Soda blasting is the environmentally friendly cleaning method that uses a form of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) in place of other non-environmentally friendly, and health hazardous blasting medias like sand.

In recent years one of the most popular and effective uses for soda blasting is mold remediation and fire damage restoration.  Many  and fire damage restoration companies use soda blasting as an efficient and eco-friendly cleaning method.

It is common for mold to develop in damp places of a home.  Typical mold remediation jobs involve mold removal in attics and crawl spaces, where the conditions are conducive to mold growth.  Some remediation companies use harsh chemicals or hand sanding to remove mold.  These types of solutions are not environmentally friendly.

Mold remediation and fire damage restoration companies using Soda Blasting will  benefit in many ways. Soda blasting quickly and efficiently removes mold, carbon and smoke damage without harming the underlying material and without harming the environment.  A great benefit of soda blasting is that it deodorizes the affected area.
