Brick & Masonry Cleaning with Dry Ice Blasting

Brick & Masonry Dry Ice Cleaning

Prized for its effectiveness at cleaning industrial equipment like turbines, SCR catalysts, HRSG units, reactor tubes, and motors, dry ice blasting is also an ideal method of restoring brick and masonry.

Busy building owners, general contractors and masons rely on the expertise and experience of the Polar Clean team to quickly, safely and cost-effectively remove stubborn dirt, grime, mold, and soot from brickwork and masonry using dry ice blasting and other methods.

Best Results for Brick Cleaning

Restoring brick to its original beauty can require specialized cleaning solutions and processes tailored to the job. Among the factors to consider:

  • What type of brick is present?
  • What is the condition of the mortar?
  • What type of dirt and staining needs to be removed and how well is it adhered?

Is Dry Ice Blasting Right for Your Brick?

Depending on the conditions we find, we will choose the right combination of tools and cleaning methods to ensure the best results: abrasive, wet abrasive, and sponge blasting can be used in addition to dry ice blasting to restore a wide variety of brick and masonry.

Removing Paint from Brick

We are also skilled at paint removal. Removing paint from brick surfaces typically requires abrasive blasting. Occasionally, a combination of both dry ice and abrasive blasting is most effective: dry ice to minimize any damage to the brick itself and abrasive blasting for more aggressive cleaning where needed.

Dry ice blasting can remove:

  • Loose and flaking paint and coatings
  • Accumulated dust and grime, mold and soot
  • Carbon from fire damage

Abrasive blasting is required to remove firmly-adhered paint and sticky coatings.

Heights: No Fear Here

Polar Clean can also provide aerial lifts or scaffolding services to work at heights, with an experienced and well-trained trained team that can safely work wherever needed.
