Meth Drug Lab Remediation

Meth lab clean ups require specialised forensic cleaning

Meth labs can be found anywhere, in hotels, restaurants, sheds, garages, storage units, caravans and in homes and rental properties. Whatever area has been used for this clandestine lab, the entire area requires a thorough decontamination.

This is because the residue, chemicals and pollutants left over from a meth lab will contaminate everything within the immediate area - all surfaces, floor and window coverings, carpets, drains, ventilation systems, furnishings, equipment and even the toxins remain in the air.

These chemicals can include lethal chemicals such as methanol, acetone, benzene, ammonia, hydrochloric acid and iodine. Unless specialised forensic cleaning procedures are followed to the letter, the toxic residue from these lethal chemicals will remain in the air and on the furnishings, as well as on all hard surfaces for years.

This means that if these toxins are not removed correctly, new occupants can suffer severe and ongoing health issues for many years into the future. For this type of biohazard cleaning you need expert help from a team of technicians who specialise in meth lab clean ups and biohazard removal.

Biohazard cleaning for Meth lab clean ups

The toxic chemicals left over from meth labs can enter your body via your skin when you touch a contaminated surface, via your lungs if you inhale these toxins or by ingestion, because you inadvertently consumed something that was contaminated with this lethal mix of chemicals.

 If your property has been used as a meth lab, then you must call in a specialist team of technicians to decontaminate the area, before you or your family enter your property. Under no circumstances must you enter or attempt to clean your property if it has been used as a meth lab.

In fact, the authorities will most likely prevent you from entering your property until it has been forensically cleaned by a professional meth lab clean up team and it is deemed fit once again, for human habitation.

When our technicians arrive at your property, they will decontaminate and sanitize all of the hard surfaces and if something cannot be sufficiently cleaned of chemical residues, will remove the items for disposal. Any bio hazardous material that is removed from the property must be disposed of in a safe way and there are Australian Standards that govern the transportation and disposal of toxic chemicals and the residue of meth labs.

Our technicians at National Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning have specialised training and years of experience in dealing with these types of biohazard clean ups and when we return your property to you, it will be safe for occupancy once again.

Finding out that your property has been used as a clandestine meth lab is a very overwhelming and distressing time. We understand your distress and your need for privacy and discretion and we will work with your insurance company to ensure that your property is returned to you as soon as possible.
