Soda Blasting

Expert Soda Blasting in Central Maine

If your house has a mold problem, you’re not alone. Because mold reproduces by discharging microscopic spores into the air, it can travel far and wide, finding a home wherever moisture and a food source are present. Mold can and does take hold in basements, bathrooms and other parts of the house that are high in moisture and low on ventilation.

Keith Trembley Home Solutions are your local experts for all your mold removal needs in Bangor, Portland, Lewiston and the nearby areas. Call us today to get an estimate on mold services for your home!

Soda blasting is gentler than sandblasting, but just as effective

The home remedy for removing mold has always been treatment with household bleach, followed by vigorous scrubbing to remove mold deposits. But this treatment isn’t effective or even feasible in many situations. When mold is present on building materials like joists, sheathing and wallboard, the bleach-and-scrub strategy isn’t likely to remove all the mold. Another disadvantage with this method are the toxic conditions it creates: chlorine fumes and acidic overspray that can damage finishes and materials.

Don’t worry; there’s a better way. Soda blasting is a compressed air cleaning technique that’s similar to sand blasting, but gentler and cleaner. As with sandblasting, soda blasting involves blowing particles against the surface to be cleaned, using compressed air. But granular baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is used as the cleaning medium rather than sand. Soda blasting has proven its worth in many cleaning and stripping applications –from mold removal and paint stripping to graffiti removal and boat hull cleaning.

Advantages of soda blasting mold removal

  • Safe. Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a natural material that won’t harm humans or animals. It’s used in toothpaste, deodorant and baking recipes.
  • Fast. When operated by an experienced technician, a soda blasting rig can remove large deposits of mold very quickly.
  • Affordable. Soda blasting typically doesn’t cost much more than manual mold removal methods that yield incomplete results while creating more of a mess.
  • Effective. Soda blasting doesn’t rely on abrasive action to clean and strip a surface. Instead, mold deposits fragment and fall away when sodium bicarbonate particles shatter upon contact with the surface being cleaned.
  • Deodorizing. Baking soda has the desirable quality of absorbing unpleasant odors –including the nasty smell of mold and mildew. Plus, baking soda is a natural mildewcide; it can help prevent mold from returning.
  • Minimally messy. After the soda blasting process is complete, excess baking soda can be vacuumed and/or wiped up with damp rags.

Don’t forget: Mold indicates a moisture problem

To permanently solve a mold problem, you have to do more than remove mold deposits. It’s also necessary to lower humidity levels and/or eliminate water leakage that creates favorable conditions for mold. Fortunately, Keith Trembley can follow-up mold removal with expert waterproofing and dehumidification services to help prevent mold problems from recurring.
