How To Find Customers: From Real Dustless Blasting Business Owners

You can blast for virtually any business with a physical presence. Our successful contractors share a few of the easiest ways to get started.

Powder Coating Companies

Powder coating companies may need to:

  • Remove failed or unwanted coatings
  • Create an anchor profile for new coatings to adhere to

Your business offers a safer and cheaper alternative to traditional methods, such as caustic (dangerous and difficult) or burning coatings off (expensive).

Municipalities / Government

Cities, counties and states have a lot of maintenance to handle. Many of our business owners have secured contracts on jobs such as:

  • Stripping fire hydrants and manhole covers
  • Stripping curb paint and road stripes
  • Removing graffiti from public buildings and parks

Find these opportunities by contacting your local government offices.

Other possibilities are websites like Fed Biz Opps* (Federal Business Opportunities). This is where contracting officers will post opportunities that are valued at over $25,000. These listings will mention the requirements of how to bid on the job.

Swimming Pool Companies

When pools need to be re-painted or re-plastered, the old coatings must be removed. Let pool companies know that you are available for this service. Once they see how quickly you can remove plaster, most companies will want to sign a contract with you which means repeat business.

Property Management Companies

Before

After

Seek out companies that manage residential and commercial properties. Condos, private gated communities, industrial spaces etc. They have to upkeep their properties to make sure they are visually appealing, clean and safe for their renters. There are several opportunities at these properties that require a Dustless Blaster. From parking lots and stair cases, to elevator shafts and concrete walkways.

Fire Restoration

Connect with local companies that do clean up and fire restoration. With the use of our ADCS, you can incorporate soda blasting, enabling you to clean up the fire damage and deodorize at the same time.

Construction Companies

Getting on a sub-contractor list for construction companies is the best way to get repeat business and land bigger jobs that pay well. Once you build relationships with people in the industry, you'll be surprised at how many jobs keep coming in. industrial

Other Sand Blasters

It's smart to get to know the other sandblasters in your area. Keep in mind, not everyone likes taking on the same type of jobs. If there's a local guy in your area who is only interested in certain jobs, that means there are other industries who need you. He will be quick to refer you to the jobs he doesn't want and vice versa.

Pressure Washing / Power Washing Companies

Call local power or pressure washing businesses and talk about teaming up for projects. Pressure washing can be time consuming and wasteful, but by incorporating Dustless Blasting, they could get through projects in half the time. Likewise, you can share info on jobs that require a good rinse.

Other Contractors

Blasting can go hand in hand with other services. Most of the time, contractors can't do their part of the job if there is a coating on the surface they are trying to work with. That's where you come in!

— Simon J, Business Owner
