Using dry ice machines to clean car engine compartments has now been applied by garages as well as car manufacturing companies widely

However, this method is still uncommon to many people.

Some are concerned about safety while others worry about whether or not it does an adequate job.

So, is dry ice cleaning good for entire car not just engine compartments?

In this article, Specco2 will look at all sides of the story and give you an answer that’s easy to understand.

Why you should clean your car periodically

Cleaning your car regularly will help to keep it running smoothly.

In addition to that, there are some great benefits from periodic car cleaning, such as:

Safe vehicle operation

While driving, safety is always a top priority.

Not only to protect yourself but also to protect those around you.

You should regularly clean your car for inspection if something wrong happens.

If you do not clean your car, stains and grease will form deposits on the body of the car.

Furthermore, they will stick to the engine compartment and make the vehicle unstable while en route. In some cases, it can even cause a fire.

Keeping the value of the car

Cleaning your car regularly will help you keep your car’s value from rapidly depreciating.

Over time, the value of the car will decrease depending on the distance as well as the appearance of the car.

Therefore, cleaning the car will help keep the car’s appearance in like-new condition.

Avoid rusty condition

As mentioned above, stains from dust, soil, and oil that stick on the car body for a long time will form rust marks if you do not handle them thoroughly.

This affects not only the aesthetics of the vehicle but also the safety of those driving it.

Is dry ice cleaning safe for car ?

At the present time, there are many solutions to cleaning cars. However, with our experience, Specco2 recommends using a dry ice blasting machine to clean cars because dry ice blasting:

  • Is non-abrasive and will not damage equipment
  • Is non-flammable and water-free
  • Produces no secondary waste
  • Safe and non-toxic

The dry ice blasting machine is not only safe, but it also helps to make your car become brand new like the first time you buy it.

Dry ice blaster is a cleaning device that uses dry ice and compress air at high pressure, often used to clean machinery and equipment, mold maintenance or maintain production lines.

Not only widely applied in the industrial field, dry ice blaster is also applied in preserving architectural works, historical destinations, or removing old wall paint.

Other benefits when cleaning car with dry ice blasting

When using a dry ice blasting machine to clean your car, you will notice the following benefits:

  • Absolute cleaning: this dry ice blaster can clean and maximize the surface of the vehicle, even the most annoying stains, and oils.
  • Do not use cleaning chemicals: When using dry ice blasting machine, you will not need other cleaning chemicals. This keeps you away from potential hazards. However, you also need to know how to set up dry ice cleaning machine for safer use.
  • No damage to the surface of the car: at the molecular size, dry ice can clean the car’s surface as much as possible without causing damage to the exterior paint. However, to ensure that the paint is not affected, you need to adjust a few necessary parameters before cleaning.
  • Environmentally friendly: the dry ice blaster is environmentally friendly. In addition to being clean and safe, it is also important to remember that dry ice is obtained as a byproduct of other industrial processes – i.e. it is made from reclaimed CO₂. It does not produce CO₂ or add CO₂ to the atmosphere and therefore does not contribute to the greenhouse effect.
