Foul smell in Duval County found to be permeating from broken pipe

A large Duval County Health Department office located in Florida will be tested for air contaminants for a third time since a chemical leak seeped into the walls of the facility on January 13, 2012, reports

Employees have continued to complain about an odor after a plumbing line from a laboratory broke inside a wall. The drainpipe was connected to a lab sink regularly used to dispose chemicals from water tests, according to the source.

The fluids from the pipe collected in puddles in the wall on the first floor, and a foul odor permeated from the inside.

Cleanup crews who are deployed to resolve toxic situations like the one seen in the Duval County building may want to stock their shelves with the proper absorbent equipment. The XSORB Acid Neutralizing Absorbent Bag is a top-of-the-line device that safely neutralizes caustic spills.

XSORB Acid Neutralizing Absorbent Bag is a non-leaching formula that turns a leaked liquid substance into a dry material. After cleanup crews use the absorbent device, the remains can easily be swept up and thrown away.

XSORB Acid Neutralizing Absorbent Bags would help cleanup crews quickly eliminate the foul smell in the Duval County facility.
