This strategy hypothesizes a nonzero standard for spore contamination and modest pre- and post-remediation environmental sampling (in contrast, >5,000 negative environmental samples were taken after the fumigation of the Brentwood mail-processing facility [4]).The plan employs no sporicides, such as sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) or hydrogen peroxide, which can cause collateral damage to many hard surfaces, and does not discard carpets or furniture, which would generate profound solid waste problems.
