What Can Dry Ice Get Rid Of?

You’ve undoubtedly experienced difficult cleaning difficulties as an insurance adjuster, company owner, contractor, builder, or homeowner and pondered why there couldn’t be a better solution!

That’s right, there is now. In practically any circumstance, there is now a better technique to clean almost anything. What is this “better way” you speak of? Blasting with dry ice!

So, what can this cleaning method clean and how does it work?

First and first, dry ice is not the same thing as ice. It does not melt in the same way as ice does. It’s not water, but rather a super-cooled gas. CO2 is a fully harmless gas that we encounter in our daily lives. It’s so strong that you’re breathing it right now! Your body inhales O2 (oxygen) and exhales CO2 with each breath (carbon dioxide).

CO2 is condensed in liquid form and extruded at extremely low temperatures to make dry ice. The finished product is then kept in huge insulated refrigerators until it’s time to utilise it. It’s dry because there’s no water in it, and it’s frozen because, well, it’s frozen. It is absolutely dry, despite the fact that it is quite cold; temperatures have dropped to 115 degrees (f) below zero!

“How does this amazing product clean?” you might wonder.

A form of thermal shock happens as a result of the temperature differential between the ice pellets and the surface being cleaned, essentially breaking the binding between the dirt, crud, mould, or soot being cleaned and the surface it’s connected to.

Dry contaminates will disintegrate into little pieces, droppings, or dust, which can be readily swept or vacuumed out.

If the contaminant is liquid, like grease or oils, the dry ice cleaning technique will simply cause it to fall to the floor, where it may be collected on an oil absorbent mat. After that, the mat is collected and properly disposed of.

When the ice pellets collide, they sublimate, or turn back into a gas, so there’s no secondary waste to clean up like there is with sand blasting or solvent cleaning.

“So,” you might wonder, “what can these miraculous pellets clean?”

The following impurities will be simply, cleanly, and efficiently cleaned with the ice cleaning process:

Grease, oil, and other petroleum goods are available.
Cutting oils, lubricants of various kinds, gels, and pastes
Old, flaking paint
Getting rid of mould
Soot removal from charred wood
Getting rid of mildew
Dirt, filth, and other detritus were stuck to the walls, ceilings, and other surfaces…
Waste from injection moulds and rubber
Brick, masonry, and concrete were covered with old plaster, mortar, and detritus.
The list could go on forever…
In almost every condition, dry ice may be utilised to clean almost any contamination. Because dry ice is non-conductive, it may also be used to clean electrical components and delicate computing components.
