If you have discovered that there was a meth lab in a building that you owned it here in Norfolk, VA, it is important to first call the police and let them handle any arrests that need to be made. Then you can call a professional meth lab cleanup company to handle the cleanup, and you will not have to worry about having any blame cast on yourself.
However, we have often seen a problem happen when the owner was related to or knew the person who ran the meth lab. Instead of sending their friend to the authorities, they instead tried to handle the meth lab cleanup themselves and hoped that the word would not get out. The problem with this, of course, is that the area that the meth lab had been in most likely still has residual toxic materials. These materials will wreak havoc on you and your family and eventually you will need to call a meth lab cleanup company to remove them. At this point, the word will come out and you may become involved in the investigation due to the fact that you assisted in a criminal activity. So you are best off turning in your friend and getting the meth lab cleanup handled properly.
Norfolk, VA does not go lightly on people who assist with a meth lab. This is why even though it is tough, you need to make sure to alert the Norfolk, VA police of any activity that is going on and let them handle the problem instead of trying to take care of it yourself.
We hope that this has been a helpful resource for you in making the decision to notify the police before attempting a meth lab cleanup yourself here in Norfolk, VA. Even though this is a difficult situation, if you keep your head clear and make sure to follow all of the properly laid out procedures, you will be all right.

What can I say... Thank you! Your team arrived on time, treated my home with respect, finished the job on time and did what you said they would do. A++
Envirotex truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
Envirotex helped alleviate the stress associated with the flooding of our basement. Although the insurance adjuster was quick to get a company in there to rip out the carpeting and drag it out into our driveway (where it remained for several days), neither the adjuster nor the carrier was concern about the ensuing mold growth that we were seeing on the drywall and ceiling tiles. If not for the professional survey, analysis and report that you furnished detailing the extent of the mold contamination, the cause thereof and the work that was required to be performed, I am certain that we would still be fighting with the insurance company. Thank you, we are very glad that we had Envirotex in our corner!
