Tear Gas Removal & Cleanup Services
One of the most daunting cleanup tasks experienced by professional remediation companies like Aftermath is a tear gas cleanup. It does more than make a person cry; it will cause violent physical reactions and can be extremely difficult to completely eradicate from a home or commercial structure.
In the course of their duties, sometimes Law Enforcement personnel are forced to use tear gas and other non-lethal chemicals to subdue individuals involved in a volatile situation. Tear gas pellets or missiles not only damage property, but the residue they leave behind presents a serious health hazard. In some cases, dozens or even hundreds of rounds are fired into a structure to subdue a suspect.
Complete tear gas remediation of a home or business following the use of pepper spray (capsaicin) or tear gas, typically CN (2-chlorobenzalmalononitril) or CS (0-chlorobenzalmalononitrile) gas, requires particular equipment and trained service technicians. Improper remediation by inexperienced cleanup crews may result in inadvertent exposure to these irritants, causing rashes and allergic reactions which affect the mucous membranes and respiratory system. Medical research also suggests that exposure can also cause permanent damage to the heart and liver.

We perform structural remediation to remove damaged walls, floors and surface coverings, and carefully wash affected surfaces in the home to restore safety.
