Tear gas is a favorite of both military and the police. Worldwide, it is used every day, usually to suppress protesters and control crowds. Removing tear gas residue is a complex and daunting task.
That being said, tear gas residue can be seriously hazardous to your health, so we recommend that you call U.S. Trauma and Crime Scene Restoration Equinox Biohazard Remediation to take care of it as soon as possible.
WHAT IS TEAR GAS?
In order to properly understand the tear gas removal procedures, we need to understand what it is. The most common gas used by police in the US and elsewhere is CS gas. Named for the two inventors, Ben Corson and Roger Stoughton, 2-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile, CS gas was created in 1928 and was tested during the 1950s and 1960s.
Today’s tear gas formulations include several different compounds:
- Chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS)
- Chloroacetophenone (CN)
- Dibenzoxazepine (CR)
- Oleoresin Capsicum (OC or pepper spray)
CS gas is not technically a gas. It is shot or thrown in canisters that contain a solid material that turns to a gas when exposed to air and moisture. The resulting chemical reaction makes the canister hot and fills the air with a noxious gas.
A Bit of Tear Gas History
The first tear gases were made during World War I when all sides were using chemical weapons. The Germans dropped the first tear gas, but it was so ineffective, the British troops had no idea they were being attacked. Two years later, in 1916, they had perfected a gas irritant that blinded French troops who were quickly surrounded by German troops.
CLEANING UP TEAR GAS
Tear gas cleaning requires the knowledge and equipment of trained professionals. A professional cleanup company has access to personal protective equipment (PPE), specialized cleaning agents, and the ability to determine whether or not a scene has been completely restored.
The harmful effects of tear gas residue can persist for months if not properly cleaned. No matter how clean you think a site is, tear gas can penetrate every corner, nook, and cranny, and can even be propelled through the HVAC system. Cleaning the tear gas residue that you can see is only half the battle.
