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.
