The preferred fire restoration cleaning method of choice
Dry ice blasting is fast becoming the preferred method of choice when dealing with the aftermath of a fire. The recovery following fire damage can be costly if using the traditional methods such as scraping, wire brushing, chemical cleaning etc, can often require several cleaning personnel and take many days adding to the expense. time and cause additional damage.
Dry ice blasting is much more effective and can access areas of wood that are not readily accessible, such as in tight angles in trusses and around wiring, nails and plumbing and goes some way to eliminate the carbon odour. Often timbers in old buildings will have become damaged, and if it’s only surface damage, we can quickly and effectively remove the carbon, without the need to replace them. If badly damaged, they can be cleaned well enough to assess their viability. This applies for all surfaces in which we are able to clean.
The dry ice disappears on contact, and therefore there is only minimal waste to clean up.
We have been involved in many listed building fire restoration projects, due to our delicate and sympathetic method of cryogenically cleaning. Being non abrasive no further damage is caused to the area being treated. From this, we have become recognised as specified approved contractors on many fire restoration projects.
