Soda Blasting

Soda Blasting Before

Soda Blasting is a technique which uses sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to safely strip paint, rust, grease, surface corrosion, tar, graffiti, gum, mold, mildew and more from a multitude of surfaces. Used in dry form, it is non-flammable, non-hazardous and environmentally safe. Soda blasting removes: paint, oil, soot, mold, and other contaminants from substrates like glass, chrome and thin sheet metal. It also works on softer substrates like: fiberglass, wood, plastics, carbon fiber, and aggregate.

In 1972, New York State engineers were challenged with the daunting task of cleaning and restoring the Statue of Liberty without damaging the statue or the environment. The conventional methods in use at the time would not only damage the statue’s delicate copper plates, but would create harmful waste in the surrounding waterways. Soda Blasting was thus invented to accomplish the task of cleaning the statue, while keep surrounding environment safe.

We find that is it very effective for cleaning mold, as well as fire and smoke damage as it cleans and deodorizes. It is cost-efficient and eco-friendly.

 

We recommend Soda Blasting, as a non-destructive method of cleaning for: 

  • Industrial & food grade equipment cleaning
  • Stripping paint/paint removal
  • Industrial equipment maintenanceSoda Blasting
  • Rust removal
  • Graffiti removal
  • Building restoration and cleaning
  • Mold remediation and cleaning
  • Fire restoration
  • Decontamination
  • Cleaning delicate surfaces (glass, stainless steel, wood, and bearings)
  • Sculpture restoration

Soda Blasting has many benefits over traditional cleaning methods, including, but not limited to:

  • Water-soluble and environmentally safe
  • Eliminates the need for the use of toxic cleaning chemicalsSoda Blasting After
  • Neutralizes surface rust
  • Removes grease
  • Does not produce thermal sparks or heat buildup
  • One-step cleaning and de-coating process
  • Can be done while other machines and process are in operation
  • Equipment is transportable
