Firstly, welcome to A Blast to the Past. We are a family run business, located in Hailsham, East Sussex.

We are a mobile cleaning/restoration company who can clean a multitude of surfaces, from brick/stone/limestone/metals/flint/render/fibre glass/wood and carpets using the latest technology which is efficent and enviromentaly friendly.

So whether its graffiti removal to paint removal to anti-foul removal of boat hulls, we have got it covered. 
The services are:

Using the torick- stone cleaning system we use high pressured/high temperature water and agents to clean a variety of surfaces and also remove paint/graffiti from any surface. This sytem is a far more gentler way of cleaning without any damage to substrate.

ARMEX Soda: blasting is a revolutionary cleaning and paint stripping technology that uses compressed air to propel bicarbonate of soda onto a surface. The process removes paint and contaminates without harming the original surface.  The unique properties of sodium bicarbonate allow it to remove paint, grease, mold, oil, soot, and other contaminants without risk The sodium bicarbonate used is a specially formulated type of baking soda. This non-toxic, food-grade material is 100% water soluble and environmentally safe.  Soda blasting is the safest and ‘greenest’ alternative to sand blasting and grit blasting.

Resto-fine recycled glass: blasting is used in the same way as the soda, it still uses compressed air to propel media onto a surface, however different materials to soda are used.  Our most popular method of Media Blasting is often referred to as ‘Bead Blasting’ which is when very fine glass beads are used.  Bead Blasting is as safe and effective as soda when used to remove paint etc., however it leaves the surface slightly rough, unlike the smooth finish usually provided by soda.

Resto-fine synthetic aluminum silicate: blasting is used in the same way as soda, and the recycled glass. The main purpose is where there is a larger profile or faster speed is required for the heavy duty cleaning jobs

Wet blasting: Our Wet Blast machine uses compressed air to propel water and an abrasive medium from a nozzle onto a surface.  This provides very effective, environmentally friendly, closed loop surface cleaning. The glass bead used in the system is blasted with water at the component. The water buffers the particles on impact allowing very fine finishes to be produced without damage to the component. The vapor blasting process is suitable for aluminum, bronze, magnesium, titanium, brass, copper etc. It will gently clean the surface without damage and leaves a satin finish that is very easy to keep clean.  Please be aware that any items that rust cannot be vapor blasted, as they will oxidize instantly. Whilst every care is taken to ensure there is no glass bead remaining, we do advise that you rewash all parts again before fitting.
