Meth Labs? Sadly, Meth Labs are becoming quite commonplace as more and more unscrupulous entrepreneurs take advantage of the demand for methamphetamines by setting up labs in homes, factories, vans or anywhere they believe they can base their operations and fly under the radar.
Chemicals used in Meth Labs for the production of methamphetamines are highly toxic, commonly using substances like pseudoephedrine, acetone, and phosphine. We know the effect these illicit substances have on drug users, but spare a thought for unsuspecting home buyers, renters or employees who may end up on the premises of a former Meth Lab. Among the Short Term symptoms reported following exposure to these chemicals are migraines, fatigue, respiratory difficulties, skin irritations, nausea and dizziness.
Because the ingredients are cooked, the vapour is able to spread to every part of a home, affecting carpets, walls, air ducts, furniture, home contents and window furnishings. Part of the process involves scrubbing all surfaces, replacing carpeting, washing window furnishings etc. All treatments carried out are conducted in Full PPE gear, to protect the health and safety of our staff.
The risk to everyone involved following confirmation that a site has been a functioning Meth Lab is serious and for this reason, it is vital that professionals are engaged to eradicate the chemicals from the premises.
