Hi Everybody! Welcome to my blog about soda blasting, the environmentally friendly cleaning method that uses a form of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in place of other non-environmentally friendly, and health hazardous blasting medias like sand.
In my earlier postings, I explained what soda blasting is, what makes soda blasting such a unique cleaning process, some basic information on air compressors, on soda blasting equipment, and on a few popular applications. Once you understand how soda blasting works, it is much easier to appreciate why it is such an effective, safe, and eco-friendly cleaning method for many different types of jobs.
Soda blasting has become a worldwide phenomenon! I just got back from my first visit to my new dentist. He is known as someone who likes to be on the leading edge of dentistry, and is highly regarded in our local area. He actually used a dental soda blaster to clean my teeth! In addition to cleaning the teeth, he told me that it also creates a healthier environment in the mouth and gums. How cool is that?
Things have been very busy around here this year. I have had the opportunity to discuss soda blasting with literally hundreds of people from all around the world. Over the last few weeks alone, I have talked with people in Chile, Spain, Ukraine, China, South Korea, Ireland, England, South Africa, Botswana, Turkey, Poland, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Gibraltar, India, Australia, United Arab Emirates, Cyprus, Malaysia, Zimbabwe, St. Lucia, Kenya….oh well, you get the idea. People from all corners of the world want to know about soda blasting!
As more and more people look for environmentally friendly methods of conducting their business or doing a job, they are discovering the benefits of soda blasting. Whether they want to strip paint, clean up fire damage, remove graffiti, refurbish factory equipment and machinery, rebuild pumps, clean swimming pools and fountains, redo the bottom paint on their boat, clean restaurant cooking surfaces and exhaust hoods, renovate an old house, clean the backyard barbeque grill, rebuild engines, remove old stickers and decals, cleanup a moldy attic or crawlspace, or do countless other types of work, people from all around the world are turning to soda blasting!
In the first hour this morning, I have already been contacted by a company in India about soda blasting in oil field facilities, and by a woman in Canada about household uses for a soda blaster. Something’s happening here. It’s an environmentally friendly cleaning revolution!
It’s easy to become part of this new wave. One manufacturer, who builds soda blasters for companies and individuals alike, is ACE Automotive Cleaning Equipment. Don’t let the name fool you. They started out in 1976 focusing on the auto industry, but have branched out since then into every field imaginable. Good equipment, good people.
I’d like to hear from you about jobs or projects that you, or your company, may be able to do with soda blasting. Just leave me a comment and I’ll write future blogs about them.
Here’s wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving to my readers in the USA, and Best Wishes to all of you around the world. We are all put here on this planet for a short time, so let’s make the best of it and help preserve it for future generations.
