Green contaim in the air...help
    #3306025 - 11/01/04 07:59 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, so I finally got around to cleaning out my old contaim jars. Everything is going fine. They are all put in a large tub of water and bleach. With gloves on I dunk them to get as much water and bleach in them. After a hour of soaking I go back in and push them under the water and unscrew the lids. This has always worked fine. Afterwords I can then take the soaked chucks and toss them in the trash or yard.

Here is where the problem occurred. Most of the jars were either light contaminated or just suspect. One on the other hand had turned completely dark green. When it was opened the rushing in of water and the rushing out of the contamination made green dust clouds. I have never run into a contamination that was so powdery, so this has never happened before. I quickly put the top on the bin. Sprayed oust in the air. Turned on the attic fan and put a hepa unit near it. Also washed and changed clothing.

The question is, am I or my roommate in any danger due to possible physical contact, breathing it in, getting in eyes or mouth. Pretty much anything? If so what kinda signs should I be out the lookout for? Lastly, now how do I safely get rid of the tub and few jars left in it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

ok, keep it in the bin, go outside to an area where you can work in the open with a breeze to your back, to blow any offending spores away from you, not toward. Basically use gloves if you got them, crack the lid open and fling out the cake with one swift shake, you may need to break them loose like you would if birthing them for the terrarium. Just use common sense and use the wind.

I'm pretty sure it is just a basic green-blue mold. Luckily I didn't breathe enough in to start coughing. Cleaning like crazy now, just afraid it will get in the walls. It is a full quart that is now floating covering all of the water in the bin. Hopefully the bleach kill it all in time. It is to heavy right now to carry it outside with all the water in it without spilling it. Will dumping it outside kill it over time or just cause it to spread outside?

I normally catch things before it gets this far but this one spread really fast.

Cool, was finally able to get it outside and dump it in the pouring rain. Hoping the bleach wont hurt my grass.
