Mold, Paint & Solvent Cleaning

US Cleanblast specializes in removing mold, paints and solvents from surface including commercial, residential or industrial applications.  We can use a variety of processes including dry ice blasting, media blasting or soda blasting.  Each offers benefits based on the project.

What Is Dry Ice Blasting?

Picture sandblasting or high-pressure water blasting, but with dry ice pellets. It is environmentally safe, kills 100% of mold spores, and removes the staining. Under pressurized air stream, the dry ice pellets are sent out accelerating at supersonic speeds to remove the mold off the substrate. Between the dry ice blast cleaning kinetic energy and thermal effects it breaks the connection between the mold and the wood. The dry ice blasting process is , non-corrosive, and non-conductive, non-toxic. As the dry ice particles impact the surface being cleaned, there is no secondary waste. Since there is no secondary waste stream, then we just hepa vacuum the blasted mold that was removed during the process.

Dry ice blasting completely removes the mold spores from wood surfaces with less effort and in less time. With dry ice blasting, Advanced Indoor Air Quality Care’s professionals can get in between beams, around electric wiring without any damage, into roof sheathing, allowing for complete mold spore removal and helping to reduce, and in some cases, eliminate the need for biocides and encapsulation. In a typical home remediation project, the mold removal off of sheeting and beams would takes 3 professionals approx. 5 business days to complete the project. There is lots of labor sanding and scraping, but with dry ice blasting, the process typically takes 2 technicians in 2 days. Less money for you because its less time for us.
