HOW TO SAFELY REMOVE A BUCKET OF PAINT POURED ON A CAR

HOW TO SAFELY REMOVE A BUCKET OF PAINT POURED OVER A CAR AND OTHER HEAVY OVERSPRAY CONTAMINANTS

 

Don’t use dangerous solvents such as lacquer thinner, enamel reducer, acetone,  or some other similar solvent that could severely  damage your vehicle’s paint, cleacoat, trim, and moldings. Our safe method of removal is: to  wash the vehicle first and then apply a lubricant to those  areas  covered by the paint contamination. Then our highly skilled technician would take a specially  prepared blade and safely glide it over the lubricated surfaces and shave off the paint contamination. No  marks are left on the shaved surfaces from this safe process.

This same process is used on vehicle surfaces heavily oversprayed by industrial paints such as: epoxies, urethanes, and roofing foams. These often originate from the painting of :  water towers, storage tanks, high rise commercial buildings, bridges, communication towers, and the painting of lines on the road.

Auto body shops will often wet-sand heavy dense overspray from vehicle surfaces and then machine polish off the sanding scratches at high costs. Unfortunately, this process severely diminishes the life expectancy of a vehicle’s original factory paint and clear coated surfaces, all of which are only a few mills thick.  The use of clay bars, which are equivalent to  two to three thousand grit sandpaper will also damage a vehicle’s original paint and clear coated surfaces from being heavily rubbed back and forth many times to sand away the heavy overspray contamination. This sanding process is not recommended.

Our company, Overspray Removal Specialists, Inc. has the safe state of the art technology to  restore any oversprayed vehicle back to its original state prior to an overspray incident.

We have successfully removed overspray from an estimated 300,000 vehicles over our 53 years of business, and our mobile crews, if needed,  can do the same for you at your location anywhere in the nation.  We also specialize in handling overspray claims for insurance companies and painting contractors.

Heavy epoxy, urethane, and roofing foam overspray on vehicles most often cannot be removed through the use of a clay bar. Often when this is the case, those responsible for the overspray will then send owners of oversprayed vehicles to get repair estimates at auto body shops or auto dealerships. Frequently these repair facilities will opt to wet sand and re-paint the affected vehicles, and replace  their molding and trim parts at costs that can add up to several thousand dollars along with the cost of a rental car for several days.
We have seen repair costs on some oversprayed vehicles exceeding $25,000. Our suggestion is to have the overspray safely shaved by a highly skilled technician with years of experience. First, the vehicle is washed and then a lubricant is applied on the oversprayed vehicle surfaces. The technician then takes a specially prepared blade and glides it over the lubricated surface,  safely skimming off the heavy industrial overspray.  This process does not diminish the longevity of a vehicle’s paint life and is the safest method of removing heavy overspray from a vehicle surface. After the overspray has been removed the vehicle’s painted surfaces need to be hand polished, waxed and detailed .
As very few people in the nation are experienced in this type of work, the question is, where does one find a highly experienced technician? The good news is, Overspray Removal Specialists, Inc. offers this mobile service nationwide and their technicians have shaved thousands of vehicles, many of which were at new car dealerships.
Our cost for this service is often less than ten percent of what many auto body shops and auto dealerships would charge.
Our technicians, usually available on a 48 hour notice, are also very skilled at removing overspray from vehicle moldings and trim parts, that result in  the most expensive part of an overspray claim’s liability.
