Some cleaning jobs require a little extra care. Fragile areas and objects suffer irreparable damage when treated with the wrong cleaning methods. Standard sand blasting and other similar methods can potentially cause more harm than good. The best alternative, our FDA approved soda blasting services, effectively clean and restore surfaces on more delicate jobs.
When used to clean the Statue of Liberty in the 1980s, soda blasting made a name for itself as the safest method for special restoration projects. Since then soda blasting has blasted off in popularity.
A very mild form of abrasive blasting, soda blasting restores surfaces much less violently than standard sand blasting. Using only 20psi, the process uses much less pressure than sand blasting’s 120psi. Soda blasting applies sodium bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, against the surface using compressed air pumped out of a special blast nozzle. The soda explodes away unwanted surface materials without damaging the actual surface.
Standard sand blasting develops hazardous dust that can enter your lungs and cause serious health risks. FDA approved and environmentally friendly, soda blasting does not produce toxic chemicals in the air. Touching, inhaling, and even ingesting the soda does not pose serious health risks.
Easily damaged applications require the extra care our soda blasting services provide. Soda blasting restores and deodorizes timber, wood, oak, doors, stairs, vehicles, and boat hulls. It can clean structural steel, remove graffiti and repair surfaces damaged by mold, smoke, and fire.
