Abrasive blasting also known as sandblasting, is a common method for those who fabricate products made of metal to clean a surface or remove contaminants.  This process ensures the coatings bond permanently to any surface.

The most important part of sandblasting is being properly trained so the job is done right and safely.  Exposure to, and inhaling silica can cause silicosis among many different illnesses and without properly being aware of the substances that silica is found in, can lead to serious health problems, and in some situations, even death.  The professionals at Carlson have provided abrasive blasting services in Winnipeg for 75 years and for a variety of companies and locations.

Welcome one and all to 2015.

The year that lies ahead is going to be a busy one for your Winnipeg business, and amid the chaos of a rushed start to the year you may forget about the work you put off from the fall to your building’s interior or exterior.

There’s an old saying about first impressions, and it tells a very true story in the biz world. Your company’s success depends on you putting the best image forward for your organization, and your best image hinges on it looking great.

Cracks in the walls, old paint jobs deteriorating (possibly with older paint jobs showing through) and corrosion are all the kind of ‘adornments’ that can turn off consumer eyes. Using “it’s an industrial plant” is not a good scapegoat either, so don’t think you can brush it off.

The good news is that a lot of interior work from Carlson Commercial and Industrial Services can begin now, as well as some exterior work, with the latter ramping up as we get into better temperatures.

So be aware of what needs to be done, and start booking your consult with an expert from Carlson now, as you get your new year started.

It’s never a good story when an older building collapses, but when the damage could have been prevented with proper upkeep it just makes the story worse.

Such was the case in New Orleans just a couple weeks ago, when a 200-year-old-plus building collapsed. Fortunately, no one was a victim of the damage.

As described in an article on, there were facets of the building that weren’t properly secure, as pieces of the exterior had already detached.

“Neighbors note that the collapsed building’s exterior appeared ‘decrepit’ leading up to the incident,” the article stated. “Its back portion had missing clapboards, cracks and open windows, reports say.”

This has served as an important reminder for New Orleans of the fragile nature of their older structures, and should also be an important lesson for us to learn in Winnipeg. The importance of having a certified and professional company looking after your building’s restoration projects.

Whether you’re looking for work on a heritage building or your facility is newer, count on Carlson Commercial and Industrial Services for your building facade work. Our track record in Winnipeg and across Manitoba for abrasive blasting and additional services speaks for itself.
