Meth Lab Cleanup Service
Methamphetamine lab clean up, also known as meth lab cleanup, is often a lot more dangerous to clean up in terms of health risks than most CTS Decon projects. The poisons used to make methamphetamine include benzene, methylene chloride, trichloroethane, toluene, acetone, methanol, iodine and hydrochloric acid. These contaminants can cause health problems including respiratory problems, skin and eye irritation, headaches, nausea and dizziness.
During the meth cooking process, vapors are given off that can spread and be absorbed by nearby materials leaving a toxic residue that coats and infuses every porous surface and stays in the air when the structure is enclosed. Most of these poisonous substances can be absorbed through the skin, making meth lab clean up, one of the most dangerous tasks anyone can perform.
There is no quick cleanup process for meth lab property. Professionals trained to handle hazardous materials are generally called in to remove lab waste and any bulk chemicals. During this removal, every effort is made to air out the property for the safety of the removal crew. However, this short-term airing-out may not be sufficient to clear out all the contaminants from the air inside the structure.
After the cleaning and three to five days of airing-out, the property should be checked for re-staining and odors, which would indicate that the initial cleaning was not successful, and further, more extensive steps should be taken.
Plumbing and Re-painting
Painting affected surfaces should be considered, especially in areas where contamination was found. If there is any remaining contamination that cleaning did not remove, painting the surface puts a barrier between the contamination and anyone who may come Painting will cover up and “lock” the contamination onto the surface, reducing the chances that it would be released into the air.
Most waste products from meth labs are dumped down sinks, drains, and toilets. If a strong chemical odor is coming from household plumbing, do not attempt to address the problem yourself. Contact a plumbing contractor for professional assistance. If you suspect the septic tank or yard may be contaminated, contact the local health department.
