How to Battle Rust in Your Commercial Building

The word rust” is nev­er a pos­i­tive one, and at times it feels like an end­less bat­tle. The inte­ri­or and exte­ri­or met­al sur­faces of your com­mer­cial facil­i­ty are essen­tial to the struc­ture of your busi­ness. Rust is not only unsight­ly, it eats away at the integri­ty of your build­ing. If you find your­self los­ing a fight with rust, you need to know that help is just a phone call away. Here at Kaloutas, we excel at rust pre­ven­tion and have the tools and equip­ment need­ed to blast away rust and recoat your sur­faces to ensure that it doesn’t return.

Rust Removal Services

Cov­er­ing up rust with a new coat­ing is a band-aid – it doesn’t cure the prob­lem, it just masks it for a bit. Mean­while, rust con­tin­ues to spread and erode your met­al. Here at Kaloutas we don’t cov­er up rust, we remove it. Before installing fresh pro­tec­tive coat­ings, our pro­fes­sion­al painters use an arse­nal of prod­ucts and equip­ment like sponge blast­ing and sand­blast­ing ser­vices to stop rust while pro­tect­ing your struc­ture and equipment.

Pre­ven­ta­tive Coatings

Once rust is removed and con­trolled, we can apply rust encap­su­la­tion prod­ucts to pre­vent it from mak­ing a come­back. These prod­ucts con­tain rust and cor­ro­sion as well as pro­tect the integri­ty of your sur­faces. After con­tain­ment, we fol­low up with a beau­ti­ful new coat of paint, pro­tect­ing and restor­ing your exte­ri­or and inte­ri­or surfaces.
