Historical Restoration - Dry Ice Blast Cleaning

The goal in restoration work is to return a structure to its original state by uncovering the underlying surfaces of the structure. It is critical to do this without the use of chemicals or abrasive cleaning methods because they can alter the integrity of the surface. Chemicals can leach into stone and abrasive cleaning methods can scratch and scar the surface being cleaned. It is also important to use a method with no secondary waste because in a project such as lead paint abatement, it is critical that the removal method be as streamlined and as carefully contained as possible.

Dry Ice Cleaning allows the restoration contractor to achieve the desired cleaning results without damaging the substrate. The machine operator can blast adjacent to marble, glass and onyx without causing any damage to these surfaces. Dry Ice Cleaning also leaves no secondary waste streams and provides drastic time savings.
