HAZARDOUS WASTE REMOVAL
Parker, Colorado

Construction on a residence ceased and the building sat idle for several years. During this time, pigeons were able to nest within the residence and create a nuisance health hazard. Pigeon guano was found on most horizontal surfaces and hard to reach locations.

BELFOR Environmental was responsible for cleaning all surfaces for biological contaminants. Services included:

  • Installation of critical barriers
  • Establishment of negative pressure
  • Construction of a decontamination area with a clean room, shower and equipment room
  • Abatement
  • Final visual inspection by a third-party Industrial Hygienist
  • Final clearance testing by a third-party Industrial Hygienist
  • Encapsulation of the residence after the clearance testing passed
  • Tear down and demobilization

The objectives of the project were to:

  1. Maintain the integrity of the building to prevent the migration of additional birds and other rodents from entering the residence;
  2. Prior to removal, all materials to be removed were wet down with a water and bleach solution (1:10) mixture to minimize any airborne dust potentially containing any vector borne organisms;
  3. Remove and properly dispose of all impacted materials;
  4. Obtain final clearance for biological hazards.
