Dry Ice Blasting
The Environmental Effects/Impact
Dry ice blasting greatly reduces, or eliminates the need for caustics, solvents and other chemicals normally used for industrial cleaning.
This means fewer V.O.C. emissions, less hazards to employees and less waste disposal, resulting in a positive effect on our environment.
Most contaminants removed with dry ice blasting can simply be swept up and disposed of in a dumpster since there is no added waste from the blast (CO2) media.
This can mean huge cost savings also, for the typical customer. When CO2 blasting is utilized in the restoration marketplace, the environmental impact is likewise minimal.
Blasting fire soot and smoke from apartment buildings, commercial buildings and residential homes leaves no residue whatsoever, unlike the results obtained from sand, soda and other blasting media.
Mold remediation with CO2 blasting is also much less intrusive on the environment, in the same regard, and the mold spores are easily captured in HEPA filters, while the blasting is in progress.
Dry ice is made from recycled CO2, thus giving it a second useful life and has a net zero effect on the atmosphere. It is truly the most environmental friendly cleaning process available today!
