The production and use of illegal substances like methamphetamines and other drugs involves a significant amount of hazardous materials including flammables, chemicals, and biohazards. After police process evidence at sites where drug activity occurred, cleanup is required to return the area to safe conditions, remove materials that might be harmful to the environment, and eliminate the risk of pathogen spread. In the majority of cases, crime scene cleanup and biohazard mitigation is left to the owners of the property. However, the cleanup of meth labs and other dangerous sites shouldn’t be attempted without the proper protective clothing, chemical solutions, training, and disposal capabilities. If you need to process a site previously used for methamphetamine or other drug manufacturing and/or use, your best course of action is to seek the help of a professional disaster and trauma restoration company. ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration deals with trauma cleanup in Coatesville, PA and the surrounding areas for meth labs, crime scenes, and other sites where hazardous materials are present. Our team of skilled technicians is trained to inspect, contain, remove, and dispose of biohazards, chemicals, and other substances at meth labs with proper procedures and protective equipment.
Proper Trauma Cleanup Requires a Comprehensive, Multi-Step Process
When a site was used for meth, fentanyl, or other drug production and use, the resulting substances can affect the entire building. This includes furniture, flooring, walls, appliances, plumbing, HVAC systems, ducting, fabrics, and more. For comprehensive trauma cleanup of a meth or other drug lab, our professionals follow a multi-step process that includes visual assessment of interiors and exteriors, testing to determine the contamination levels, removal of debris and all porous materials, decontamination of surfaces, retesting to ensure full removal of hazardous materials, and documentation of a final report meeting legal standards.
Simply Put, Drug Lab Sites Are Extremely Dangerous
Hazardous materials at drug lab sites pose a risk to human and animal exposure as well as a detriment to the earth. Some of these materials include:
- Biohazards like used needles, other drug paraphernalia, blood, tissue, etc.
- Flammables such as camping fuels, ether, and other drug cooking chemicals
- Chemicals and compounds used in making meth, fentanyl, and other drugs or cleaning solutions for hiding the cooking that are hazardous to the environment
- The drugs themselves that pose a risk to any cleanup crew, crime processors, or owners of the property
Because of these materials, meth lab trauma cleanup in Coatesville, PA should always be performed by professionals with the necessary tools and protections.
