Thankfully, this is fairly easy if you take the time to maintain the paint booth. Here are a few tips to help you keep your paint booth clean.

Make Sure That the Paint Booth Is Protected from Overspray

Paint booths are very expensive, so it is important to protect them from overspray. Overspray is a big problem for most paint booth, as excess paint can easily build up on the booth’s lights, floor and walls as time goes on. You can avoid this by installing a peelable paint booth coating to make sure that the interior is completely protected from paint. These coatings are very easy to install and remove, and they are very affordable. They also protect the source of light inside the booth, so you don’t have to worry about visibility problems in the future.

Use a Quality Filter

A paint booth filter will help to prevent overspray from landing in the surrounding area, which is very useful if your paint booth is near to expensive items (such as other pieces of equipment or cars). For this reason you should make sure that you invest in a quality filter; it can be tempting to go for a cheaper option, but this can result in a build-up over time that damages your paint booth. So make sure that you choose a high-quality filter that will help to protect your paint booth for years to come.

Maintain the Air Make-up Unit Properly

The paint booth will have a manual air make-up guide that will tell you how to maintain the unit properly and make sure that it is completely sealed (and if you can’t find the manual, see if you can find a copy online). This is very important, because if paint or dust gets inside the unit, the machine may stop working properly and could be expensive to repair.
