How Our Specialists Use Dry Ice In Our Mold Remediation Process In Glendale
Dry Ice Blasts Away Mold Damage In Glendale
One of the many ways that SERVPRO fights mold damage in Glendale homes is with the help of a process known as dry ice blasting. Although the name can, for many people, conjure up frightening images of home damage at the hands of inexperienced repair crews, dry ice blasting is, in reality, a safe and effective tool to remove mold from surfaces. To understand how and why we use this technique in local homes, you should first know a bit more about how it works.
Dry ice blasting is particularly useful for cleaning mold damage in Glendale thanks to its chemical makeup. Dry ice is composed of carbon dioxide that has been frozen to extremely low temperatures, without any water added to the mix. So, when we use pressurized air to blast small pellets of dry ice onto patches of mold growth, we can remove spores from the surface without causing any water damage to the area. Furthermore, water can sometimes be helpful rather than harmful to mold growth and is generally not a recommended base for cleaning solutions used on fungi. Rather than melting, dry ice sublimates or converts directly from a solid to a gas. Thus, we can clean relatively large areas of your home without any risk of causing more damage.
Our dry ice blasters use shavings and pellets of dry coupled with pressurized air to scrape mold spores off of your walls, floors, and other home surfaces down to the microscopic level. Although this process can cause minor damage to some materials if done improperly, our technicians are all trained and certified to know when to use these tools and what their limits are. Due to the loud noises and potential for flying debris, we urge you to keep clear of our technicians whenever they are using our blasting machines.
