What is a Meth Lab
A property that is currently, or was previously, being used to produce Methamphetamine is known as a Meth Lab. Unfortunately, Meth Labs have become much more common in our area, having been found all across Northeastern PA. In fact, Meth Labs have been found in towns, cities, and even in rural areas. They've been found in properties the meth producer owned, in outbuildings such as garages and sheds, and even in tenant occupied units!
Is living in a Meth Lab dangerous?
The process used to create or "cook" Methamphetamine is incredibly dangerous, both during the cooking process, as well as long after the gross chemicals and production equipment have been removed.
A working Meth Lab can present a very real explosion hazard, and should not be tampered with under any circumstances. If you feel that you have discovered a Meth Lab, contact Law Enforcement immediately, as they can determine if the property is in fact safe.
Many people don't realize however, that during the production process, these hazardous chemicals become airborne and will leave a residue on structural components and contents throughout the property. These residual chemicals will continue to present a hazard to occupants until the property has been properly and successfully decontaminated by a company trained to properly perform this work. Due to the specialized procedures necessary, general cleaning by a "cleaning company" is not sufficient.
