13 Aug Exploring the Benefits of CO2 Blasting for Historical Restoration
Dry ice is extremely cold (-109 degrees Fahrenheit) and when exposed to warmer temperatures, it instantly changes from a solid into a gas. This makes it the perfect and most hassle-free cleaning solution in many applications. However, within the historical restoration industry, CO2 cleaning services are especially essential for efficient renewal. Here are just a few fascinating advantages of dry ice cleaning within the historical restoration industry.
Dry ice blasting is gentle on delicate materials often used in old buildings.
Dry ice blasting is 100% ecologically safe, but it’s also harmless when applied to some of the most commonly used materials in older buildings. At the same time, it’s effective enough to fully remove any dirt, grime, mold, mildew, etc. Overall, dry ice blasting can safely clean old building materials including marble, brick, clay, terra cotta, masonry, wood, limestone, stonework, and more. It’s not abrasive and will not stain or damage any of these surfaces in any way.
Dry ice blasting preserves the artistic detail in historical buildings.
Dry ice blasting uses air compressed between 80 and 90 PSI to blast pellets of dry ice at a high velocity to clean a variety of surfaces. But since it’s completely non-abrasive, it preserves 100% of the creativity, attention to detail, and craftsmanship that went into the original building. Once the CO2 cleaning services are finished, the materials will maintain every bit of their bold and historic beauty.
Dry ice blasting makes historic buildings safe to occupy once again.
Finally, dry ice blasting solutions are the quickest and most efficient way to restore historic buildings to their original state — but this also means making them safe for human occupancy once again. According to the Mayo Clinic, 93% of Chronic Sinus Infections have been attributed to mold, and some buildings have built up dangerous biohazards that prevent humans from safely occupying them. After CO2 cleaning services, however, they’re safe for occupancy, and property owners can reinvent their sources of income.
Ultimately, understanding these benefits of dry ice blasting for historical restoration is the key to making the best decisions for your property cleaning needs. For more information about dry ice blasting companies, contact Mammoth Dry Ice.
