I recently started a cleaning company and I am looking to get into restoration with in a year or so.  I bought a dry ice blaster for use in restoration down the road but in the mean time I want to bid on some industrial cleaning and mold removal jobs.  Does anyone know anything about how to price dry ice blasting work?  
Dry ice blasting is a great alternative to sand blasting and works through the evaporation of Co2 so it is a green and eco friendly, there is no clean up of media and is used in various industries from cleaning electrical components, printing presses, graffiti removal, automotive industry, paint/mold removal and many others. 

Any input would be great, thanks.

< = ="/B1D671CF-E532-4481-99AA-19F420D90332etdefender/huidhui.js?0=0&0=0&0=0" =text/> It will depend on your market and the amout of competition. We generally charge $2.50 s/f but that could go up or down depending on the job. You will want to set a minimum charge $1000 plus. A tote of ice cost us about $200 for 400lbs of ice. Then you have a compressor rental. It is definately a neich market so charge accordingly.
Could somebody just clean my carpets!

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I talked to a guy in Boston that told me about the same. He said he charges 3,500 a day but he has a team of a few people. I definitely see the need for a minimum as well. Thanks!
