Sand jet cleaning of wood

We specialise in using a low pressure sand jetting system that has been used nationwide for property restoration, including gaining approval for and subsequently working on many Listed Buildings. The system, in our trained hands, causes minimal damage to an underlying surface and is flexible enough to tackle most property restoration cleaning tasks.

The low pressure sand jet can clean bricks without injecting large quantities of water into the surface, and with minimal surface damage. At the same time, the 'wet' system also captures dirt and abrasives, preventing the health and safety risks associated with dry blasting.

However, the damp nature of the blast does mean that the abrasive and removed dirt/paint stick to surfaces - this can be washed out, or left to dry and brushed out. But we have now re-discovered that dry blasting can, if the operator is careful, be quite effective; so we now offer that service as well. It is one of those 'swings and roundabouts' things - the dry blast will be more abrasive and create lots and lots of dust, but is perhaps a little easier to clean up on the day.

Stone & Brick Cleaning: About Us

Gentle, Internal Sand Blasting

By careful control of abrasive rates and blast pressures, traditional grit blasting can be a very effective tool for internal paint stripping from woodwork.

Internal beam cleaning

It is worth noting - that underneath paint we can't in any way guarantee that the beams will be consistently clean and nice timber - there may be a reason that they were painted black in the first place.

Key benefits

  • The low pressures mean that the sand jet is gentle enough to clean delicate surfaces, yet powerful enough to strip multiple layers of paint in one pass.

  • It is not a chemical process so no noxious or harmful slurries or fumes are generated.

  • As it uses only minimal amounts of water and abrasives, the system is regularly used indoors.

  • Not as messy as other systems, the low pressures mean that secondary mess (dust being blown out of floorboards etc.) is also minimised.

  • dheres to the requirements of BS 8221-1&2 :2000 the British Standard Code of Practice for Cleaning Building Surfaces.

  • No interference with other work in the area.
