About this pro
The thing liked most about the job encompasses many different aspects of the job. We love when we complete a job exceeding customers' expectations. We love making our customers happy. We love getting that finished product after cleaning paint off a brick wall and restoring it back to the original brick finish, or removing graffiti from bridges and underpasses around the city. Nothing feels better than driving by a large overpass on a bridge and seeing the section we removed graffiti. We love holding the blast nozzle and watching the gunk and grim just wipe away on the surface area that is being cleaned. Most importantly is our customers and ensuring their happiness with the job we perform, which is how we have sustained our success and business for over 10 years.

- What types of customers have you worked with?We commonly do graffiti removal around the city, while also working in industrial plants to remove grim, mildew, paint, etc. Typically, we complete a large number of Fire Restoration jobs where we remove the soot from a damaged surface, usually brick or wood, and restore is back to the original finish. Often jobs we complete in industrial plants involve using a media that does not leave any residue behind, which is where we often utilize our dry ice cleaning methods. In terms of shop blasting we generally get a lot of machine parts, bare car frames, metal beams, and in those situations we are most often removing rust and paint from the surface and getting down to bare metal.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Customer should know the dimensions of the item or space to be cleaned. Be able to answer questions such as: What kind of finish are you looking for? Are there any pieces we need to shield to protect from blasting? Where is the item located (address, position on property north, south, etc)? Why are you having the item or space cleaned (prep for paint, rust removal, graffiti removal, etc)? Are you wanting to bring the piece to the shop location to blast or is it a mobile job? What kind of access will the blaster be able to achieve given the item or space location (to determine if area is a confine space, if lights are needed, etc)? If a mobile job, how far will the crew have to park from the location of the item (to determine how much equipment to bring, blast hoses, etc)?
