Hydroblasting concrete demolition

Demolition is a necessary part of many building projects, with concrete demolition needed before any other structural work can take place. However, if done incorrectly, concrete demolition can lead to a host of unsafe conditions.

To ensure a safe environment, proper concrete cutting must take place using hydroblasting techniques. When it comes to safety and efficiency, hydroblasting stands out as the optimal solution.

What is hydoblasting concrete demolition?

Concrete deteriorates over time and eventually needs to be reapplied. However, to do that, the old concrete first needs to be cut. Among the various methods, the safest and most effective one is hydroblasting. This technique, carried out in a controlled environment, combines water, an abrasive material, and a high-pressure machine to gently remove concrete from any structure. With pressure levels ranging from 20,000 to 35,000 PSI and a water blasting capacity of up to 57 litres per minute, hydroblasting is the go-to choice for a smooth and efficient concrete demolition.

Why is concrete demolition so important?

  • It prevents structural damage. If done correctly, proper concrete cutting can keep the foundation and structural properties of the existing structure secure.
  • It’s good for the environment. Concrete demolition through hydroblasting is good for the environment. Concrete dust and debris through demolition are incredibly dangerous for the environment, as well as for anyone suffering from respiratory conditions. It can disrupt local ecosystems and the natural habitats of species. Concrete cutting helps to eliminate this through the fast and safe removal of concrete.
  • It gets everything ready for the next project. Concrete demolition through hydroblasting prepares the surface for the next project. If you’re replacing an existing structure or adding something new, the surface needs to be as clean as possible. Concrete cutting ensures that the structure is sound for future renovations and builds.
  • It saves time. The next project cannot start until the concrete demolition has been done. Through hydroblasting, this can happen much faster and more efficiently, thereby saving a lot of time to help meet deadlines.
  • It reduces risk. Concrete demolition provides a safe environment for workers, ensuring a harm-free demolition project.
