FACT: Illegal drugs such as methamphetamine, ecstasy and methcathinone are made in clandestine labs. These illegal drug labs create a number of health hazards.

Unfortunately, after the police and after the “bust goes down,” property owners, residents and city officials are left with a hazardous clean-up mess that is costly and requires professional remediation.
We can solve your problems with clandestine drug labs and their remediation, the tools, standards, and alternative methods for remediation.
We are specialists, in dealing with and cleaning up METH Labs.
Different chemicals or “recipes” are used for “cooking” methamphetamine or meth. Each uses different ingredients, with many chemicals used are also common in homes. However, the poor handling and disposal of these chemicals, as well as mixing incompatible compounds, can create hazards.
Hazardous chemicals can be formed during the “cooking” process, and contaminate a property after cooking meth. 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.
What happens after a methamphetamine lab is discovered?
When discovered, the local law enforcement agency and/or the Division of Criminal Investigations, 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.
