Here at Carolinas Eco Blasting, we have over 15 years of experience in the pressure washing and paint removal industry. In that time, we have consistently found that many people don’t fully understand whether paint removal is really necessary. If you aren’t sure whether it’s worth it to invest in professional paint removal services for your project, we encourage you to read on to find out more about this process and how it will benefit your overall results.
- It Increases Safety- One reason to not just add a new layer of paint to what’s already there is that old paint can pose a serious health hazard. Most (if not all) paint manufactured before 1978 contains lead, which we now know to be extremely toxic. If your building was constructed before then, we at Carolinas Eco Blasting encourage you to take the necessary steps to make it safe for everyone and invest in the professional paint removal services to get the contaminated pigments out of your space and start fresh.
- It Improves Quality- Even if there is absolutely no chance that your building has lead paint anywhere in it, or had it at any point, it’s still a good idea to have your old paint removed before applying a new coat. This is because, in our experience here at Carolinas Eco Blasting, a lot of paint is applied sloppily, or it doesn’t hold up well over time, and painting directly over it will leave you with sub-par results. We want to help you get the clean, beautiful results you deserve, so we encourage you to enlist our team for paint removal services that will help make that possible.
