Repainting Your HOA Fitness Center Before New Year's Resolutions Start
As the current year already enters its final quarter, many HOA residents will begin thinking about revitalizing their exercise routine for the new year. Once 2021 officially comes around, fitness centers will likely experience increased traffic, making it nearly impossible to call in interior painting services to get the job done without interfering with standard operations. As the weather gets cooler, people will naturally spend less time working out outdoors and more time in the gym. Now is the best time to have your Northern California HOA fitness center repainted.
What to Know About Repainting an HOA Fitness Center
How Often Should HOA Fitness Centers Be Repainted?
Most residential and commercial interior spaces can go about 3-5 years before needing a new coat of paint. Gyms are more susceptible to wear and tear than many other kinds of interior spaces due to the increased levels of activity, humidity, heat, friction, and impact. If your Northern California HOA’s fitness center is particularly popular, it might warrant a new paint job every 2-3 years or so. As for the fitness center’s exterior, it might be able to go up to 7 years before needing a new coat. Of course, it might be more efficient to have both the interior and exterior of your Northern California HOA gym painted simultaneously.
If your Northern California HOA regularly works with a single painting provider or a handful of commercial interior painters, it’s worth getting their input regarding when it’s time to touch-up your fitness center.
HOA Painting: The Unique Timing of 2020
Most HOAs operate on a consistent painting schedule, so the entire neighborhood and all its facilities remain in sync regarding their appearances. For instance, it might be required that all home exteriors be repainted every 7 years in the summer or early fall. Shared facilities, like fitness centers, may or may not be wrapped up in this schedule. Following a regular painting schedule is key for maintaining the facility’s integrity and appearance. This timing doesn’t have to be so rigid, however.
This year, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities have been temporarily shut down for public health reasons. While these closures have been inconvenient at best, they have created a prime opportunity for businesses and HOAs to repair, renovate, and paint their facilities without interference. If your HOA fitness center could use a new coat of paint within the next year or so, now might be the perfect time to hire reliable local interior painters. Whether or not your fitness center can reopen in 2021 to meet your residents’ new year’s resolutions remains to be seen.
What Fitness Center Painting Entails
Before hiring a painting provider to update your HOA fitness center, it helps to know what the job entails. Repainting the inside of a gym is not exactly the same as repainting a living room. Interior painting companies might take into account the unique conditions of fitness centers as well as the health and safety of all users. Some areas of consideration include:
- Using low- or no-VOC paint for all areas, including locker rooms and restrooms
- Using moisture-resistant paint to combat high humidity levels, mold, mildew, etc.
- Sealing floors with epoxy/non-slip coatings to reduce tripping hazards
- Line/safety striping to visually separate areas for safe navigation and distancing
- Choosing paint colors that boost mood and energy levels and don’t irritate one’s eyes
What Will the New Year Bring?
It has been an uncertain year, and 2021 may follow the same trend. Whether or not your HOA’s fitness center gets the green light to reopen soon, there hasn’t been a better time to invest in a new coat of paint.
