Meth, short for Methamphetamine, is an extremely powerful stimulant that directly affects the central nervous system. Meth is categorized as a man-made drug and can be ingested a numerous number of ways. Meth is cooked using a combination of normal everyday chemicals that are sold at your local grocery store. The easy access to ingredients has caused this stimulant to become one of the most severe widespread epidemics known to man, ruining the lives of everybody it comes in contact with.
The demand for meth has become so much greater in the past decade that meth cookers and dealers are turning their own homes into meth labs trying to create higher quantities and make more money. The harmful and highly addictive effects of meth are only a piece of the puzzle, but the harmful chemicals used to create this drug are contaminating homes and releasing toxic fumes into the air.
Has the residence been tagged by the local authorities as “meth lab”? The local authorities could have quarantined the residents as a verified meth lab, meaning someone may have been arrested for meth manufacturing or there was convincing evidence in the home of meth manufacturing or usage of the drug. If this is the case, Bio Tec will work along with the local authorities and develop a specific work plan that follows the guidelines set up by the State’s Health Dept. This work plan outlines the step-by-step procedures for the residence to be cleaned, tested and brought back to a safe livable condition.
