Early this year, we were brought in on a large Historical Renovation Media Blasting project in Overland Park, Kansas. Some may recognize the property as the old King Louie Bowling Alley and Ice Rink building.
The project required all the wood surfaces to be brought back to the original state. To achieve that result, we media blasted the wood surfaces to remove the existing paint and sealer. The project also required a mock up or demo area to blast first to make sure we could achieve the correct restored appearance, desired outcome for our customer.
The mock up also measured our actual production, cleaning rate compared to the production needed to fit within the project timeline. To accommodate the project deadline, we mobilized multiple crews to provide up to three blasters at a time to expedite the renovation process. In terms of size, the project was over 40,000 square feet in area to be blasted and cleaned. The project area was sealed off and large fans were installed to control the air flow. Air flow control is important when dry blasting to keep dust from contaminating and migrating to other areas of the property.
This Historical Renovation Media Blasting project was successful in removing the paint and sealer from all the interior wood structures to restore the original wood surface. Multiple boom lifts were used to access all areas of the ceiling to remove the paint and sealer. Our success in this project lead to a project addition for exterior blasting at the same property. If you or someone you know has a large scale historical renovation or remodeling project needing paint, sealer removal give us a call we can help at Blast It Clean. Thank you for reading our blog.
