Soda Blasting for Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration

Media blasting (also known as dry ice or soda blasting) is an effective cleaning solution for both residential and commercial fire and smoke damage restoration projects. Not only does media remove the visible soot damage, but it can help to deodorize smoke odor that can linger long after a fire has been extinguished.

What Types of Media Blasting Are Used in Fire Damage Restoration?

Two types of media blasting commonly used in fire damage restoration are dry ice blasting and soda blasting. The dry ice blasting process uses pellets made through the process of taking liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) and expanding it to produce a snow like substance that is compressed to make hard dry ice pellets. When dry ice blasting is used, dry ice pellets sublimate once they’ve hit the surface to be cleaned (meaning they transition directly from a solid blast pellet to a vapour) leaving a clean, dry surface with no residue. Although soda blasting is similar to other methods (e.g. sandblasting), it is considered “soft media” blasting, meaning it’s a low impact alternative making it ideal for delicate surfaces.
