Sabre Announces Roll-Out of Permanent Solution to Chinese Drywall Problems

SLINGERLANDS, N.Y., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Sabre Technical Services announced today the roll-out of its chlorine dioxide-based solution to the problems experienced by U.S. homeowners and builders whose homes are impacted by contaminated Chinese drywall. Sabre's solution is an adaptation of its patented chlorine dioxide decontamination process to deal specifically with individual residences and smaller buildings.

Sabre has a long history of safe and effective applications of chlorine dioxide in a wide variety of industries, including water treatment, food processing and oil and gas. That expertise and technology has now been applied to the problems related to contaminated drywall, providing a permanent solution.

The Sabre Process

Since 2001, Sabre's patented chlorine dioxide technology has been internationally recognized for its effectiveness in eliminating contamination from buildings. Sabre successfully used its process to eliminate anthrax contamination from the Hart Senate Office Building, two Post Office Distribution Centers and several other buildings. In 2005, the National Academy of Sciences determined chlorine dioxide, as applied using Sabre's proprietary process, to be "the standard for the decontamination of buildings."

Sabre has successfully treated hundreds of large structures for pervasive mold, pathogens, viruses and other sources of contamination, providing permanent solutions to the critical problems facing these structures. They have included an 8 million cubic foot pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, a 1760-room, 400,000 square foot hospital in southern California (which was repopulated with patients and staff in less than a week -- just three days after Sabre completed the treatment), and a number of shopping centers, office buildings, restaurants, churches, condominiums and individual homes.

Chlorine Dioxide as a Solution to Problem Drywall

In recent months, Sabre has worked to adapt its chlorine dioxide decontamination process to an emerging problem in the southeastern U.S. - contaminated drywall. In certain homes and structures, particularly those exposed to temperature and relative humidity conditions common to the Southeast, this drywall has been identified as the source of problematic gases which give off a characteristic "rotten egg" smell and cause a blackening and corrosion of copper. A recent study funded by the Florida Department of Health determined that the contaminated drywall is releasing a variety of reduced sulfur gases, including hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl sulfide and carbon disulfide.

Chlorine dioxide permanently solves this problem because it is a highly penetrating gas that seeps into building materials and wall cavities, reacting instantaneously with reduced sulfur compounds converting them to safe, inert compounds, eliminating odors and stopping corrosion. Sabre recognized that its proprietary chlorine dioxide treatment process, which has been perfected through the successful decontamination of hundreds of structures, could be used as a permanent solution to drywall challenges. Accordingly, Sabre has adapted its equipment to specifically address individual residences and smaller buildings.

This process is effective and efficient. It provides a permanent solution to problem drywall and allows residents to reoccupy their homes in less than one week, from start to finish. The Sabre chlorine dioxide treatment process is safe, permanent, costs less than the alternative "rip and rebuild" process, and takes significantly less time.

About Chlorine Dioxide

Chlorine dioxide has been safely used in a variety of industries for decades as a powerful selective oxidant and an EPA-registered broad-spectrum microbiocide. It is used in hundreds of municipal water treatment facilities in the U.S. for controlling bacteria and odors, including odors from reduced sulfur compounds. It is used in food processing for odor control and as a food contact microbiocide that has organic food status (e.g. baby carrots are rinsed in it to control bacterial growth, and chickens are rinsed in it to eliminate salmonella and other pathogens).
