Water Blasting

Over time, any surface can and will degrade, acquire buildup of dirt or other materials, or otherwise be in need of a thorough cleaning, such as before the application of new concrete or coatings. For these applications, water blasting is an effective way to prepare, restore, or clean various types of surfaces.

Blasting in at over 30,000 PSI, this process can remove up to 1/8″ in of your existing surface, leaving it fully prepped and ready for a new coating, paint, or sealer.

Water blasting can also be used on vertical surfaces as a safer, more cost-effective alternative to shot blasting.

When is it Necessary?

Water blasting is useful for a variety of situations for concrete, asphalt, or other surfaces.

Before applying a new coating or overlay, water blasting can help prepare the surface and ensure proper adhesion. This process will remove old coatings, stains, and other buildup, creating a clean and roughened surface that will help the new materials adhere properly.

It can also repair old surfaces by removing damaged or deteriorated materials from the surface, exposing the clean surface underneath for repair or replacement.

Parking lots, parking structures or decks, driveways, sidewalks, bridges, and other structures can benefit from water blasting to remove dirt, stains, and other buildup to expose the original surface beneath. It can even remove graffiti or other vandalism, as well as provide a safer surface when removing oil, grease, or other slippery substances.

    How it Works

    Water blasting involves using high-pressure water to remove unwanted layers of debris, coatings, or surface materials from your surface.

    1. Inspection and preparation: First, we start by inspecting the surface to determine what treatment is needed and what kind of blasting should be used, depending on the your goals for your facility as well as the age and condition of your surface. Then, to prepare, we will clean loose debris from the surface, cover nearby structures, and block off areas as needed to prevent injuries or property damage.

    2. Blasting: The next step is to use a special machine to blast water onto the surface at high speeds to remove the unwanted material. Once blasting is complete, we will inspect and evaluate the surface to ensure the job is done and the surface has been properly treated.

    3. Cleaning: The final step is to clean up all debris and discarded material from the area, then perform any final inspections to complete the job.

    Now, the surface is clean and ready for its next process – or if cleaning was the goal, the surface can now be used.
