The Cryogenic Institute of New England, Inc. recently completed a historical renovation project on the second floor of 89 Shrewsbury Street. The objective was to remove coatings of paint from the brick walls using dry ice blast cleaning. Additionally, a few sections of the painted ceiling needed to blasted down to bare wood.
In 2007 we dry ice blasted the third floor of 89 Shrewsbury Street. The new tenants of the second floor liked the third floor results. As a result, they opted to have the same dry ice blast cleaning process completed on the second floor. Dry ice blast cleaning is very effective in removing layers of paint from brick surfaces. The blog post below has pictures of the brick walls before and after.
While the project was in process, I stopped by the work site and made a video. The video shows dry ice blasting of bricks in progress. This was one of the last areas to be cleaned using dry ice blast cleaning. The video can be seen below.
