It might surprise you to know some South Bend property owners are finding out that their residential or commercial properties have occupied a working methamphetamine laboratory. The detrimental effects that meth contamination can have on your South Bend property and its occupants are not light ones. You may find home-testing kits, but these tend to be unreliable. If you suspect that your South Bend property requires meth decontamination services, we recommend contacting First Response Disaster Restoration Specialists so that we can provide you quality professional cleaning.
Effects of Meth Contamination on Your South Bend Property
Methamphetamine laboratories can generate hazardous waste in the form of vapors and other chemical spillages that affect everything inside your South Bend residential or commercial property. The toxic fumes can contaminate everything in your building from your carpets, walls, furniture, drapes, heating, and cooling, or HVAC, systems and the air itself. Spillage may have also impacted the property’s floors, appliances, and other surfaces. Your property’s piping can also be affected, since hazardous chemicals are often dumped down the drains inside kitchens or bathrooms.
Effects of Meth on Your South Bend Property Occupants
Methamphetamine-contaminated South Bend residential or commercial property can be hazardous to the health of its occupants. Since the fumes can seep into almost all surfaces and affect the quality of the air itself, it is nearly impossible to avoid contact with it. A former meth lab can cause respiratory and cardiovascular damage. Contact with a contaminated area can also result in a burning sensation on the skin and mucous membrane, severe eye damage, respiratory irritation, decreased mental function, anemia, kidney damage, birth defects, and even cancer.
What We Can Do for Your South Bend Property
Our meth lab cleanup technicians can help your South Bend property recover and become a safe living or working environment with our meth decontamination expertise. The level of restoration possible on a property depends on the types of surfaces in question. Non-porous surfaced materials can typically be cleaned and reclaimed. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about porous surfaces like rugs, mattresses, and other furniture. Those need to be replaced entirely. South Bend properties must be abandoned until they have received our complete meth lab cleanup services.
