Methamphetamine and other drugs are dangerous to take and dangerous to make. If you have encountered a meth lab, extreme caution must be taken. The cooking process leaves a toxic residue that can permeate walls, upholstery, furniture, and HVAC systems. The cleaning of a drug lab must be done by a trained specialist to avoid injury and even death. PureOne Services is a certified and insured math lab cleanup company, specializing in meth testing and drug lab decontamination. Call the restoration specialists at PureOne Services to clean the remains of a meth lab and remove associated residue, and breathe easy again!

Dangers of Meth Labs

The dangerous residue that is a byproduct of “cooking” drugs can linger in the HVAC system, furniture and walls of a building for a long time, causing serious health problems. It can penetrate the body through absorption from the skin, ingestion or inhalation from air particles. Common symptoms of exposure to these toxic substances include neurological impairments, kidney damage, difficulty breathing and behavioral changes The very young and the elderly are most susceptible to these issues.

When these items and areas become contaminated, they become hazardous to people and pets alike and can cause serious health problems. The potentially deadly chemicals left behind 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. Porous items like upholstered furniture and carpets can absorb and hold onto the residue until they’re properly decontaminated! And on top of the risk of direct harm, meth labs are also at risk for explosion and fire.

Exposure to meth residues can cause health effects like behavioral changes, neurological harm, and kidney and liver damage. Young children are at particularly high risk of adverse health effects for a number of reasons. Unless they’re at daycare, infants and toddlers spend much of their time at home, where they can come into contact with those contaminated surfaces while playing. And because they consume more oxygen while growing, they are also more at risk of inhaling those airborne pollutants.

If a residence or property has played home to a drug lab, it requires professional evaluation and sanitation before a public health official can declare it habitable. You should never try to eliminate these health hazards yourself—not only are you risking further damaging the home or structure, but you’re also risking your own wellbeing! Instead, call in a professional cleaning crew.
