Dry Ice Blasting

Dry Ice Blasting is one of our specialties!

Dry ice blasting is an environmentally friendly and cost effective cleaning method that can be used in a variety of applications.  Rainbow International® of Greater Portland has years of experience in mold and soot remediation using specialized dry ice blasting techniques.  Most often we are removing mold in attics and crawlspaces or soot from fire damaged homes.

Dry ice blasting is similar to sand blasting and soda blasting in that media (frozen CO2) is accelerated through a nozzle via compressed air.  The dry ice explodes on contact with the undesirable substance and removes it without damaging the substrate.  Our blasting methods allow us to safely and efficiently remove mold and soot without damaging wood sheathing, framing, plumbing or electronics.  Most of the time, Rainbow International of Greater Portland is able to blast items in place and without disassembly.  The blasting process also eliminates the use of other potentially harmful contaminants or chemicals that other methods leave behind.  Therefore, dry ice blasting can be performed in food industry settings and other production areas where sanitization is necessary.  Dry ice blasting is perfect for production environments, where time is money.  We can dry ice blast production equipment without worrying about electrical components and is non-flammable.
