Coldsweep performs dry ice blasting on Park City home
Coldsweep, Inc. performed dry ice blasting on a home located at 1403 Eagle Way in Park City on July 19 and 20.
The home was originally a barn built in 1650 somewhere in Europe. The homeowners had the barn disassembled, shipped to Park City and re-assembled. Could this be the oldest building in Park City?
They will be removing tar and other contaminants from some of the timbers. The timbers were power washed before the structure was re-assembled, but the owners hired Coldsweep to clean the timbers more thoroughly now that they have lived in the home for a few years.
The dry ice blasting process is like sand blasting without the mess because the dry ice disappears on impact and is non-abrasive to many surfaces.
