We started the week sending out two mobile crews to Wichita, Kansas to work all week on a Fire Restoration job. The job called for Dry Ice cleaning to remove soot and char covering over 20,000 square feet. We utilized Dry Ice on this job to keep the dust level to a minimum and not have any secondary media waste other than the removed soot and char. This job was completed on Friday on schedule with our two crews working Monday thru Friday this week.
Monday morning we got a call for a rush job in Downtown Kansas for the parking garage at 10th Street and Central to remove a graffiti tag. We dispatched a mobile crew that morning to clean off the graffiti tag. To clean off the graffiti we used our standard graffiti removal process utilizing our Baking Soda media. After our crew finished that small mobile job, they returned to the shop and did a small shop blasting job. This customer needed a profile on some small steel fitting but did not want to remove the sheen to the pieces. The customer had previously used glass bead and was still having trouble with the bead removing the sheen shine. We utilized our walnut shell media with low pressure to profile the surface without removing the shine surface. The shop job was quick and fell under our shop minimum for up to an hour of blasting.
On Tuesday, we sent a mobile crew to the Comfort Inn in Lenexa, Kansas to perform a brush blast to remove all flaking and failing paint on the indoor pool. We utlized our traditional River Sand media to remove the existing pool coating with our brush blast process in order to only remove the loose paint and not the entire painted surface.
We sent out one mobile crew to perform two small jobs on Wednesday. The first job involved our Fire Restoration process on a house in Raytown, Missouri. The job called for the removal of soot and char from the chimney to the house. We again utilized our Baking Soda media under our Fire Restoration process to remove those contaminants. The second job invovled removing a burned plastic planter from the walkway to a house in Kansas City, MO. Unlike our Fire Restoration process, this job required the used of our Crushed Glass (Brite Blast) media to remove the surface burn. We cleaned the entire walkway section where the burn occurred to create a uniform look.
At the shop Wednesday, we blasted a small housing part for a repeat customer. This job was to remove all paint to this housing because the customer was to nickel plate the piece after our blast. The job was completed under our shop minimum for up to an hour of blasting and the customer was able to drop off Tuesday and pick up Wednesday afternoon. We strive to meet our customer’s deadlines and get their pieces cleaned to optimum efficiency as with this small job.
Thursday we had a shop job cleaned paint off two brass structural pieces for the Kansas City Police Station Restoration Project. The pieces were part of the North and South light fixtures for the station. We had previously done small brass pieces at our shop, while also cleaning areas at the Police Station location. For this job we used our Baking Soda media to remove the paint top coat and primer down to the shiny Brass structure without leaving a large profile.
Friday we sent out two mobile crews to complete a job at a local Kansas City Aggregate Plant. Our job entailed dry ice cleaning the electrical equipment and mechanical tub. The job was completed Friday as scheduled. Our other two mobile crews in Wichita returned late Friday afternoon after completing the Fire Restoration job this week.
That concludes our many different jobs for the week. As always, thanks for looking at our blog and enjoy the weekend! Next weekend is Christmas!
