Tear Gas Clean-up

Pink paint or Tear Gas?

At SERVPRO of Palm Springs and SERVPRO of Indian Wells we can also assist with crime scene clean-up.

In this picture we see a shot of a wall in a residence that has been hit with a tear-gas canister.

Tear gas presents certain challenges when being cleaned. The first of which is to identify which gas has been used.

There are 15 separate compounds that are used as tear-gas.

Some of which can be cleaned with dry approaches, others, require wet cleaning.

Additionally, if you are vacuuming up a tear-gas damage, be mindful of proper ventilation in the structure. No breaks in hoses and that the site is properly ventilated.

Finally, when cleaning contents that have been affected, remember that they too must be cleaned outdoors or on a downdraft table.

Call SERVPRO, "Like it never even happened"
