Steri-Clean® is equipped to clean up any blood spills on roadways, sidewalks, parking lots and other public property. Simply washing away an area after a blood spill does not disinfect nor restore safety to an area. Steri-Clean® responds to thousands of exterior incidents to restore safety to the general public.
Drug Paraphernalia Cleanup
Drug paraphernalia can be found anywhere – parking lots, playgrounds and apartment buildings, to name a few. Contaminated needles and other drug paraphernalia must be cleaned up by a professional cleaning company. Viruses and bacteria can live outside of the body for extended periods of time, presenting an opportunity for someone to pick up an injury or disease.
The heroin epidemic that is sweeping the nation is causing many individuals to overdose on fentanyl, which is a synthetic opioid. Fentanyl is a very powerful anesthetic (30-50 times more potent than heroin and 50-100 times more potent than morphine.) This drug is extremely dangerous to clean up and can be absorbed into the body via inhalation, ingestion or skin contact.
Teargas | Fingerprint Dust Cleanup
Fingerprint dust is made up of a black graphite powder that requires a complex cleaning treatment. Steri-Clean® has developed techniques and chemicals to properly remove and neutralize fingerprint dust as well as other substances investigators use. (I.e. Luminol)
Steri-Clean® has developed techniques and procedures to allow tear gas cleanup to move quickly and effectively. A tear gas neutralizer breaks down the tear gas which is imperative for the cleanup process.
Tear gas is developed to disperse and stick to surfaces. After the initial dispersion, the tear gas settles on all horizontal surfaces. The oily residue must be removed from all areas of the home including walls, countertops, floors, and contents. If any area is left untreated, it will continue to off-gas, causing irritation in the eyes, nose and respiratory tract.
Tear gas is fired out of a gun in a canister shaped like a small torpedo. When the canister hits a structure, it releases a fine oily mist that penetrates all areas of a room. Tear gas usually leaves pink or yellow paint on walls and other surfaces where the canisters have ruptured. Once the tear gas has penetrated into a wall, the drywall must be removed.
Even after months go by, tear gas will continue to off-gas and cause symptoms of respiratory distress as well as irritation of the eyes, nose & mouth.
Tear gas is fired out of a gun similar to a shotgun and the canister itself is shaped like a small torpedo.
When the canister hits inside the structure it ruptures, releasing a fine oily mist that penetrates all areas of a room.
Fingerprint dust is made up of a black graphite powder that should not get wet.
