Dry-ice blasting is rapidly becoming the preferred method of cleaning wood in the restoration industry due to its unparalleled results and timesavings when compared to the usual methods of sanding or scraping with a wire brush. Contractors are cutting their project time by 60 percent or more per project. This innovative cleaning process is gaining momentum in the field of mold remediation, fire restoration, and historic building restoration for its ability to thoroughly clean surfaces like wood, metal, or masonry, while leaving no additional waste to attend to.

Time is of the essence in a fire restoration project or a mold remediation project. Insurance companies, real estate and title companies, and general contractors are all watching the clock when it comes to restoring a building or home. The quicker the problem is alleviated, the quicker the residents of the building can return. Dry-ice blasting allows the contractor to restore the contaminated building faster than any other method. Therefore, the displacement costs experienced by the insurance company are greatly reduced.
