What is a Fentanyl
You may have heard about Fentanyl in the news and wondered what it was and where it came from. An incredibly powerful opiod, Fentanyl has a number of medical applications and is routinely used under the supervision of medical care providers. Unfortunately, over the last several years, it has also become popular among drug abusers, manufacturers, and dealers. Due to its strength, very little Fentanyl is necessary to illicit a "high", leading some manufacturers and dealers to mix Fentanyl in with other drugs to increase the potency and felt effect by the user. This can be extremely dangerous, as Fentanyl is so potent that it requires very little to lead to an overdose. In fact, exposure by occupants to a few granules of Fentanyl can lead to death.
How dangerous is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is, unfortunately, becoming more and more common throughout the country. Which means that finding some powder on the floor or in a dresser when you're moving in can be extremely scary. It's not unheard of for new occupants or tenants to be exposed to Fentanyl while they're cleaning and unpacking!
Due to the potential risk that Fentanyl and other drugs represent, it's strongly recommended that unknown powders and substances be treated with caution until you know what they are. This may require testing and / or remediation to ensure that your property is safe.
