Paint Splatter? OH NO!

Paint Splatter All geared up in PPE, ready to remove paint!

Why choose SERVPRO of South Kenosha County?

We aren’t your typical Joes, we’re better! Handling anything that comes across the phone.

Well, we are more than just your average water, fire, and mold mitigators. This week we took on a project many wouldn’t think to call about. A homeowner called in and was looking to get paint splatters removed off a neighboring fence. This is a unique kind of call, but it is something that we can take care of. The proper removal of the paint is done by Soda Blasting! This is an abrasive blasting method used with Sodium Bicarbonate, otherwise known as Baking Soda!! The baking soda is applied at a high pressure to the surface of the material, in this case the fence. Due to the fence being stained wood, the finish did come off. This was established before we started the project. The homeowner is just excited to have his fence without white paint splatters. He is going to finalize the project by restaining the fence when he has time!

A huge positive about soda blasting is that it’s environmentally friendly and biodegradable. It is also non-toxic and water soluble. As you can see in the photo, there is a garden bed right below the fence. Happy to inform the customer that this will not damage their flowers, as it will not build up in the soil! This method can remove grease and paint up to 15 times quicker than industrial hydro-blasting.

As it is no surprise to me, at the end of it all the homeowner was extremely pleased with the final product. So appreciative of our crew rocking this job.

If you ever come across a situation like this, give us a call!    262-332-7044
