Dry Ice Cleaning:
Dry ice cleaning is fast, dry, and non-abrasive cleaning. It uses compressed air to accelerate solid carbon dioxide (CO2) dry ice pellets to a high velocity to clean a variety of surfaces including industrial machinery, equipment, fire damaged surfaces, and mold.
Dry ice blasting is clean, safe, and versatile allowing for applications within homes as well as businesses.
Dry ice has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) as an acceptable material in cleaning methods.
For example, dry ice blasting in the food processing industry has been documented by the Food Standards Agency to effectively decontaminate surfaces of Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria.
Dry ice blasting does not release harmful gases into the atmosphere and does not generate secondary waste (pellets sublimate upon impacting the surface).
It is safe and non-toxic – reducing or eliminating employee exposure to (and corporate liability from) the use of dangerous chemical cleaning agent.
Dry Ice Cleaning Applications:
