How To Strip Paint From A Commercial Building – McCahill Painting Company 

McCahill Painting Company is in the beginning phase of stripping an entire commercial precast building. The issue with this building is that the previous painting contractor did not clean the precast prior to painting it. The most important part of a painting project is the preparation. Even if it new construction, it must be pressure washed to remove dirt, dust, etc… If this is not done, the paint cannot properly adhere to the surface causing an eventual failure.

The pressure washer is a 3000 psi, 500 gallon tow behind unit capable of cleaning with 250 degree hot water, which is a far superior system to a cold water pressure wash.
