Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is an innovative cleaning method that utilizes dry ice to remove mold and other contaminants more quickly, effectively and safely than traditional cleaning methods. GeoFocus Mould Solutions employs only professional technicians who will utilize this equipment to rid your home, office or business of upwards of 99% of mold while also maintaining the integrity of the structural elements of your buildings.
Traditional cleaning methods, such as sand blasting, plastic bead blasting and soda blasting, can often lead to marring or other damage to the surface they’re used to clean. Because they also use particles such as sand or grind in the cleaning process they can be messy, as they require secondary clean up to rid the space of those particles.
Chemical cleaning methods, such as bleach, mold & mildew removers and hydrogen peroxide, can often be more harmful to the indoor environment than the mold itself. These products also do not address the primary source of the mold growth itself.
Dry ice blasting uses soft dry ice pellets, the solid form of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is accelerated at supersonic speeds in a pressurized stream creating tiny explosions on the contaminated surface to remove the mold. Because it’s so thorough and undamaging, this method is also used to decontaminate food process equipment of a variety of dangerous microorganisms, such as salmonella and E. coli.
Other benefits of dry ice blasting include: It’s non-abrasive, non-flammable and nonconductive, meaning it’s safe and effective; it’s clean and environmentally friendly, containing no secondary contaminants such as sand, other grit media or solvents; it’s versatility allows for thorough cleaning of tight spaces, such as attics, and means most items do not need to be disassembled to clean, saving time and money; it can be safely used on active electrical parts or mechanical apparatuses without creating fire hazards; it’s range of pressure means it can be as gentle as dusting smoke damage from books or as aggressive as removing weld slag from tools; it can also remove production residues, release agents, contaminants, paints, oils and biofilms.
Our certified dry ice blasting technicians can use this highly effective cleaning method to return your home, office or industrial site to the healthy space you desire. Call GeoFocus Mould Solutions today for a quote and consultation.
