The Many Benefits of Sandblasting
There are many benefits to sandblasting surfaces. As industry specialists, we know how valuable this service can be to our clients. We’d like to share some of the known benefits with you now.
- Quick and easy cleanup. When we say quick and easy cleanup, we mean both the cleaning of the surface and the cleaning of the project space afterwards. Sandblasting provides a quick way to clean contaminants hard surfaces like metal. When it might take double or triple the amount of time if you were to clean it another way. After the sandblasting, cleaning up after the service is easy because the practice typically calls for laying down equipment to protect surrounding areas from the sand. This makes project clean-up a breeze!
- Great surface preparation. Along with cleaning surfaces, sandblasting also provides a great way to prepare surfaces for various coatings and sealants. The sandblasting gets all dirt and contaminants off of the surface so the coatings will adhere better. As an added bonus, the film left after the sandblasting prevents the rust that occurs after metal is exposed to the air.
- Environmentally friendly and non-toxic. One of the greatest benefits of sandblasting is that it is usually both environmentally friendly and non-toxic. Unless outside pollutants are added to the sandblasting equipment, it remains harmless to the environment. It is also non-toxic for those around the sandblasting! The typical products used in sandblasting have been proven to be safe if inhaled, unlike most coatings and cleaning products.
