Different chemicals are used for meth. Many chemicals used are common in homes. The poor handling and disposal of these chemicals, as well as mixing incompatible compounds, can create hazards.
Hazardous chemicals can be formed while making meth and can contaminate a property. Carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tile, or fabric may absorb spilled or vaporized chemicals.
Furniture or draperies may become contaminated. Outdoor disposal sites may also require evaluation and cleanup.
After a meth lab is discovered, the local law enforcement is responsible for making arrests and seizing the lab. Evidence is removed from the site and chemical hazard consultants are brought in by law enforcement to remove containers of hazardous chemicals related to the operation of the meth lab. Officials may also screen indoor air. Law enforcement may call child protective services if children are involved.
Envirotex works with federal, state, and local agencies. We utilize sophisticated remediation technologies while relying on our experience and comprehensive understanding of current regulations.
