Lynch Completes Removal of Mercury Containing Rubberized Gym Floor

In June 2017, we reported that Dr. Lynch co-authored an article in the May/June Issue of “School Leader” addressing the technical challenges with managing mercury containing rubberized gym floors in one school district.

Dr. Lynch also designed specifications for safe removal of the mercury containing rubberized floor coverings from gym floors and is currently overseeing removal of these floors.  Through this, we have specialized knowledge of the characteristics of these rubberized gym floors and strategies for addressing them including safe removal techniques and testing and validation protocols.

As each gym’s configuration, floor composition, and HVAC system is unique, we believe our clients should engage an experienced and highly credentialed expert to help manage this issue. .

If your district has mercury containing rubberized gym floors, trust an experienced and highly qualified consultant with the scientific foundations to guide you through this complex issue.
