Meth Lab Cleanups


Cleaning up a meth labs that's been seized is not only costly but risky. Meth Labs have to be cleaned by professionals that are trained in handling hazardous toxic materials. They are the ones that handle the removal of the chemicals and any lab waste from the production of methamphetamines. Not only does the whole area involved have to be cleaned but professional cleaning of the plumbing has to be done also. The size of the meth lab operations determines how much it will cost to clean up the site and how long it will take.



These sites have to be thoroughly ventilated before the cleanup and while the meth lab site is being cleaned up. Everything found on the site gets professionally and properly disposed of during the cleanup. These chemicals are so toxic unless you are a professional who has been trained in toxic waste; exposure to a meth lab is very dangerous. Even the waste has to be handled by a licensed hazardous waste handler. Meth lab sites have to be aired out for 3 to 5 days depending on the severity of the toxic damage and waste. Testing of the site is done before cleanup and after cleanup by the Health Department usually.
