The Polar Clean Advantage

Dry ice blasting is an effective, versatile and water-free method that is particularly well-suited for restoration projects. Because dry ice (CO2) pellets sublimate on contact, dry ice blasting leaves no secondary debris and requires little cleanup. The ability to adjust the blasting pressure for surfaces as delicate as electrical panels also makes dry ice blasting a good fit for restoration work.

The Polar Clean team utilizes a wide range of other cleaning methods as well and employs a careful assessment process for determining the best method, or combination of methods, for each application.

Our work with restoration contractors includes a wide variety of settings where we bring additional certifications and expertise in working at heights and confined spaces, among other specialized training.
