Tear Gas and Pepper Spray
Professional cleaning is necessary to remove all traces of tear gas and pepper spray which can penetrate into walls and other surfaces. Tear gas and pepper spray have a chemical makeup that causes them to linger long after they are used inside of a building.
24Trauma’s professional technicians will remove all traces of tear gas and restore the scene to its original state. Self-cleanup is not recommended and can be harmful if it is not completed correctly. Tear gas is an invisible irritant and if the area is not decontaminated, its presence can cause watery eyes and respiratory issues. The area in which the gas dispersed needs to be disinfected and sanitized, filters (if applicable) must be changed, and walls must be cleaned and wiped down. The substance must be extracted from the entire unit, not just the room(s) in which it the gas was used.
