Shot blasting is a process that is normally done on concrete or metal surfaces. Steel beads are “shot” out of a machine at a very high velocity. The beads “blast” off debris and stains that are on the floor which can’t be removed through regular cleaning methods. Our method of shot blasting involves little cleanup; all of our machines have built in vacuums that collect the dust and the shot.
