Warning: Before undertaking any meth lab cleanup efforts, it is imperative the you check whether your state/city/county requires licensing or specific protocols to be followed.
Properties used to produce methamphetamine will usually be found within a lab-like setting ("Meth lab"), including containers of chemicals, heat sources, and various types of lab equipment. Typically, after a lab is discovered by law enforcement, the bulk of any lab-related debris, such as chemicals and containers, is removed. However, it is possible that a small amount of contamination may be left on surfaces, such as sinks, drains, and ventilation systems, or in absorbent materials, such as carpets and furniture. Though found in small amounts, meth lab contaminants may pose health threats to persons exposed to them.
Many of the contaminants present during meth's cooking process can be harmful if someone is exposed to them. These contaminants can cause health problems including respiratory (breathing) problems, skin and eye irritation, headaches, nausea, and dizziness. Acute (short-term) exposures to high concentrations of some of these chemicals, such as those law enforcement officers face when they first enter a lab, can cause severe health problems including lung damage and burns to different parts of the body.
During the meth cooking process, vapors are given off that can spread and be absorbed by nearby materials. Spilled chemicals, supplies, and equipment can further contaminate non-lab items. It is a good idea to remove unnecessary items from the property and dispose of them properly. Items that are visibly contaminated should be removed from the property and may be disposed of in a local landfill.
