  How to Paint an Occupied Apartment or Hotel
A fully occupied apartment building and a booked hotel is almost always good news for the landlord or property owner, however upkeep can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. Painting walls and resurfacing floors in both the common areas and individual units is essential in maintaining property values, but it can get a little tricky working around your tenants' calendars. You'll need to take individual schedules into consideration, be aware of legal considerations, and try to complete the job as quickly as possible.

It's a good idea to hire a painting contractor who has experience painting apartments and hotels. Common use areas such as the lobby, exercise room, laundry room, halls, walls and exterior entrance usually experience a lot of wear and tear. Since refinishing projects are often disruptive, consider working on one common area at a time. Ask your contractor for paint recommendations about specialty products such as anti-graffiti paints and mildew resistant surface treatments. Picking the right paint for the laundry room or public bathroom often results in better results and longer periods between paint jobs.

It's obviously best to paint apartments when they are vacant, but sometimes long-term tenants request a fresh coat of paint. Many landlords will ask tenants to work directly with the contractor to minimize scheduling conflicts. It's important to protect yourself against any legal allegations from the tenant about property damage or theft during the painting, so make sure to check to see if your contractor is licensed and insured.

Although shades of white are still the most popular choice for apartments, tenants sometimes request to choose their own colors. Since very dark or unique colors may be difficult to paint over when the property become vacant again, you might want to specify only light colors or offer tenants a limited choice of colors.
