Using Dry Ice Blasting to Uncover Fire Damage
Fire damage is the hardest type of damage to assess. Understanding what can be repaired and what can be replaced after a fire is difficult since smoke and charring mask structural damage. Finding out if the structural integrity is still intact is vital to determining whether or not a structure is uninhabitable after a fire. Luckily, dry ice blasting is a great way to remove the smoke and soot from fire damage without damaging what could be salvaged. Keep reading to find out how dry ice blasting works!
Dry Ice Blasting Can Help
The biggest reason dry ice blasting is great for fire damage remediation is that it’s easier on the structure than sand blasting or plastic bead blasting. Dry ice blasting works by shooting CO2 particles at high speeds using compressed air. When the particles hit the surface being cleaned they create a micro-thermal shock since they are at such a low temperature. In addition to the shock, the small dry ice particles explode on contact. The rapid expansion from a solid to a gas helps remove the material from the surface being cleaned.
