Traditional fire restoration methods take 3 to 5 times longer than Dry Ice Blasting which uses C02 which converts to high pressured gas which is blasted against the surface resulting in quicker recovery and a restore to normal operating. The dry ice blasting eliminates odor that is left behind by fire damage. Typically, 24 hours after blasting, the odor is undetectable. This means that the use of encapsulation can be drastically reduced in fire restoration. Further, Dry Ice Blasting process has no secondary waste stream. So, when you are done cleaning, there is no need to go back and clean up the added mess other blasting medias, such as soda, water and sand, can leave behind.
