TSCU specializes in drug lab decontamination that neutralizes toxic and hazardous chemicals used in the manufacturing of illegal drug labs.
The manufacture of illegal drugs, including methamphetamine (meth), involves the use of volatile, corrosive and highly toxic chemicals that can leave harmful residues throughout a structure. Those structures can include makeshift labs in rented housing, basements, hotel rooms and vehicles.
Because these labs are very harmful to life and health, they should be handled carefully by a trained professional CDL (clandestine drug lab) contractor. Owners who decide to clean properties on their own should be aware that household building materials and furniture may absorb contaminants and release harmful fumes.
Why Should I Contact a Professional Before Drug Lab Decontamination?
When a drug lab is discovered by authorities, the bulk of lab-related materials may be removed. Although the area may seem safe, there are small amounts of chemicals that will have contaminated surfaces, drains, ventilation systems, materials, sinks and other spaces. These chemicals can be very hazardous to your health and should always be handled by a qualified professional.
Possible Health Effects from Meth Lab Chemical Exposure
The list of health problems related to exposure to meth lab chemicals is extensive. You may experience:
- Respiratory problems
- Skin and eye irritations
High levels of exposure to chemicals over a short period of time can cause death or severe damage to your body.
