How to clean various surfaces from bacteria, yeasts, spores and molds without using chemicals, alkalis, toxic substances and acids? We know the answer: with dry ice!
Cleaning without chemicals sounds risky, doesn’t it? We have all got used to the strong solvents, bases and acids that are used for industrial cleaning. But the fact is that they carry major health risks. However, there is also a safe non-toxic and non-chemical cleaning method – dry ice blasting.
Dry ice is the solid form of carbon dioxide. It is used primarily as a cooling agent. Its advantages include lower temperature than that of water ice and not leaving any residue (other than incidental frost from moisture in the atmosphere). It is useful for preserving frozen foods where mechanical cooling is unavailable. Dry ice sublimates at 194.65 K (−78.5 °C; −109.3 °F) at Earth atmospheric pressures. This extreme cold makes the solid dangerous to handle without protection due to burns caused by freezing (frostbite). While generally not very toxic, the outgassing from it can cause hypercapnia (abnormally elevated carbon dioxide levels in the blood) due to buildup in confined locations. (Wikipedia)
It is known that dry ice inhibits bacterial growth, the dry ice purification process stops the growth of molds, spores, and reduces contamination. Dry ice helps reduce the development of yeast and other bacteria. In addition, it is non-toxic, odorless and suitable for all surfaces from metal, wood, concrete to fine wood structure or glass and textile.
The cleaning effect of dry ice pellets is to weaken the bond between the contaminant and the cleaned surface by inducing heat stress. The advantages of dry ice blasting are the elimination of water and solvents and the bacteriostatic effect of CO2 on microorganisms.
