Methamphetamine is a synthetic (man-made) drug.
To check whether your home could be at risk, visit the National Clandestine Laboratory Registry Web site.
The meth that is used illegally is made from dangerous chemicals that can be purchased at any local store. An individual who believes he or she has discovered an active illegal drug lab or the site of an abandoned lab should immediately notify local law enforcement (Dial 911) and should not enter the area of the suspected lab. The contaminant residue can be absorbed through the skin by humans and animals, causing health problems including respiratory (breathing) problems, skin and eye irritation, headaches, nausea and dizziness.
Meth residue can permeate porous materials such as floors, ceilings, carpeting and draperies. In most cases, meth residue is odorless and invisible to the human eye.
Professional chemical lab testing must be done prior to decontamination to determine the level of its presence, then again afterwards, to confirm complete elimination of dangerous materials. Anubis SceneClean, Inc. is certified in testing for Meth residue. If you are considering purchasing a home, we highly recommend having it tested.
