abrasive medium at whatever you are trying to clean using compressed air to transport the abrasive. – Sandblasting is only one way of cleaning certain items and we have expanded our services into other fields in order to offer our customers a wider range of cleaning alternatives – These include gentler systems to enable us to work within the conservation field for organisations such as ‘English Heritage’ & ‘The National Trust’. These other systems include a Superheated water based system (DoFF or ThemaTech) as approved by most Listed Building Departments of most Councils and a Low Pressure Hodge Clemco SandBlasting system (similar to the approved JoSS TORC machine) We can use these systems to clean stone where a gentler cleaning method is required – please have a look at our other site http://www.abbeybcservices.co.uk

These new operating systems allow us to offer such services as Graffiti Removal from soft limestones that won’t destroy the face of the stonework.

Sandblasting is one of the best methods of cleaning many types of different surfaces – including wood, stone, metals etc. Using solid particles, which are forced onto surfaces at high speed in a stream of compressed air extraordinary results can be achieved. Using this method, nearly everything can be cleaned, including many difficult to get to areas. Care must always be taken so as not to destroy the material being cleaned and to do this the operator must ensure he uses the correct abrasive (not too hard and not too soft – there are many differing types on the market!) at the correct pressure. Too high a pressure will damage the substrate  – too low a pressure will make the job last too long and therefore cost more!

Abbey Blast Cleaning Services can sandblast (blast clean) the exterior of houses, walls, offices architectural sandblasting, to refresh/rejuvenate their appearance – or to remopve unsightly weathered paint.
