At Ridgeview Baptist Church, we performed soda blasting procedures as a restoration method.
Soda blasting is the use of bicarbonate of soda, also known as baking soda, in conjunction with compressed air for the removal of fire damage, smoke damage, mold damage caused by water damage, or any other coating. The process is abrasive, but relatively gentle, and can be used on virtually any surface. As well as being surface friendly, soda blasting is environmentally friendly, it is an eco-friendly, nontoxic and nonhazardous alternative to other cleaning and stripping methods. Additionally, soda blasting leaves a thin film of white powder dust on the surface being cleaned that helps to inhibit the formation of rust on metal for several months after treatment.
