Blast Cleaning Services
As time goes by, surfaces age and accumulate stubborn dirt, dust, grease, rust, and oxides that just won’t come off with a traditional cleaning method.
That’s why we’re happy to present our blast cleaning services, the most effective process to make your woodwork, stonework, and metal look as good as new by blasting the surfaces with a wide variety of abrasive media with no damage or corrosion to the surface.
Whether you’re looking to bring back the luster of an original surface or you’re doing surface preparation for a new paint coating, you can benefit from our blasting services. So read on to learn more about what we can do for you.
The Importance of Blast Cleaning Services
Is It Worth Getting Blast Professionally Cleaned?
Currently, abrasive blast cleaning is the best surface preparation, restoration, and dirt removal method available because blasting makes the surface look as good as new by cleaning off any resilient layers of schmutz.
As a bonus, the new clean surface will be able to hold new coatings for longer. So painting or coating a surface is much easier after blasting it.
To illustrate, imagine how labor-intensive it is to remove rust off metal parts or clean decades-old dirt off other materials using other techniques like sanding or wire brushing.
Besides, it would cost you at least 2-3 times as much time to sand or brush the surface as it would to blast it. That’s when assuming the manual method is being done quickly and efficiently with no slacking. And even then, the results will probably be different and not as effective and efficient as blast cleaning.
Moreover, somewhat surprisingly, blasting is even more environmentally friendly than traditional methods. Because despite methods like shot blasting and sand-blasting being very abrasive, they cause less damage than most cleaning chemicals.
Plus, many types of abrasive blasting use reusable or recyclable media, such as compressed air, plastic media, steel media, or even organic media like a walnut shell, meaning that there’s no need to dispose of any chemicals after the act.
So, in short, blasting is a vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly process than its counterparts. It also removes dirt and rust better.
Why Use Blast Cleaning Services
Time and Money Savings
Although blasting services typically cost a little more than other methods like sanding, blasting is a far more cost-effective service, especially in the long term.
Think of this – a skilled sanding technician with years of experience will cost you as much as a low-end blasting service, and the latter will probably still produce better results.
But even when you compare middle-end manual methods with middle-end blasting services, the latter still prevail. As we said above, the manual method will take at least 2-3 times as long to finish, even when done perfectly. So that’s already a ton of time saved.
Also, since blasting cleans better, your surfaces will take more time to get dirty again, so you won’t need to clean as frequently, and any new coating you apply will adhere better for longer. So blasting is a much more cost-effective process in the long term that many industries prefer for their common applications.
