffee shops and delis
- Corporate office cafeterias
- Catering kitchens
- Hotels and conference centers
- School and university cafeterias
- Food production facilities (factories)
Special Considerations when Painting Food Service Areas
One of the most important factors to take into account when we paint a restaurant, commercial kitchen, or a cafeteria is avoidance of food contamination. During our preparation stage, we need to thoroughly seal off our work area to avoid dust, paint, or chemicals getting onto food preparation surfaces. Also, we need to be painstaking in our cleanup phase once the painting is done, so that all food processing is safe and healthy.
Another key feature in areas where food is prepared or served is the odor. Nobody wants to be smelling (or tasting) fresh paint as they eat. That is why we are careful to use ultra low-odor paints with zero VOC’s, meaning the only smell will be your delicious food!
Finally, our scheduling needs to coordinate seamlessly with your operational schedule as much as possible. After all, nobody wants to miss a meal! That’s why our commercial painting crews are prepared to work nights, weekends, holidays, or whenever it works best for you, so that your downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
Coordinating with Multiple Trades
When a food service area is experiencing a variety of renovations at once, it can seem like a crazy dance! All the tradespeople need to function in the same space, including plumbers, electricians, commercial painters, carpenters, and more, and every step needs to be completed in the right order.
MB Jessee is very experienced with this dance, and we deftly orchestrate our services so that we are not stepping on the toes of the other tradespeople!
Another way in which we can help this dance go smoothly is with our commercial carpentry division. When the carpenters and the painters all work for the same company, the coordination is much smoother and the job management is far simpler.
