Do you run a busy food production facility with expensive machinery that you’d like to keep running for as long as possible? Don’t have enough time/employees to clean everything by hand? Find out if dry ice is the best solution to your facility’s cleaning needs!
1. It’s Safe to Use around Food.
The FDA recommends dry ice blasting for the cleaning of food processing equipment and production facilities. Dry ice is able to decontaminate surfaces infected with Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria. Help eliminate cross-contamination caused by allergens, such as nuts, by using dry ice cleaning to remove protein residues on food processing equipment.
2. You Can’t Afford to be Shut Down for Long
Too many times plants have to be shut down for weeks at a time for a proper cleaning, but that’s not the case with dry ice blasting. Why is dry ice cleaning so much quicker? Since there is no water, chemicals, or waste there is nothing extra to clean up besides vacuuming up the debris cleaned off of your surfaces.
3. You Need to Clean Multiple Surfaces
Dry ice blasting can handle almost all surfaces including wood, metal, and brick. Instead of spending money on multiple cleansing solutions or having to swap between methods for each surface, dry ice cleaning can transition seamlessly between surfaces to clean everything from your machinery to your ceiling.
4. You Have Small, Hard-to-Reach Spaces
There are many instances when you’d like to clean small corners and crevices, but a hand or cleaning tools won’t fit. You won’t have this problem with dry ice blasting, as it can clean the tiniest of spots quickly and efficiently.
5. You Want to Pay Your Employees for Production, Not Cleaning
When you have to add extra hours to an employee’s schedule, and paycheck, because cleaning the production facility becomes an extra day’s work, you’re diminishing your profitability as a facility. Manpower costs money, and since dry ice blasting can be done in a fraction of the time compared to conventional cleaning methods, you can save a lot of money this way.
