Commercial & Industrial Rust Removal Services

Rust and corrosion are common issues in industrial and commercial structures. Moisture, oxygen, salt, and other corrosive agents chemically react with iron, steel, and metal to cause rust and corrosion. In concrete structures, rust often forms when moisture reaches the metal rebar.

Unfortunately, it takes very little of these corrosive agents to spur the oxidation process and begin corroding the substrate. Contact a pro as soon as you see signs of corrosion. McCahill Painting is specially trained in rust and corrosion control and we have helped hundreds of customers resolve rust issues and prevent them from returning.

Our Rust & Corrosion Control Process

  1. ASSESS– First we identify and evaluate all areas of rust and corrosion, assess stains and damage, and pinpoint the sources of exposure to moisture and corrosive agents.
  2. CLEAN & REPAIR – Next, we remove any rust and corrosion as gently as possible while protecting the substrate, repair any structural decay or damage, and resolve caulk and joint failures or other compromises that are allowing moisture and corrosive agents access to your surfaces. Techniques and applications may include abrasive blasting, sanding, hand tools, and hot water power washing.
  3. PREVENT – Once the surface is restored, we apply carefully selected rust-inhibiting primers and rust encapsulation coatings to prevent future corrosion. These products, when applied properly, create a protective barrier to keep out corrosive agents and discourage future rust and corrosion.
  4. PAINT – Now that the substrate is protected, industrial and commercial-grade paint can be applied for aesthetic and safety purposes.
  5. INSPECT & MAINTAIN – Because early intervention prevents costly damage, we recommend inspecting your property and structures regularly and quickly addressing any further vulnerable areas or observed rust or corrosion as soon as possible. Our knowledgeable team is happy to help assess your property for regular maintenance.
