Abrasive blasting wood is a common practice. Often, organic sandblasting media, such as walnut shells or corn cobs may be used. Sodium bicarbonate (soda blasting) or recycled glass may also be used as an abrasive. Using softer abrasives with different nozzles and pressure allow sandblasting contractors to restore wood without causing etching or damage.
Sandblasting wood is quite common in cleaning up smoke damage, mold remediation, or stripping staining or paint in preparation for new coatings. Other applications for abrasive blasting wood include restaining decks and patios, cleaning siding, antique wood restoration, cabinet stripping, removing contaminants from wooden beams and interior roofing.
Dustless sandblasting is a gentle, eco-friendly way to remove failed stain from decking,cracking paint from house siding, or cleaning up mold or smoke damage.
