Dry Ice Removes and Inhibits Mould Growth

Mould and Bacteria can cause a great amount of health issues when found in everyday living and working spaces. Common causes and habitats for mould growth include floods, leaks, plumbing problems, elevated humidity and inefficient cleaning. Allergies are on the rise, fungal infections have become common and contamination has become common and contamination has become a risk in production facilities, restaurant kitchens and product and food storage facilities.  Mould requires proper, direct treatment in order to remove existing spores and inhibit future growth by removing any matter that can support growth.

Dry Ice blasting is the most effective mould removal solution.  Mould remediators across North America are using dry ice blasting to reduce their remediation time by as much as 60-80% per project.  When sprayed with CO2 the mould is immediately killed upon contact causing it to shrink and detach itself from the surface.  Dry Ice blasting in addition sterilizes and sanitizes wood surfaces drawing out moisture to prevent future mould growth.  With high pressure blasting at -78ºC freezing temperatures, restoration is successful for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.

 

Dry Ice Blasting is Rapidly becoming the Preferred Method of Cleaning

  • Eliminates the toughest challenge; getting into hard to reach places and tight spots where scraping, grinding and sanding cannot.
  • Ensures complete removal around wiring, plumbing and other delicate areas without any damage.
  • Fast, safe and efficient leaving behind no secondary waste. This increase in productivity leads to a powerful ROI.
  • Thorough mould spore removal
