Applications For Dry Ice Blasting
Dry ice blasting is so safe and effective, it can be used in virtually every facet of property damage restoration and environmental remediation. Common applications include:
- Mould remediation
- Lead treatment and lead paint abatement
- Flood recovery and water damage repair
- Fire recovery and cleanup
The speed, efficiency and affordability of dry ice blasting make it a great choice to restore homes and offices after a disaster. It’s a process that can clean surfaces and materials better than any other method available today. However, it’s the effectiveness of this safe, environmentally-friendly cleaning powerhouse that makes it a leading choice among industry leaders.
How Does It Work?
Dry ice blasting mimics sand blasting in that it uses a material “blasted” by pressurized air to hit a surface at a very high rate of speed. These fast-moving projectiles clean or otherwise prepare the surface for another treatment. However, the similarities end there.
Instead of using an abrasive material like sand to grind the surface (and possibly damage it too), dry ice blasting uses a much softer substance, dry ice, to get the job done. It is non-abrasive, flame proof and environmentally-friendly too! Dry ice blasting allows items to be cleaned without disassembly because the particles are so small. Dry ice particles can access spaces that no other cleaning methods could hope to reach. Moving electrical and/or mechanical parts in appliances or machinery are no problem when using dry ice blasting as the cleaning method of choice.
Dry ice blasting can be used for delicate applications like cleaning smoke damage from books after a fire, or heavy-duty purposes such as cleaning heavy machinery after a flood. The CO2 gas is non-toxic and dry ice contains no secondary contaminants. It is one of the safest, most effective cleaning tools in the property restoration toolbox.

Dry Ice Blasting By Decon
Decon Environmental Remediation offers dry ice blasting as one of its many services to get people in Toronto and Southern Ontario back to the homes they love or the jobs that support the people they love.
We decided to do some extensive renovations to our house and because it was built around the time that may contain asbestos materials, we decided to do some testing. After going through countless companies to qualify their credentials for the project, Decon Environmental was selected out of all the companies that were on the short list. Aside from the qualifications that must be met such as Insurance specific to abatement, licensed/certified workers, and the standard procedures specific to the type of abatement of a project, we based our decision on additional factors. The experience and expertise that Angela brought to the table was very valuable. Her understanding and compassion for home owners faced with this material when trying to upgrade their homes was very welcoming. She was able to provide a wealth of information to educated us to protect ourselves. She was the only consultant that actually got down to the ground in her work attire to try to take out a piece of under laying tile from the floor vent that was underneath a layer of ceramic tile to confirm our suspicion of another area that may contain asbestos. This showed her dedication and willingness to help us quickly in determining the scope of the project. Dealing with Angela as a point person made the process more streamlined and seamless.
We were extremely happy with our decision after seeing how the team on site worked. Looking at Juan and his crew work together showed the experience that they had in dealing with these materials. What impressed me was the sheer process in setting up the containment. Juan simply rambled off instructions to his crew and without any questions, they got to work. It was almost as if it was rehearsed. That made our decision even more comforting that we chose the right company. If I were to use a word to describe their work, it would be “surgical”.
All that being said, we hired a 3rd party consultant to perform an inspection of the setup, pre-lockdown inspection and aggressive air sampling at the end of the project. Throughout each stage, the consultant was highly impressed with the results of what he saw. This was the final piece of the puzzle and confirmed our decision of choosing the right company overall.
The experience in dealing with Decon has been very positive. Their work is professional and precise, but their ability to bring it down a notch to personalize the experience is what sets them apart from the rest of the field.
