Learn Why You Need a Professional Ecoblaster, Projects that Require a Professional Ecoblaster (like rusty equipment or surface prep), and the Importance of a Licensed and Insured Professional
When you have a piece of equipment that’s rusting out or you need to prep a surface for painting/powder coating, you need to call in a professional ecoblaster. Dustless blasting, aka ecoblasting, needs to be used anytime you have a large surface area, small moving parts, tight spaces, or are dealing with potentially hazardous materials that need to “cleaned.”
Why You Need a Professional Ecoblaster
A professional can not only save you time and money, but they know exactly what media to use for your project. Sometimes, when you DIY, you can ruin your project because you lack the skill to control the blasting process. This could cost you extra money and huge headaches in the long run. If you want a project done right and done quickly with little mess, you need a professional ecoblaster.
Is Blasting the Best Method for Your Project?
Ecoblasting is great for a wide variety of projects. Very rarely are you dealing with one type of surface and that’s when it’s good to have a professional on the job. It takes an experienced media blaster to know what sand grit and nozzle are needed to do a project without damaging the surface. Often, DIY projects take more time and patience than you really want, so calling in the pros can take the burden off of you.
Projects that Require a Professional Ecoblaster
Large projects that require a lot of elbow grease can be done with ecoblasting. Here are some examples:
🔺 Preparing surfaces for auto restoration
🔺 Preparing surfaces for painting
🔺 Cleaning grime on machine parts
🔺 Removing graffiti from most surfaces
🔺 Removing rust and oxidation from machinery or other objects
🔺 Removing marine growth on boats

Is it Important to Use a Licensed, Bonded, and Insured Contractor?
A properly licensed and insured contractor will always be the safest choice. You don’t want to pay out-of-pocket if something does go wrong. You may find uninsured contractors charge much less, however, you’ll wind up paying a pro to repair a failed project. Get the pros with AMS to get the job done right.
Always confirm with your contractor whether their liability insurance covers your investment in the case of a catastrophic accident. Also, you should always go online and confirm that the license and insurance are current.
