High pressure cleaning services have long been both a boon and a bane to business owners. While these cleaning methods have exhibited some measure of effectiveness in ridding machinery and equipment of dirt, grime, oil and grease, they also cause significant damage to delicate interior parts due to abrasion and corrosion. This results in a much shorter lifespan for the machine. On the other hand, solvents react with chemicals and other substances that have accumulated within the dirty equipment, which could lead to the production of harmful residues and the emission of toxic fumes that are hazards to worker health and the environment.
In contrast, dry ice cleaning has none of these disadvantages. The fine, snow-like dry ice pellets deliver extreme cold temperatures onto machine surfaces which destroy the bond between the surface and dirt, causing prompt removal of all contaminants. Because it can easily seep into cracks, nooks and crannies, dry ice cleaning is ideal for complex machinery, so that there is no need for disassembly. Even with the use of a high pressure compression gun, there is no abrasive action because the CO2 pellets immediately evaporate on impact.
The biggest advantage to using this cleaning method is that the dry ice pellets are eco-friendly byproducts from other processes. Plus, these same pellets do not react with chemicals, so that there is no risk for toxic exposure. In fact, dry ice cleaning is the only industrial and commercial cleaning service that is approved by the FDA, EPA and USDA.
Business owners in the Midwest states of South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa have long benefited from the dry ice cleaning services being provided by Midwest Dry Ice Blasting. Rather than expose your machinery and equipment to potential damage from traditional high pressure cleaning methods, get the services of dry ice cleaning experts.
