Safely restore historical items more quickly with non-abrasive cleaning method
Historical restoration with dry ice blasting allows for safe and effective restoration of historical items in a fraction of the time of alternative methods. The process is non-abrasive and will not damage the delicate surfaces being cleaned. The use of dry ice blasting equipment also eliminates manual cleaning with abrasive hand tools, harmful chemicals and water.
The dry ice blasting process is successful in removing layers of paint, carbon, pollution, smoke damage, mold and many other types of contaminants from all types of surfaces.

Dry ice blasting safely removes all types of contaminants from historic artifacts and structures
Cleaning this sculpture demonstrated how delicate – yet aggressive – this process can be just by varying nozzle type, nozzle length and pressure.

While the architect had first asked for soda blasting, we knew it would cost twice as much. With dry ice cleaning, there is no secondary waste and no extra setup to contain any contaminants. In addition, with the historic details on this monument, we felt that dry ice cleaning would be the right answer.

Dry ice blasting is proving its effectiveness in scores of cleaning applications, and – throughout the initial preparation phase of the Split Rock Lighthouse project – demonstrated that when it comes to historical restoration projects, it’s a process that must be considered.

The project was on schedule and incredibly fast. We saved at least three to four days when compared with sand or corn blasting and two days of sanding time. The log home looks brand new – it came out 110%.

Even when the surface was magnified 350 times, we didn’t see any pitting. We didn’t see any signs of abrasion. We didn’t see any damage.
