METH LAB CLEANUP | METH RESIDUE CLEANING
METH LAB CLEANUP SERVICES
Meth lab cleaning can involve a number of stringent and important steps to ensure the property is left in a non-hazardous, habitable state. The meth lab cleanup process involves both disposing of, and if possible, remediation of contaminated household items and structural elements. Meth Lab Cleaners Australia technicians are trained and certified to safety decontaminate the property and dispose of any contaminated furniture, house hold items, fixtures, carpets, wall sheeting etc. and provide independent, regulated environmental testing reports for the premises.
METH CONTAMINATION ON THE RISE
As the number of meth labs found across Australia rises, so too does the need to experienced, trained and professional Meth lab decontamination experts. Meth Lab Cleaners Australia offer a holistic and stringent service to assist in the clean up and remediation of any property affected by a meth lab.
As meth labs have an enormous waste to product ratio, approximately 6 parts toxic runoff to every 1 part of saleable meth, any property, which has been used to cook or create meth, will likely be left in a toxic and hazardous state. The scene will remain toxic indefinitely until the proper remediation has been done.
METH CLEANING IN RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
Although large and intelligent meth lab set ups may use commercial laboratory equipment, the vast majority are made up of general house-hold items such as thermoses, mason jars, bottles, batteries, cans, tubing and window screens. Meth cooks are extremely resourceful with the materials they source and use to produce the drugs, as well as locations used to cook. Most Meth Labs are found in residential properties, however, authorities have been finding an increasing number in motels, cars, motorhomes, sheds, abandoned buildings and even home-made tunnels and caves.
Although each Meth Lab Decontamination job has its own unique set of difficulties, almost all will be divided into primary and secondary contamination areas.
Typical primary areas of contamination include:
- Cooking areas: Gross contamination in these areas is always evident and can be caused by spills, fumes, explosions and gasses created during the cooking process.
- Disposal areas: Anywhere chemicals, by-products or materials used to manufacture methamphetamine are disposed of including toilets, sinks, drains, vents, chimney flumes, soil, water and groundwater including supplies, bins and septic systems.
- Storage areas: Meth Lab decontamination will also need to occur in areas the cook meth and drugs have been stored. Leaks, spills and open containers all have the possibility of cause contamination
Secondary areas of a meth lab contamination includes, but is not limited to:
- Locations adjacent, or near, to any primary area including hallways or high traffic areas
- Common areas in multiple dwelling structures and adjacent apartment including floors, walls, ceilings, carpeting, light fixtures, draperies and other textile products
- Common ventilation or plumbing systems in hotels and multiple dwellings
