Sponge-Jet to be Featured on New HGTV Show!

Check out Sponge-Jet’s television debut on “Who’s Afraid of a Cheap Old House?” live on HGTV at 10pm EST, May 14th, 2024 and set your DVR's to record it! The show will also be available live for international audiences on YouTube TV.

“Who’s Afraid of a Cheap Old House?” follows Elizabeth and Ethan Finkelstein, founders of the popular Instagram account, @CheapOldHouses, as they embark on the journey of helping people find their dream cheap, old houses and turn their neglected properties into beautiful, livable spaces. In the eight-episode first season, the Finkelsteins guide eight families through the process of finding their dream home for under $199,000, then make it their own, while still maintaining the historic home's innate charm and decades of history.

With Elizabeth’s background in historic preservation, and Ethan’s interest in Do-It-Yourself restoration projects, they take their passion for saving old properties and share it with the world. For the next eight weeks, HGTV viewers can enjoy seeing complete transformations of historic "Cheap Old Houses" into lovingly restored homes.

Sponge-Jet is thrilled to be a part of the season premiere episode airing next Tuesday, May 14th! Sponge-Jet Technology was chosen as the solution for a building restoration project on a property in Upstate New York. Follow partners Bill and Joe, as they make the tough decision between renovating a former fraternal meeting hall with exposed brick, or a firehouse with tin ceilings and walls. No matter which spot they choose to transform, we'll be there to lend a helping hand!

"Who's Afraid of a Cheap Old House?" hosts Elizabeth and Ethan Finkelstein said on the project, and working with Sponge-Jet, "Being able to suit up and tag-team this project with Sponge-Jet was an incredibly educational experience, and we're eager to share our recommendation for Sponge Blasting as a preservation and conservation solution to our colleagues."
