Danger of Meth Labs and Meth Contamination
A Methamphetamine Laboratory or also called clandestine drug lab is an illegal operation that is used to cook the illegal stimulant, meth. Meth labs can greatly vary in size from the size that can fit in a backpack or the back of a car, to a large commercial operation. Meth labs have been discovered at an increasing worrying rate across Australia, so does the need for specialised meth remediation technicians.
Meth labs can be found at any place; hence, the danger is when innocent people are occupying a house that has been used to produce or consume meth in the past. The chemicals used to produce meth are extremely volatile and hazardous. Not only the chemicals can trigger an explosion when not mixed or stored appropriately, but meth consumption or usage produces residue that deposits on surfaces inside a house, which never disappears when not cleaned properly.
Exposure to meth residue inside a house can lead to serious long-term health risks even years after the meth lab has been shut down. Health risks can include intoxication, nausea, dizziness, severe chemical burns, damage to internal organs and serious respiratory problems. In addition to inhalation or skin exposure risks, children are particularly at risk in a meth contaminated property. Just being in contact with the floor and other contaminated surfaces can lead to higher potential to ingesting chemicals.
