Methamphetamine Remediation

We utilise a unique, sustainable methamphetamine management program.

Methamphetamine Remediation

Methamphetamine, or crystal methamphetamine hydrochloride (meth), is a strong, addictive, synthetic drug commonly produced in concealed illicit laboratories that often move around to avoid detection. The meth production process involves explosive substances that release highly toxic airborne chemical compounds that can remain indefinitely in the building interior surfaces and absorbent materials including walls, floors, ceilings, furniture, sinks, drains, appliances and ventilation systems. Please contact us to discuss how our methamphetamine remediation solution can help you.

Invisible threats

Long after a meth laboratory has been removed, the hazardous residues may remain invisible, yet pose serious health, environmental, economic and legal threats to both residents and owners. Exposure to even small residual amounts may result in serious adverse acute and chronic health effects, especially for children.

Who is responsible?

Whether you want to buy, sell or sublet a property, you must first ensure that it is entirely safe and hazard-free. Renting out contaminated premises and facilities is officially considered a violation of a landlord’s obligation to provide premises in a reasonable state of cleanliness. The national legislation obliges all property owners, their agents or managers to assess, correct and manage any chemical hazards arising from their property, including those caused by any previous use of the premises. The owners are requested to administer and finance abatement work, engage competent and appropriately trained contractors for remediation process and verification of contaminant levels.

Protect your assets!

If the contamination is not identified and addressed as soon as possible, the property owner may face major financial losses including compensation to tenants, loss of rental income and insurance provision, lower property market value, as well as resulting legal and potential liability issues. To verify that the property and premises have not been compromised, seek professional consultation from a certified hazardous waste expert. Each property must be evaluated individually on a case-by-case basis, as the ingredients and methods for meth production often vary, so the residues and potential hazards can be different.

Do not wait until it is too late!

Identifying and neutralizing contamination as early as possible significantly reduces health and environmental damage, saves reputation, money and potentially people’s lives. As meth contamination is considered a public hazard, the decontamination process can be highly complex and involve multiple players.
