We were contacted by one of our clients Dufaylite in St Neots and asked to carry out further work on their behalf. We have previously painted the outside of their offices and factory plus we carry out regular cleaning of their guttering, on this occasion they wanted to utilise our decorating services once again and needed the internal walls and metal pillars painting of the main factory building.
High Level Cleaning
Being a factory the walls and metal girders were covered in cobwebs, dust and grease which needed cleaning prior to decorating. We carried out high level cleaning using our Skyvac gutter cleaning system utilising special attachments which allows us to remove dust and cobwebs from pipes, girders walls and ceilings etc. Once this work was carried out we then removed further dirt and grease using a Zinseer Degreaser which cuts through dirt and grease with ease, this was then rinsed off allowed to dry in readiness for painting.
Painting and Decorating
Those walls that were bare brickwork we painted with a masonry white base coat. Due to the nature of the stains, marks and the environment of the factory we used a solvent based paint that acted as a primer, sealer and finish top coat all in one, this would save time but more importantly the client money. We chose to use a Zinseer Allcoat all in One not only for the brick work but the metal girders to, this product will adhere to most things and the surfaces don’t require sanding or keying excessively either. The brickwork bays were given a minimum of two coats in white, we used a light battleship grey for the main metal girders using extension poles or scissor lift where required.
