Meth Lab Cleanup in Kansas
Lamunyon Restoration uses standards set forth by the EPA to clean and decontaminate your property in a safe, effective manner after meth lab contamination.
Meth labs are areas where methamphetamine is manufactured (cooked), stored and/or used. Meth labs can be found anywhere. They have been discovered in abandoned and occupied buildings, trailers, homes, apartments, hotels and other businesses in rural areas and small towns, large cities and suburban neighborhoods. Residual meth contamination from former meth labs or even meth use can remain on surfaces throughout the home long after those responsible are gone, resulting in toxic residues, fumes, and vapors.
Potentially deadly chemicals can enter the body by inhalation, ingestion or absorption through the skin. Meth use and the production of meth can cause serious health problems not only in the users but also to home buyers and property managers who are unintentionally or unknowingly exposed to an area where meth was manufactured or used. The toxicity can cause skin irritations, respiratory problems and adverse health effects to vital organs. Due to lack of disclosure laws during the real estate transaction process, thousands of properties are contaminated and re-sold.
The cleanup of these locations is very specific and certain regulations must be followed to do it properly. If there was a fire, certain fire and smoke damage cleanup procedures must be followed as well. Generally, contaminated insulation just be replaced and we regularly find mold growth as these locations have been poorly maintained.
