WHY CHOOSE US?

Using modern equipment and techniques RM Blast Cleaning Services can and do work in every aspect of Lead-based paint removal. We use a varied number of processes including vacuum (dust-free) blasting as well as Soda blasting and we have the capabilities to use the right equipment that’s best for the job as we are constantly upgrading our machines to make sure we have the right and best equipment for the task in hand especially where the removal of dangerous materials is concerned.

Lead is a toxic metal that can cause serious health issues but as long as the surface isn’t broken, the paint doesn’t pose a health threat. But the problem comes when the lead paint starts breaking up and it’s at this point something seems to be done about it. It can contaminate soil and all too often children can touch and subsequently ingest dangerous toxins. We are able to use our specialist systems to remove this paint safely so please get in touch as soon as possible to remove this problem from your buildings.

Abrasive blast cleaning is a process that involves using a range of abrasive media propelled by compressed air to obtain excellent cleaning and surface preparation for secondary finishing operations.

The blasting concentrates abrasive particles at high speed (65-110 m/second) through a Venturi, Boron, Tungsten or Silicon Carbide nozzle in a controlled manner at the material, thereby removing surface contaminants due to the abrasive impact. The blasting task will determine the choice of the abrasive media and the blast pressure, a wide range of abrasives of different size and hardness can be used depending on the material being removed, the type of substrate and the surface finish required.

Abrasive blasting techniques can range from “Soda Blasting” which uses a very soft abrasive on delicate surfaces to blasting with fine and medium-hard abrasives. With specialist precision equipment, the blast pressure and volume of abrasive can be regulated in order to produce the desired results whether that is gentle cleaning of architectural surfaces or blasting of steel in preparation for the application of a coating.

Blast cleaning can be carried out dry, or with a small amount of water to suppress dust and give a more gentle clean, for total dust-free operation vacuum-blasting is the answer.
