Miami-Dade Painting Services Business Shares Ideas Regarding How to Hire House Painters During COVID
Florida Painting Company reflects on how much has changed since pandemic altered economy, mental health, jobs, family lives and ability to obtain contractors.
Florida Painting Company, a full-service painting and drywall business based in the Miami-Dade area offering everything from apartment painting and house painting to interior painting, exterior painting and commercial/residential painting, has been sharing ideas regarding how to hire a house painter during COVID-19, presenting an opportunity for the staff to reflect on how much has changed since the pandemic altered the economy, mental health, jobs, family lives and the ability to obtain contractors.
“Now that many states have eased restrictions a bit and companies are resuming services, homeowners are in a position to start hiring for help around the house again,” states Sebastian Bednarski, owner of FPC. “We have been stressing that understanding the extra precautions a painter should take will help them hire the right company for the job.”

At the top of FPC’s list of suggestions for hiring a paint specialist during the ongoing pandemic is contact-free quoting, with company representatives citing how, in the pre-COVID days, most contractors would come to the home to provide a quote; since limiting contact is an important way to help stop the spread of the virus, many companies are turning to this method.
“Like contact-free paying, where an app such as Apple Pay or Venmo would be used, contact-free quoting allows a homeowner to enter their contact information along with the particulars of the job and the date they want the service,” adds Bednarski. “The company may call for more information, but at the end of the process, the homeowner winds up with a quote – and nobody ever had to come out to the house to provide it.”
Virtual color consultations has become another big trend during this contact-free period, with Florida Painting reps referring to online color tools that allow the homeowner to upload a photo of a room and virtually try on paint colors. According to experts like Bednarski, paint consultants are using these online tools to guide customers through the paint selection process in 2021.
“Instead of guessing at a color off a tiny color chip or uploading a room photo and trying out colors until decision paralysis sets in, a consultant will expertly use the tool to discern the right paint color for the customer – while showing him or her exactly what it will look like on the walls,” explains Bednarski.
As services resume, paint companies should have a special safety protocol in place, in addition to the standard safety practices, as this will help mitigate risk for painters, clients and communities. To this end, FPC reps have been explaining exactly what this protocol encompasses, from asking if anyone at the location is sick or has tested positive for COVID to requiring contractors to stay home if they’re sick, wearing CDC-approved face coverings and observing social distancing.
Beyond these, Bednarski and the FPC staff have been stressing the importance of all employees wearing a CDC-approved face covering, whether it’s a cloth tied over the face – such as a scarf or bandana – a cloth face mask, an N-95 mask or face shield. Further, all crews should provide social distancing guidelines for both customers and contractors, and the crews should adhere to these safety requirements before, during and after the project.
