Dry Ice Blasting Services
Dry Ice Blasting Experts
Strength H2O Industrial Solutions is an industry leader and specializes in dry ice blasting cleaning services. Unlike pressure washing, high pressure hydro blasting, and chemical cleaning, ice blasting uses no toxic solvent and is nonabrasive. Also, with other cleaning methods, the cleaning agent becomes a contaminant and must be disposed of as a toxic waste.
Ice Blasting is successful in removing coatings, sealants, adhesives, grease, paint, soot and more. It is the preferred method to clean in and around electrical components. In addition, it can be used inside a business and the business doesn't have to close.
Why Clean With Dry Ice Blasting?
As a replacement of using abrasive media to grind and potentially damage a surface, ice blasting uses dry ice accelerated at high speeds, that lifts the undesirable item off the surface. Benefits of using:
- Only thing left to clean up afterwards is what’s been removed from the surface.
- Safe For Indoors & Tight Spaces
- Non-toxic & Cost-Effective

Ice Blasting Is A Perfect Non-Toxic Solution
Adhesives are easily removed in comparison to other cleaning methods as the lowered temperature serves to weaken the adhesive bond. Abrasive methods most often produce heat and can therefore fail with some adhesive removal.
Dry Ice blasting is highly effective in removing toxic residues, soot, and associated smells after a fire. Independent blasters often work with major insurance companies over a large geographic area to quickly clean fire and smoke damaged locations.
Food Manufacturing & Processing Equipment
Build up of surface contaminants such as oils, grease, proteins, packaging glue and more, that prevents equipment from operating at peak efficiency and in a sanitary and compliant condition. Unfortunately, traditional manual cleaning methods are time-consuming, not fully effective, require disassembly, and often involve significant amounts of water, chemicals, and resulting waste water costs.
Ice blast cleaning can be effectively used on food contact surfaces, adjoining equipment, support equipment (such as forklifts), and on reducing built-up dirt and loose paint chips in your facility itself. It is effective in confined spaces, such as storage bins, silos, tanks, and other hard to reach areas that must be kept clean and dry.
Cleaning of the surface of products will remove mold, mildew and other fungi, as well as stopping odors at the source by eliminating unwanted organisms. Dry Ice cleaning is 100% ecologically safe, USDA rated, biodegradable and harmless to humans, animals and marine life.
Cleaning Industrial & Production Equipment
Dry Ice Blasting is particularly effective at cleaning industrial and production equipment. Unlike other types of media blasting, Dry Ice Blasting generates no additional waste or secondary contamination. Upon contact with the surface to be cleaned, the dry ice pellets transform directly from a solid to a gas (no liquid phase) in a process known as sublimation, leaving no residue behind. This also makes it ideal for situations where moisture is not an option. It is nonabrasive, nonconductive, and nonflammable. This method is especially effective at reaching hard to reach places reducing the need for disassembly of the equipment.
The process has been approved by the EPA, FDA and the USDA and is an environmentally friendly (green) cleaning method.
Many business owners have considered using this process for cleaning purposes, but are concerned with the effect the thermal shock will have on the parent metal. Also, many studies have shown that the temperature decrease occurs on the surface only, so there is no chance of thermal stress occurring in the surface being cleaned. Common applications are:
- Contract Cleaning
- Food & Beverage
- Plastics & Composites
- Adhesive Removal
- General Equipment Cleaning
- Mold Cleaning
- Surface Preparation
- Mold Redemption
