Chemical Spill Odors in 
Administrative Offices
Project #2168

An accidental chemical spill took place in a 4-story NASA office complex in Florida. The incident took place on a late Friday afternoon and the building was evacuated. 

The chemical had been safely removed and the Industrial Hygienist had determined that the facility was completely safe to be reoccupied by the workers yet the odor still lingered. 

The building windows and doors were opened to circulate the air but the odor remained. 

The concern was that the employees would object to working in the facility due to perceived health issues. 

The Environmental Health Manager located BioWorld via the Internet, called for information, and requested immediate shipping of the BioWorld Odor Neutralizer (BON) and a fogging unit. 

FedEx delivered the product on Saturday morning. A 5-gallon unit of BON was fogged into the HVAC intake for approximately 2 to 3 hours. The odors were completely mitigated and the facility was in condition to be reoccupied without losing any workdays or lost productivity.
