Whether you're getting rid of an existing concrete coating or thinking about adding a new one. Shot blasting is the number one choice for concrete floor preparation. The reason for this is simple: shot blasting is fast, accurate, clean, and the least expensive way to prep your concrete floors.
Shot blasting is the preferred treatment for surface preparation because of its ability to shave off a micro fine layer of concrete without compromising the rest of the concrete surface. Furthermore, since shot blasting is a dustless process, there is absolutely no mess to clean up. The concrete floor is literally ready for paint the same day it is blasted.
At Empire we only use state of the art equipment and have done so for many years. We are the leading contractor in the floor prep industry and we have designed and created innovative, new techniques to achieve top results. This is why customers like Costco, Amazon, Coca Cola, Chrysler and hundreds of other top corporations trust Empire with all of their floor prep and coating systems.
Not only does Empire offer shot blasting services, but we also offer floor cleaning and scrubbing as well. Not all of our customers are looking for the five year guarantee that blasting can provide. Blasting does scar concrete and once done it is irreversible.
If our customer is leasing a warehouse they may not have the option for blasting their concrete and need a temporary solution. Thinking about testing out a new pattern in the warehouse? Scrubbing and coating is a good way to do a test run before making that change permanent. Scrubbing and coating can last up to two or three years and in many cases with the added benefit of being much easier to remove if and when it's needed. Not all projects are the same so please get with one of our knowledgeable estimators to learn about your concrete floor prep options.
Our cleaning equipment includes ride-on scrubbers for the most strenuous jobs, wheel-mounted power- washing equipment, and good old fashioned manual soft mops, shop mops and hand brooms . In most situations, dust and dirt can easily and affordably be removed from your warehouse no matter what size. Also, if you happen to have grease or oil stains, these can be treated as well.
Empire is an environmentally sensitive company; we offer a full line of environmentally safe cleaning products and services. All water used during the concrete surface cleaning process is treated after each of our concrete scrubbing and concrete washing projects. We use a water reclamation system which we feel is pretty important; we take dirty contaminated water and we truck it to a local water treatment facility.
Our concrete cleaning services also includes concrete paint removal. You may have had several types of painted or coated surfaces that have since started to fail, or are just no longer needed, such as safety lines, warehouse striping, or floor coatings.
Allow our crews to come out to your warehouse and give you that clean and usable surface. We do this by utilizing our knowledge, tools, and services made specifically for the purpose of removing these paints, sealers, and adhesives. From shot blasters, grinders and scarifiers, to ride-on scrubbers, sweepers, and chemicals, we have the right tools and the experience to get your concrete cleaning projects done.
