The word “lab” might conjure up an image of a clean, sanitized environment, but former drug labs are anything but sterile. When an area is contaminated with drug residue, it can cause serious health problems in both humans and pets. These health effects can include: behavioral changes, neurological harm, and kidney and liver damage. Young children are particularly susceptible to these adverse health effects.
If left untreated, hazardous chemicals can linger for months or years after the lab is gone, and can wind up entering the body by inhalation, ingestion, or absorption through the skin.
If you know that your property has been through a drug bust, but you don’t see any residue, you may think this means you’re safe. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
Drug residue is an invisible vapor that clings to every surface in a home, including:
- Building structure
- Upholstered furniture
- HVAC system
- Wells and septic
These chemicals are tough to tackle. You can’t simply paint over them, and consumer-grade antibacterial cleaners won’t do the trick either.
Given all of the health risks associated with drug labs, it is important to take the proper steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your loved ones. Whether it’s your own home that may be contaminated or a rental property, drug lab decontamination brings you peace of mind.
