Many interior building problems are caused by the unwanted infiltration of natural elements, contaminants and pests from our outside environment, as with water, dust, dirt, insects, rodents and heat.These unwanted elements can be uncomfortable at best and cause disease and illness at worst.

Flood waters often contain elevated levels of contamination associated with raw sewage and other hazardous substances.  These can be left behind on surfaces once the water recedes and are almost impossible to entirely clean off.  When dry, they can become air-borne, possibly inhaled, posing a serious health risk. After drying and before enclosing the post-flood tainted surfaces, lock down and seal remaining surface contaminants with GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s GREEN coatings.

Disaster Debris Containment
What is Secondary Exposure after a Natural Disaster?
There are many toxic and hazardous materials released into the environment when a disaster strikes and buildings are destroyed. This is Primary Exposure and is unavoidable.  What is avoidable is making sure the materials are not re-released when cleanup begins, causing a Secondary Exposure.

What Causes Secondary Exposure?
Very often there are many hazardous materials used in buildings such as asbestos, lead based paint, heavy metals, etc. They are useful and not a problem when intact and properly maintained. When a natural disaster strikes, they are unavoidably released into the environment, becoming airborne and adding to the unfortunate consequences of the disaster. When the dust settles, these toxic hazardous materials are combined with the overall debris that needs to be cleaned up and removed. If precautions are not taken during the cleanup, these materials can be disturbed and re-released into the environment causing a secondary exposure.

How to Minimize and Prevent Secondary Exposure
Lock in the hazardous materials along with all debris through wet removal techniques with GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.’s (GEI) products when cleaning up. The MPE Multi-Purpose Encapsulant™ or PrepLESS Primer can be used to wet the surface, immediately stopping the release of contaminants and secondary exposure. As they dry, the products lock in contaminants making the debris safer for removal, transportation and disposal.  The debris either has to be stored in a landfill or incinerated. If the coated debris is taken to a facility for incineration, extensive testing prove that there will be nothing toxic released from GEI's biodegradable products when burned. This important feature adds to the overall logic of using GEI's products for the cleanup from natural disasters.

Damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant

On March 11, 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was damaged by the tsunami that resulted from the Tohoku earthquake, emitting a large amount of radiation due to a hydrogen explosion. GLOBAL Encasement, Inc., a U.S. Federal GSA Schedule Contract holder and the manufacturer of Green coatings that lock down and seal hazardous materials, quickly offered its assistance.

GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. rapidly dispatched a volunteer team of hazmat experts from the U.S.A. and Japan to assess how they could help. The team evaluated the situation and conducted a demonstration for TEPCO in Fukushima on May 21st 2011 by spray applying the coatings showing how to lock down the radioactive debris and help prevent secondary exposure to people and the environment. This demonstration proved the effectiveness of the extraordinary coatings and TEPCO approved their use over radioactive contaminated debris at the Daiichi-Nuclear Power Plant site.
