Dry Ice Blasting
At Fresh Air Technologies, our air quality experts have many years of professional experience using dry ice blasting mold removal techniques for homes.
Fresh Air Technologies pioneered the use of dry ice blasting for mold remediation in the Charlotte area. Over the years, our experts have demonstrated the use of this technique as a safe, thorough and effective alternative to harsh chemical cleaning in our client’s homes and businesses.
Dry ice blasting is a cleaning technique that that uses compressed air to accelerate carbon dioxide ice particles to supersonic speeds. These particles impact the surface lifting dirt and other contaminates from the substrate. The spent ice particles sublimate into the air, reducing the time and effort needed for clean-up. Dry ice cleaning is non-abrasive, non-conductive, non-toxic, and non-flammable. It cleans without chemicals and additional water and does not create secondary waste streams.
The blasting stream overcomes many of the common obstacles found in crawl spaces like nails and piping that make it very difficult to get around using the traditional brushing and sanding techniques. It is easy for us to get to all areas that need remediating.
Dry ice blasting works by micro-abrading the wood allowing us to safely disrupt the root system of the mold, further enhancing the removal. The process is totally safe for the wood. In addition, the micro-abraded surface leaves the building material looking like it has just come from the lumber yard.
In addition, dry ice blasting is useful for the removal of soot as part of a fire restoration project or the cleaning of an interior brick or stone fireplace. The process creates no mess and can be used anywhere in your home. Our trained technicians use the newest and most technologically advanced equipment. We guarantee the same unmatched quality of work that we have offered for years!
Is Dry Ice Blasting Good for Mold Remediation?
True mold remediation removes mold spores instead of trying to kill them by using dangerous chemicals and scraping with a wire brush. Mold remediation is a process; not a chemical or treatment. The intention of dry ice blasting is to remove the spores and their root system to protect against new infestation. Fresh Air uses a state-of-the-art process that has been proven to be superior for mold remediation when compared with traditional methods like sanding, scraping and wire brushing. These methods often leave traces of mold spores in the wood grain and in areas difficult to reach.
Will Dry Ice Blasting Remove the Mold Better Than Traditional Methods?
This method has been proven to be more effective than other methods such as sanding, scraping and wire brushing. The reason is that these methods do not completely remove the mold and can often leave small amounts of mold spores in wood grain and in hard-to-reach spaces. Dry ice blasting is also faster and cleaner than any other method. The CO2 pellets (dry ice) evaporate on contact, leaving nothing but a clean surface that looks like new.
