Sandblasting is the perfect solution when you need to clean something quickly and efficiently and is ideal for commercial applications. The method involves shooting small particles out of an air compressor, to clear any surface debris such as old paint or rust.

As effective as it can be there are many potential mistakes that can be involved. Not only can it be dangerous but can damage many surfaces. Below are some of the mistakes that can be made and how they can be avoided for future projects.

Using the wrong particles. 

There is a range of particles available for sandblasting; these have a variety of hardness levels and are appropriate for different types of jobs. Knowing the combination of both the type of machine and sand can be mind-numbing as it can become confusing and overwhelming.

There will be no risk of damage to your property due to the wrong particles being used.

Attempting to DIY
