Frequently Asked Questions
Would my home be contaminated if a meth user smoked in it?
Yes, but likely, the levels of contamination will be lower than if your home has been used as a meth lab. The larger the scale of usage, the higher the contamination levels.
How long will my home stay contaminated from meth residue?
According to a study published on International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, contamination from cooking meth can last up to 5 years after a home is left uninhibited.
Can I clean up my meth-contaminated home myself?
If you suspect that your home’s previous tenants smoked meth, you may try to clean up the residue using regular cleaning agents found in your home such as bleach and sugar soap. However, if the property has been used as a clandestine lab, regular cleaning products may not be enough to bring the contamination down to levels that could be considered safe. As exposure to meth can present health hazards, it’s best to leave the job to meth clean-up specialists.
