Making a former meth lab safe for reoccupation requires two basic efforts: 1) the removal of gross contamination (i.e., containers of chemicals, equipment and apparatus that could be used to make illegal drugs); and 2) the remediation of interior structures and surrounding soil, surface waters and groundwater. The EPA provides voluntary guidelines related to remediation. As the Synthetics Strategy explains, “remediation involves utilizing recognized procedures and technology based standards to restore former meth labs to a state in which the property can be inhabited again—or, instead, identifying properties that are not yet ready for reoccupation and must undergo further treatment.”
Epoch Environmental Decon tests the property for drug residue, then follows EPA guidelines for Remediation. Upon completion, we provide property owner a Certificate of Remediation.
