Water blasting may refer to one of two things, hydrocleaning or hydrodemolition. In this article, we’ll explain what the difference is between them, their similarities, and the benefits of using high-pressure water blasters for cleaning and demolition.
Hydrocleaning, also known as pressure or power washing, is the use of high-pressure water blasting to clean a surface from such things as dirt, old paint, rust, chemicals, and other heavy build-ups without damaging the surface below it. The results are comparable to using abrasives and cleaning agents but without the dust and other health hazards.
Water blasting operations are commonly categorized into high-pressure and ultra-high pressure hydrocleaning based on the following pressures:
Hydrodemolition refers to the process of using high-pressure jetting to remove concrete. Similarly to hydrocleaning, it’s usually separated into two categories:
Hydrocleaning can be said to be included in hydrodemolition as surface preparation is an important part of concrete removal, to create a rough surface and allow for bonding with new concrete.
Bridges. Parking decks. Dams. Tunnels. Piers. If a concrete structure needs repair, we have the optimal concrete removal solution for the task. For over 35 years we’ve led the development of robotic hydrodemolition technology, a technology with a proven track record as the most sustainable and effective method for concrete removal and other types of surface preparation projects.

The water stream can easily be focused on very small areas to selectively remove coatings or concrete without damaging nearby surfaces.
Water is the least corrosive and harmful compared to other cleaning agents, and reduces both noise and dust pollution when demolishing concrete.
As water will just flow or dry up the clean-up work is reduced, and there’s no risk of clogging the blasting machine or other equipment.
Prepares an ideal surface for bonding with new concrete, coatings, etc.
Dramatically improve efficiency where it’s many times faster than traditional means of cleaning or demolishing.
