Methamphetamine Labs – The True Hazards

Methamphetamine labs are more than just dangerous and illegal biohazard scenes. They always leave a dangerous mess and huge environmental hazards that must be cleaned up. Bio Clean Services offers meth lab clean up in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.  This growing epidemic is huge and can be found anywhere from multi-million dollar homes in metropolitan areas to the most remote rural areas you can get to.

Many of the areas we service are ranked among the highest meth lab production states in the nation. The rate of seizures in meth labs has grown tremendously over the past 3 years and is continuing to steadily rise.

The growth of meth lab popularity may be attributed to the ease of “cooking” the dangerous and highly addictive drugs. Anyone can use pseudoephedrine, household chemicals and a plastic soda bottle to produce the drug. The problems lie in the hazards associated with the drug cooking. These methods can cause explosions that can blow holes through walls, start fires and contaminate large areas.

Bio Clean Services is professionally trained in the clean up and removal of these bio hazards. Our services, when performed, remediate an area to a safe, disinfected state with any trace of the drugs existence eliminated. Some meth houses may not need the entire residence decontaminated, just certain rooms or areas where levels of certain toxins exceed state law. We assess the areas and a cleanup plan is crafted. Any porous materials, such as carpet, must be removed. Decontaminant is applied. When the cleanup is completed, another test is conducted to make sure the levels are acceptable to what regulations consider safe.

Certain states have funds set aside for the cleanup of these scenes however, depending on the state, the cleanup cost may be the responsibility of the property owner. Contact us today for more information about these and other services we provide.
