Methamphetamine manufacturing sites, also known as “meth labs,” can be found in numerous situations, such as when you purchase a new home or rent to tenant who starts a lab. Contamination from the chemicals used to make the meth can carry a high risk of causing illness (sometimes even neurological damage). These circumstances require a comprehensive cleanup service to avoid remediation costs.
