3 Benefits Of Dry Ice Blasting For Your Surface Preparation
Thanks in large part to recent advancements in technology, dry ice blasting has become an increasingly practical, affordable, and effective alternative method for cleaning and preparing surfaces around your commercial property for sealing or painting. Dry ice blasting can be used in a wide variety of different, sensitive cleaning situations where many other methods would either be unsuitable or too inconvenient. To help identify just a few of the many reasons that help make dry ice blasting an ideal method of surface preparation, our team of skilled professionals have taken the time to put together this short list that we hope you will take a few short minutes to read through. In it, we will go over several of the most notable benefits of using dry ice blasting in order to properly prepare your commercial or industrial surfaces.
Faster & More Effective
Compared with other methods of manual cleaning using solvents and wire brushes to properly prepare a surface, dry ice blasting is a much faster method of getting the job, helping you save on labor costs. Additionally, there is no need to disassemble and remove large pieces of machinery, as dry ice blasting is a dry process that leaves behind no moisture or residue. This can go a long way in helping to reduce downtime, letting you get back to business as normal as soon as possible.
It’s A Dry Process
As we stated above, dry ice blasting is a completely dry preparation process. Upon contact with a surface, dry ice sublimates, transforming straight into carbon dioxide gas as opposed to going into a liquid state. This makes dry ice blasting a completely non-conductive cleaning solution, letting you have peace of mind in knowing that it doesn’t pose a risk to any of your electrical appliances or equipment.
Environmentally Friendly & Safe
Dry ice blasting is a process that uses small pellets of recycled carbon dioxide in order to properly clean a surface and prepare it for staining, sealing, or painting. Because these pellets transform directly back into their gas state during the cleaning process, you won’t have any residue left behind, and the carbon dioxide will go on to be absorbed by trees and other plants around your property to produce more oxygen in turn. This makes dry ice blasting an excellent method for enhancing the sustainability of your business and maintaining a safe and healthy atmosphere for you and your employees alike.
