First invented in the 1800s, sandblasting is a proven method to remove dirt, grease, old paint, rust and other contaminants from almost any type of hard surface including metal, asphalt, concrete, brick and block. This is the fastest, easiest and most effective way to restore durable materials to their original condition or prep for a fresh coat of paint to ensure proper adhesion.
In theory, sandblasting is fairly simple. An air compressor pushes pressurized air through a holding tank to force sand or other abrasive material through a hose at a high rate of speed. When the sandblaster is ready, he points the gun towards the surface to be cleaned and pulls the trigger. As the sand hits the structure, you can literally see the surface transform from smooth to etched or from dirty to clean.
In practice, sandblasting is complicated. The pressure must be precisely controlled to completely clean the surface without damage or overspray, and inhaling abrasive material can lead to serious health problems or even death. If all safety concerns aren’t addressed properly, the consequences can be serious.
