Tear gas, or riot gas, is often used by law enforcement officials to defuse dangerous situations. Despite the name, tear gas is not always completely gaseous. Some formulas include very fine powders that can coat every surface and sometimes include solvents or oils to ensure that the tear gas has the maximum intended effect.
When deployed in an enclosed space, tear gas does not dissipate like most gases. Instead, it leaves residue in the immediate area. Without proper cleanup, tear gas will continue to affect anyone in the area.
Exposure to tear gas can cause irritated eyes and nostrils, chemical burns, and respiratory problems including coughing and shortness of breath. Long-term tear gas exposure can cause lung problems, heart disease, and even death. Because of the components used in riot gas, it is extremely easy for tear gas to spread. This is especially true if it enters the HVAC system.
Since it can spread easily, removing tear gas requires attention to detail. This includes turning off HVAC systems, as well as covering vents. In each affected room, our tear gas cleanup and removal contractors will remove and dispose of any carpeting, upholstery and other porous materials as tear gas cannot be cleaned away from these materials.
Next, they will use specialized HEPA vacuums to remove every trace of powder residue remaining within the room. Using proprietary cleaning products, they will wipe down nonporous surfaces exposed to tear gas. Our contractors will repeat these steps for every affected room as many times as necessary, saving the HVAC system for last.
Tear gas can be extremely pervasive, causing lasting health issues if not properly addressed. Our professional cleanup teams are experienced in removing and sanitizing after an incident involving tear gas.
In addition to tear gas removal and cleanup, we also offer other biohazard cleanup services, including drug lab removal, suicide scene cleanup, infectious waste removal, and unattended death cleanup.

Sara and I want to let you know how much we appreciate the supportive and professional assistance from Restoration Local during our water damage crisis. It's a pleasure to see that there are still service companies that take the word "service" seriously. We highly recommend Restoration Local anytime.
Restoration Local helped me find a quality water restoration contractor fast. The contractor they connected me with was licensed & bonded, and held a A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. They were prompt and wasted no time getting our house (and life) back in order. My husband and I were so happy, we even recommended them to his parents. Great service!
My townhouse's sump pump was broken and 38 gallons of water ran into my basement and my neighbor's basement. Mold grew over the next couple of days after removing the damaged carpet from my basement. Restoration Local found a great local contractor who helped with the water cleanup and mold removal. Now I have a great man cave in my basement!
They're very personable and know what they're talking about. They'll even work with your insurance and give up front pricing over the phone.
They exceed all expectations and go above and beyond to make sure customers are completely satisfied. This is the only choice you need to make for a construction company
Our roof was leaking, we called a technician and they sent someone before the rain stopped. The roof was patched and remained this way until we had the entire roof replaced.
The technician was very prompt, and I was very pleased with their workers. They were all very knowledgeable and great people to work with in every way. I am satisfied with their work and i would recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic experience... I was having sinus headaches and infections for the longest time. I was also starting to get vertigo and was convinced that it had to be related to maybe presence of mold in my house, maybe in the attic or the basement. The technician checked the entire house and told me there was no mold but (60percent) very high humidity levels . He installed an industrial size dehumidifier for 3 days and explained that it is essential to keep temperatures low during the summer in order to avoid the high humidity and eventual formation of mold. I then looked on the internet and found resent research linking high home humidity to respiratory illnesses such as sinus infections and vertigo.
Unfortunately a pipe was broken in one of the bathrooms and caused a disaster. The guys were very friendly, quick and neat to work, achieving a very good result. Thank you very much! I definitely recommend this company
The Technician was very professional, on time, polite, and they went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer. They provided me with a free estimate, and scheduled services for the very next day. Work was done in a very timely manner, very professionally, and they left everything very clean and organized. My home no longer smells like mold.
