Houses formerly used to produce or ‘cook’ meth puts residents at considerable risk of serious health issues, some occurring almost immediately after taking residence. Some have almost immediately experienced short-term health problems including shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, migraines, skin irritation and respiratory difficulties and because children are small with developing bodies and are predisposed to play on the ground and put things in their mouths, they are especially vulnerable to adverse health risks from meth contaminants.
Because of the sheer volume of chemicals used to produce methamphetamine, including pseudoephedrine, acetone, hydrogen chloride, phosphine, petroleum distillates and methylamine, the appropriate cause of action must be adhered to when decontaminating a property used as a meth lab. The often-crude, home-cooking method spreads these dangerous toxins and gasses to every inch of the house, not just the room meth production occurred. The carpets, walls, furniture, curtains and window fixings, air ducts and personal belongings all become contaminated and toxic.
Of all of the toxic chemicals which can be found in a house, methamphetamine is one of the hardest to remediate. When meth lab remediation technicians enter a meth lab, they will wear disposable suits, shoe coverings and gloves, full face masks and respirators. The alarming thing is, meth lab professionals estimate that about 90% of meth houses are never uncovered, and tenants and home owners may never learn about their homes’ toxicity until it is too late.
