Dry ice blasting is an excellent choice for cleaning both indoor and outdoor objects. Water-free cleaning technology ensures no risk of damage due to moisture. Surfaces become immediately dry and can therefore be used immediately if necessary. Dry ice cleaning does not generate secondary waste. The need for additional protection is minimal when cleaning with dry ice. Buildings or other objects do not need to be covered, which saves costs and significantly accelerates work.
Dry ice cleaning can quickly and effectively remove moss, algae, lichen, vines, coatings, paint, cement and other impurities. Dry ice cleaning is a non-abrasive technology suitable for any surface – concrete, tiles, wood, metal, marble, stone, plastic, etc. Layers of residue, such as paint, coatings, fungi, graffiti or chewing gum, are removed gently without damaging the cleaned surface. Dry ice pellets immediately evaporate (sublimate) during the cleaning process. No secondary waste remains after cleaning, only removed dirt, which can be easily swept or vacuumed. This method is also suitable for cleaning historical buildings, structures or statues.
Dry Ice Blasting in the Construction Industry
Dry ice blasting is suitable for many different applications in the construction industry. It can be done both outdoors and indoors, regardless of season. It is a good method, for example, for final surface treatment to remove plaster and paint. Dry ice blasting is a safe method of cleaning round log structures, especially because the materials do not come into contact with water. Dry ice cleaning is not based on abrasion but thermal shock. It does not create wearing on the cleaned surface. For this reason, the method can also be used to clean sensitive surfaces such as textiles, glass, electrical equipment and electrical wires. It removes paint, glue, ink, grease, oil, fungi, lime, chewing gum, urethane and concrete.
