Cleaning Floors With High Pressure Water Jetting

A Grand Rapids, MI based epoxy flooring company
 

Water jetting is a recent innovation in cleaning concrete floors. Water jetting units generally use an engine-driven, piston pump to develop pressures of 15,000 to 25,000 psi. The blasting is accomplished by hand-held wands or lances, and by units that have 2 nozzles attached to a rotating bar. The rotary unit, which looks something like a lawn mower, is used to create a more uniform surface finish.

Water Jetting Pros:

  • Water jetting has the advantage of controlling dust in the cleaning process.

Water Jetting Cons:

  • While waterjetting can create an effective profile and remove coatings, it is difficult to control the profile because the high pressure water can be very aggressive.
  • There is also the issue of water exposure and standing water cleanup as well as the need for dry time of the concrete surface and or the use of moisture tolerant primers.
