US Industrial: Debunking Decontamination

Decontamination of toxic, chemical, and hazardous substances - What to expect

Let’s be honest; when you hear the word toxic, you’re almost always met with an immediate pang of anxiety and uncertainty. Luckily, with US Industrial, that doesn't have to be the case. To help you fully prepare your company both physically and financially, we’ve decided it’s time to clear up some facts.

Why would you need our decontamination services?

‘Decontamination’ doesn’t always refer to a massive toxic waste that looks as if it’s straight out of a post-apocalyptic movie. However, regardless of the size of the enclosure, we still pride ourselves on following the necessary safety protocols. We come into the picture when you do not have the resources, time, or equipment to safely remove hazardous substances. This includes everything from a thorough investigation and analysis, containment and secondary cleaning areas as well as transportation and safe disposal of chemical, pharmaceutical, and radioactive contaminants e.g. toxic, corrosive, hydrocarbon.

Decontamination is one of the most important aspects of commercial demolition

Decontamination and demolition go hand in hand. Frequently, people assume that decontamination services are only required when there has been an unfortunate accident. However, that is not the case at all. Before a demolition project can safely get off the ground, it’s essential that a professional company can accurately identify any chemical, toxic, and hazardous substances on a demolition site. This also goes well beyond just disposing of those substances safely. Even with the bulk of something like asbestos removed, traces will be found throughout the structure which would all be released into the atmosphere during demolition. This endangers the public and the demolition team working on-site, so a pre-demolition industrial clean has to go much deeper. Due to the intricacies of such a project, we believe that attention to detail and expert knowledge is paramount to the success of your demolition.

How will you know if all hazardous substances are removed?

Any industrial decontamination involving toxic or hazardous substances should be targeting a full 6-log kill; hospital-grade decontamination removes 99.9999% of targeted contaminants. We ensure that this level of decontamination is reached before continuing or finalizing the project.
