Dry ice blasting is now the preferred cleaning process for many industries. Compared with the other cleaning processes for example, such as sand blasting, dry ice blasting is more efficient, safer for the people and the machines and equipment, produces less waste and less expensive. These advantages are of course dependent on the company or the contractor. Some ice blasting companies for example, do not have expert technicians so the whole process is not done properly. In this case, the equipment would not be cleaned as it should. Moreover, some equipment requires expert blasting work. Generators for example can be easily damaged. It is therefore necessary to contact several dry ice blasting companies so that you can find the most capable one for your equipment.
When it comes to finding a good dry ice blasting contractor or company, the easiest way to go about it is to create a list of several dry ice blasting companies and compare them. Ask them for a quotation for what you require. You now have a basis for comparison in terms of price. Compare their scope of work so that you can see exactly what they will provide and for how much. Of course the price should not be your only consideration. It is just important to have this first so that you will know the standard price for what you require.
Next, check the dry ice blasting companies in terms of how long they have been doing ice blasting. Some ice blasting companies have been in the business longer than others so they more experience. What you should do however is to ask if the dry ice blasting companies have experience in your type equipment or machine. Take note of the one that has experience with your type of machine. At the same time, if the dry ice blasting companies have been in the business for years, you can also trust them to do a good job even if they have not handled your type of equipment or machine. The thing to remember here is to find a company that has more experience. If it is possible, talk to their clients and see if they are satisfied with the dry ice blasting companies. In line with this, it is important to talk to the dry ice blasting companies about their technicians. Ask them if their technicians are trained in dry ice blasting. Ask them if they can assign you technicians who are more skilled and have more experience.

Since you will be requiring their services regularly, you want to find a company that offers competitive rate. This does not mean that you choose the cheapest, just find one that offers a balance in rate and quality of service.
