Painting and Decorating Made Easier!

“First impressions” are so important. Everything that the guest sees is a potential priority.

 

The engineering department knows this. And it is the painter’s responsibility and goal to achieve the highest level of aesthetics he or she possibly can.

 

PRIORITY 1: STRUCTURAL APPEARANCE AND CONDITION, TOGETHER.

 

The hotel painter wants and needs to ensure that all paintable surfaces are in good repair. No holes, no cracks, no rotting and/or splintered wood.

 

A hotel is constructed of drywall, plaster, acoustical elements, wood products, masonry, metals and glass. When one or more of them become damaged, exhibit wear or deteriorate from exposure to the environment, the surfaces need to be repaired, or replaced.

 

PRIORITY 2: WELL-ORGANIZED PAINTING MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE.

 

The hotel painter wants and needs to have a plan for taking care of basic painting around the property. And, he or she has to be able to follow that plan on a regular basis. At his or her discretion.

 

Below is one example of a painting maintenance schedule, adaptable to any hotel or resort.

 

  1. Hotel’s entrance: Clean (pressure wash), then touch up or full paint wall surfaces.

 

  1. Lobby areas and restrooms: Clean, then touch up or full paint, repair wall covering of walls.

 

  1. Guest rooms: Touch up or full paint all surfaces inside.

 

  1. Exterior of guest rooms: Clean, then touch up or full paint wall areas adjacent.

 

  1. Interior ceilings: Clean, then touch up or full paint.

 

  1. Exterior walls and ceilings: Clean (pressure wash), then touch up or full paint.

 

  1. Parking lot areas: Paint as needed.

 

PRIORITY 3: SPECIAL PROJECTS.

 

The hotel painter needs, sometimes, to focus on an area that needs special attention, or renovation. In these cases, his or her priority is transferred to the immediate goal at hand.

 

When this occurs, planning becomes paramount for the painter and the others of the engineering department.

 

Working closely with management is essential for the overall success of every project – structural, scheduled, or special.

 

Always, it is the team effort, commitment, and bond that allows the priorities to be completed effectively.

 

Remember, we all have concerns and priorities. And, we have to juggle them, the best that we can, as part of our daily routine.

 

Let’s do it together.

Keeping a hotel looking great, and in good condition, is an all-team members/all-staff priority!
