Four Signs You Need To Sandblast Your Surfaces

Posted on

Sandblasting is a great way to clean and restore surfaces. The process uses high-pressure air or sand to blast away dirt and other materials from the surface of an object. When done correctly, sandblasting can take away rust and paint, leaving behind a clean, smooth surface that's ready for painting or sealing.

Here are four signs you need to sandblast your surfaces:

1. You Have A Lot Of Rust On Your Objects

Sandblasting can remove rust from metal surfaces like cars, trucks, and trailers. If there's too much rust buildup on your vehicle, it may be time to consider sandblasting as part of your restoration project. Sandblasting will also remove rust from concrete floors and sidewalks, as well as other hard surfaces in your home or business.

2. You Have Chipped Paint On Your Walls Or Furniture Pieces

Another common use for sandblasting is removing paint from walls and furniture pieces so you can repaint them without having to strip off all the paint by hand with chemicals or scraping it off with an electric sander or scraper blade tool. This process can be time-consuming if you don't know what you're doing and takes skill to avoid damaging important parts of the item being painted over again with the wrong method.

3. There Are Stains On The Walls

People often turn their backs on stains on their walls believing that they can just paint over them. Unfortunately, stains on walls tend to be stubborn and can be difficult to remove without professional help. Sandblasting is one option that can help remove these types of stains by exposing them to high-pressure streams of sand particles which will blast away the stain leaving behind a clean surface that can be painted over easily once again.

4. There Is Over-Spray

If you have ever painted a surface, then you know how hard it can be to get rid of all the little drips and splatters around your home. If some of these drips are still visible after several days or weeks, then it may be time to sandblast your surfaces. Sandblasting will remove any over-spray so that you have a cleaner finish on your surfaces.

If you are considering whether you should sandblast your surfaces, there are a few things to look out for. If any of these above signs apply to your project, it may be time to consider sandblasting. Chat with a professional today.
