DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
PART 1. GENERAL
1.1 DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
A. Kitsap will be using Rose Environmental 's Kitsap County Givens
Basement Storage and Boiler Room Microbial Evaluation Report,
dated October 16, 2018, which will be distributed at the mandatory
site visit. The report has moisture and microbial findings within the
Givens Basement Stairwell and North Storage Area. Remediation
activities shall comply with this remediation protocol and, where
applicable, regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),
the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, and any
other applicable state or local regulations. Contractors performing
work under this protocol are solely responsible for protection of
health, safety, and the environment at the job site.
This document is not intended to be a technical analysis of the
structure for code compliance, habitability, geological survey, the
presence of hazardous materials, or property value.
B. Establish containment barriers preventing contamination of the
occupied spaces, other occupant furnishings and items, and the
C. Remove affected wallboard, plaster, and flooring.
D. Clean work area vertical and horizontal surfaces and those within
10 feet of containment work areas to be free of settled dust, dirt,
and debris. The use of biocides, bleach, sealants, encapsulants,
disinfectants, sterilizers, or other antimicrobial compounds are
neither required nor recommended, unless persons with severely
compromised immune systems (e.g., organ transplant patients) will
be occupying the building. The use of dilute detergents or
degreasers, such as Formula 409 or soap, however, may aid in
dust or dirt cleanup. Any other chemical use should be reviewed by
1.2 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:
A. This protocol pertains to removal and disposal of
contaminated building materials, and cleaning and
decontamination of remaining materials.
B. The requirements contained in this Section pertain to
CONTAMINATED MATERIALS ABATEMENT WORK and are for
the purpose of protecting employees and occupants against
exposure to potentially hazardous substances.
Contractors will make efforts not to select immune-compromised
workers such as workers receiving chemotherapy treatments,
recent organ transplant patients, or HIV patients, because they are
at greater risk of developing a disease than a healthy person.
Bearing this in mind, worker screening should be done in
accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
C. Contractor's Work Plan:
1. The brief Work Plan should be prepared in the form of a
checklist and should include specific procedures for:
a. Work area preparation and protection procedures;
b. Worker protection and decontamination
procedures, including normal removal and "spill"
c. Waste handling, packaging, and disposal procedures.
2. The Work Plan should contain sufficient detail so that a
skilled worker, by following the Plan, can perform acceptable
work in a safe manner to remove and dispose of the
contaminated GWB and associated materials, and to clean
and decontaminate remaining materials.
PART 2 PRODUCTS
2.1 RESPIRATORY PROTECTION EQUIPMENT:
A. The Contractor should provide personally issued and marked
respirators approved by the National Institute of Occupational Safety
and Health (NIOSH) and provide sufficient replacement cartridges for
respirators with disposable filters.

respirators with HEPA (Pl00) filter cartridges.
C. Use all respiratory protection in accordance with State of
Washington Dept. of Labor & Industries Washington State
Administrative Code (WAC) Chapter 296-842, Respirators,

(or equivalent) coveralls, disposable head and boot covers, chemically
resistant gloves (rubber dishwashing gloves or nitrile), hard-hats, safety
glasses or goggles for all workers engaged in contaminated material

Provide Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all hazardous chemicals used on-site
(there should be none).
2.4 POLYETHYLENE SHEETING:
All polyethylene sheeting used on-site should be 6 mil and meet or
exceed NFPA 701 standards for fire resistance.
PART 3. EXECUTION
A. Electrical Power: The Contractor should verify that the electrical
power to the affected components is deactivated, disconnected,
B. Decontamination Procedures: All personnel involved with
removal and/or handling of contaminated materials will
comply with the following decontamination procedures:
1. Establish a change area where personnel will don or
remove personal protection equipment (PPE);
2. Utilize assembly-line decontamination where used
equipment/gear can be disposed into approved waste
3. HEPA-vacuum the outside of work coveralls before leaving work
4. Remove disposable PPE materials and place in approved
disposal bags for disposal with removed contaminated
5. Proceed through decontamination stations and thoroughly
clean hands and exposed surfaces with soap, then rinse with
6. Prior to commencement of abatement, if applicable, all
salvageable personal belongings should be removed by the
Contractor from the work area to a temporary location for
cleaning. For non-porous surfaces (e.g., plastic, glass, metal),
and semi-porous surfaces (e.g. wood), the surfaces should
be cleaned with an appropriate detergent agent. For porous
surfaces that show no visible contamination or water
damage, the surfaces should be cleaned with a vacuum
equipped with High Efficiency Particulate (HEPA) filtration.
3.2 WORKER PROTECTION - Approved Work Plan procedures:
A. All personnel entering the work area should sign a daily log and
put on clean protective clothing.
B. Basic protective clothing should consist of coveralls, head and
boot covers, gloves, hard hats, safety glasses or goggles, and

A. The Contractor should ensure that workers performing the tasks
below are wearing approved coveralls, head and boot covers,
gloves, respirators and hard hats.
B. Pre-demolition preparations:
1. Isolate the work area: Seal the area from adjacent occupied

sheeting and duct tape; and seal air vents, if applicable, with
plastic sheeting and duct tape.
2. Place plastic sheeting below work areas to collected debris and settled
C. Remove and bag or wrap all contaminated materials and store
in work area in preparation for disposal.
D. Rose Environmental recommends removing GWB and affected
insulation to the designated height, and at least one foot beyond
the last visible extent of mold and water damage when cavity-side
surfaces are revealed during demolition of affected wall
E. Where feasible, removal and replacement of visibly moldy paper-
faced gypsum board is still the preferred remedial method.
However, where removal and replacement are not feasible due to
construction or building code restraints, Rose Environmental
recommends the following remediation-in-place procedure:
• Affected areas must be dried to background conditions and
moisture content verified prior to application of the following
• Visibly moldy areas shall be damp-wiped clean and vacuumed
with a HEPA- filtered vacuum.
• Application of a fungistatic primer shall cover all visibly moldy
areas. Acceptable primers include Zinsser Perma-White,
Fosters 42-42, or Sherwin- Williams Harmony Primer.
• A final inspection for dryness and completeness will be
conducted following remediation and primer application.
3.4 CLEANING OF WORK AREAS AND ADJACENT AREAS
Once all necessary materials have been removed from the containment
work areas, the Contractor shall thoroughly clean horizontal and vertical
surfaces to remove all settled dusts from horizontal and vertical surfaces
using damp-wiping and HEPA-filtered vacuuming.
Additionally, all surfaces within 10 feet of the containment work areas shall be
Use a brush attachment on the vacuum cleaner when cleaning
semi-porous and porous surfaces (to dislodge spores that may be
trapped in surface pores. If vacuum cleaning does not remove dusts
adequately, consider wiping surfaces with a slightly damp cloth.
Cleaning of work areas shall proceed from top to bottom. Damp-wipe
cloths shall be changed frequently to minimize redeposition of
contaminants. All used cloths shall be double bagged in 6-mil
polyethylene bags for removal.
Small amounts of mild, low-odor detergents (such as Formula 409,
Simple Green) may be used for cleaning. Biocides, including bleach,
fungicides, encapsulants, sealants, are not allowed without discussion and
approval by Rose Environmental.
