I think it would be the perfect medium for cleaning exhaust systems via blasting. The problem is the buy in cost and recouping expenses. You would have to charge substantially more per cleaning and restaurant owners are notorious for wanting work done cheaply.

I do Dry Ice Blasting but have yet to try it on Commercial Kitchens (restuarants). I've done a little but of 'grease' in the past, works pretty good - have to control the spray though, you basically 'move' the grease. I've cleaned a couple Industrial compressors that had grease/grime on them - used a little de-greaser to 'loosen' things up and it worked well enough.

I may be attempting a kitchen next week - update after I do.

True - Dry Ice Blasting is not cheap - media is fairly expensive so it's charged accordingly - most Co's charge about $200/hr when blasting.

I would love to see pictures also. It would seem to me that dry ice would need to be sprayed directly on the grease for cleaning... so you would need unobstructed path. What would be great is to see a youtube vid on it. Does anyone have a good reference?

Hello all,
Generally Dry ice is pure solid carbon dioxide. It goes directly from a solid to a gas in some process. It generally used for cleaning purpose such as to remove floor tiles, to retard chemical, catalyst and to blast clean fire damaged buildings.

Dry ice is solidified carbon dioxide. It can also be used for cleaning purpose which is called Dry Ice Blasting. This method is one of the most environment savvy methods of cleaning.
