Re: Soda Blasting For Mold Removal???
Posted by Mold Remover on 4/03/06
PD - You are correct in that soda blasting is a new method
being employed for mold removal. The environmentalists
somehow seem to believe that soda is both natural and
environmentally safe. I would not recommend anyone using
this method for mold removal. Soda is caustic, eats metal
surfaces, and is not an approved mold killer.
The only good thing it has going for it, is itís fast.
Thatís why you are seeing it used. Considering the other
cost effective remediation methods being deployed, soda
blasting is NOT the answer. Look into the latest chemical
remediation methods being used. This is the cost effective
and labor efficient answer for mold remediation.
