However, this isn’t always the case nowadays, especially with Dry Ice Blasting – the most effective mold removal and remediation technique. Mold removal requires direct treatment to remove spores and prevent future growth. Dry ice blasting does this while protecting and restoring your home, furniture and other belongings. It’s used by most remediators in residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings. Below are the benefits of the process and the reasons why it’s the preferred method of removal.

What Happens During the Process

The Dry Ice Blasting method is the preferred method of mold remediation because it reduces remediation times and requires less manpower. However, the simplicity of the method also makes it popular among remediation specialists. During the process, CO2 is blasted from a high-pressure vacuum at -78ºC, causing the mold to shrink and detach itself immediately. Plus, it removes moisture from every surface.

Helps Maintain the Integrity of Your Home

Mold can cause a lot of serious damage to your roof, flooring, drywall and other structures in your home. Besides that, the mold removal process can involve tearing down certain structures, but this isn’t necessary with Dry Ice Blasting. The process restores structures instead of destroying them. It also offers thorough cleaning and a fast recovery. However, there are many more benefits to using this mold removal method.

Major Benefits of the Dry Ice Blasting Method

For remediation specialists, this method of mold removal offers many benefits. First, it reduces remediation time by 60 to 80 percent. The technique also allows remediators to reach the tightest spots and hard-to-reach areas – something the scraping and sanding method doesn’t allow them to do. So, the mold can be completely removed from a home. Besides that, it also allows for:

  • Cleaning around plumbing and wiring without causing damage
  • Destroying organic contaminants
  • Cleaning around nails, obstructions, detail work and other tight areas
  • A reduction in high current power tool usage
  • Safe, fast and efficient removal that leaves no secondary waste
  • Less manpower
  • Completely dry and contaminant free surfaces that maintain their structural integrity
  • Thorough spore removal
  • Removal of moisture from wood surfaces to prevent future mold growth
