Reduce cleaning time up to 80%
Cold Jet dry ice blasting removes 99.9% of mold spores from wood, and it does so up to 80% faster than traditional cleaning methods. Cold Jetting provides complete removal even in the tight angles of trusses, around nails, wiring and all plumbing without damage.
Dry ice blasting is rapidly increasing the amount of mold remediation projects a firm can perform, due to a 60-80% time and manpower reduction, as well as the technology's ability to thoroughly remove mold spores from wood. Add to that the ability to reach tight, confined areas; the significant lack of sanding and scraping; and no secondary waste streams, and Cold Jet dry ice technology is a business-building opportunity that has finally come of age.
The existence of mold in a building is the symptom of much larger problem with moisture. As any mold remediator knows, eliminating the moisture problem is the only way to assure the mold will not return. Once the moisture problem has been solved, remediation of the existing mold is top priority. Mold can cause a great deal of health problems and can severely damage the integrity of a building's structure. So, removing the mold in its entirety is vital to any mold remediation project.
The only way to ensure mold spore removal from wood is through dry ice blasting. Cold Jet, the technological leader in the dry ice blasting industry, provides the complete blasting solution for any mold removal project. Cold Jet has carefully considered the needs of the Mold Remediation expert and has developed a system that allows for easy entry into tight places, otherwise impossible to reach, and mold spore removal in drastically less time than any traditional removal method. No other company can provide the variety of essential nozzles and accessories to ensure complete spore removal from the multitudes of angles a mold remediator typically encounters.
Using the traditional methods of sanding and scraping a mold infested attic, three technicians would typically complete an attic job in five or six working days. However, with the Cold Jet dry ice blasting solution, two technicians can complete that very same job in two days. Therefore, residents have lower displacement costs and the remediators can take on more remediation work.
The unpleasant and uncomfortable process of squeezing into tight corners to sand the mold off of wood trusses and joists, only to have mold spores remain, is soon to become a thing of the past. Cold Jet dry ice blasting provides for complete spore removal from wood. This means that the use of biocides and encapsulation can be drastically reduced or eliminated, as these registered pesticides were used as a back-up method to kill and contain left over mold spores. However, dead mold is still allergenic and must be removed. Cold Jet removes all mold spores, so these chemicals are no longer needed.
