Is Tear Gas Dangerous?
Tear gas is not very fatal. But the health risks it poses are numerous. It contains toxic substances that leave behind a hazardous residue that covers everything near and exposed to it. If the area is not immediately decontaminated, it causes skin irritation and in some instances serious ailments such as motor control loss, respiratory problems, and liver and heart damage.
Spaulding Decon crew use the state-of-art and latest technology to thoroughly clean commercial and personal tear gas contaminated areas. Tear gas residue can take months to clear from a contaminated area.
Symptoms of Tear Gas Exposure
Tear gas contains several chemical compounds. All of them cause mucous membrane irritation causing coughing, tearing, rashes, pain, sneezing, and in some cases temporary blindness. If you are exposed to tear gas for an extended period of time, symptoms can recur and worsen.
This is especially damaging to individuals with respiratory problems and COPD. For this reason, you should not enter a building contaminated with tear gas until professionally trained and experienced tear gas cleanup experts safely cleans and remediates the facility.
How Does The Tear Gas Cleanup Process Work?
Tear gas is not that easy to clean as you may think. The tear gas particles are like fine talcum powder. Because of the intended purpose, it gets everywhere and blankets everything in near proximity. To clear and clean up tear gas contamination, our highly trained cleanup crew thoroughly and carefully washes all contaminated areas.
We use duct tape and plastic sheeting to seal off the areas already cleaned to prevent further contamination. It may take several passes to completely remove the residue, especially if there are porous or rough surfaces such as paneling and exposed brick walls.
Our crew uses propriety cleaning agents and personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure the highest standard of the service while strictly adhering to EPA, OSHA, and State Health Department procedures and guidelines.
Tear Gas Pellets
Besides cleaning tear gas residue, we equally assess the damage caused by tear gas missiles or pellets. Law enforcement officers sometimes fire hundreds of rounds of tear gas canisters into a facility to subdue an unruly individual or gain control of a violent situation. As a result, these pellets may penetrate the wallboard.
In such a situation, tear gas may find its way inside HVAC systems and inside walls. Complete and thorough remediation is necessary to remove residue and pellets from the furniture, walls, and floor that have been subsequently damaged by tear gas canisters.
If tear gas has penetrated your building’s air conditioning or heating ducts, we may be accompanied by a professional HVAC service provider to help in cleaning out and restoring your systems. Our rigorous tear gas cleanup techniques ensure that the facility will be safe to be inhabited again.
