Dry Ice-Blasting is a form of non-abrasive blasting, where Dry Ice, the solid form of Carbon Dioxide, is accelerated in a Pressurized Air Stream and directed at a Surface in order to clean it.

The method is similar to other forms of Abrasive Blasting such as Sand Blasting, Plastic Bead Blasting, or Soda blasting but substitutes Dry Ice as the blasting medium. Dry-Ice Blasting leaves No Chemical Residue as dry ice Sublimates at Room temperature.

Steam Cleaning machines use superheated steam, also known as “saturated dry steam” containing only about 5% micro – water particles in the vapour, to remove dirt, grime, oil, grease and stubborn buildup and stains and avoid leaks of dust.

Steam cleaners reach pressure levels of up to 10 bar and temperatures of up to 185° C, depending on the model. Since the temperature they kill fungus, mold, bacteria, and other allergens.
