The first step to getting best results from your painting project is by preparing the surface adequately. Meaning you have to get rid of dirt, stains, and any other form of debris present on the surface.
Two of the most popular surface preparation techniques are sandblasting and power washing. However, before you consider which technique is right for you, it’s essential to verify the surface preparation standard of the paint you intend to apply.
Sandblasting and power washing both do an excellent job at cleaning off dirt, debris, contaminants and removing grease and oil stains.
However, the difference in the effectivity levels comes in this form:
- Power washing cannot properly remove existing paints off a surface, while sandblasting is well known for its absolute ability to remove paint, rust, and scales.
- Sandblasting will clean off the surface properly, leaving a smooth surface while creating a profile that allows better paint adhesion to the cleaned surface.
- And for you to use power washing to clean off existing paint, you’ll need to use an etching agent to achieve the same sandblasting results.
So, if you intend on painting a new surface, power washing will do just fine, but if the surface has an existing coating, utilize sandblasting for better results.
If you’re still not sure which surface preparation method to go with, hire the services of an expert.
