CONCERNED ABOUT POSSIBLE METH RESIDUE
IN YOUR HOME, CAR, OR RV
COULD YOUR HOME, BUSINESS, VEHICLE, OR RV HAVE A POSSIBLE METH RESIDUE CONTAMINATION PROBLEM?
Meth (Methamphetamine) Testing -
Harmful Meth residue comes from the production, use, cutting, selling or distribution of methamphetamines. The level of contamination can vary greatly depending on the amount of activity at a property. A single event can result in detectable levels of contamination. Meth use and production result in airborne hazardous residue which can contaminate surfaces in a property.
Meth labs are on the decline here in Utah, but meth use remains a LARGE and GROWING problem here in Utah. Much of the meth is being brought in from Mexico now. The Utah Health Department states that 28% of all people entering substance abuse programs are addicted to meth. Meth is a HIGHY addictive drug.

METH CONTAMINATION CLEANUP CAN INVOLVE A WIDE RANGE OF PROCEDURES
Here at Behind The Scenes Home Inspections we does not get involved in the meth cleanup process, but we have many years of knowledge that have allowed us to learn about the process.
We will gladly refer you to a couple of contractors we trust that will take care of your cleanup needs if needed.
HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES OF THE METH CONTAMINATION CLEANUP PROCESS:
Simple duct and furnace cleaning for low level contamination cases.
Often times only certain areas of the home are contaminated, so a more limited cleanup procedure can be performed in specific rooms.
In heavier contamination situations the chemicals soak through the paint and into fabric and carpet. If the contamination level exceeds 1.0ug throughout the entire home, then a more extensive professional cleanup is needed including cleaning all the walls, cleaning ducts, replacing carpet and fabric items in the home. This can be very costly and can range from $5,000-$35,000.
