8 Hour Meth Lab Inspection Certification CourseFormer Methamphetamine (Meth) Lab Assessments What Every Property Owner & Renter Should Know Currently, most states have no regulations regarding the cleanup of former meth labs, nor is the disclosure of a former meth lab required for rentals or home sales. Buying or renting an apartment or home that was once used to make or smoke meth can be a serious health risk, due to meth residue left behind. During the illegal production of meth, properties will often become contaminated with hazardous chemicals. It is essential that any property that was formally used as a meth laboratory or even by a chronic smoker of meth should be tested (assessed) and if warranted, remediated by qualified environmental professionals. Some homeowners are often reluctant to pay thousands of dollars to make a property safe after meth use, so many houses simply don’t get cleaned, exposing harmful chemicals to the occupants. Occupants may not know until they have become sick after they have lived in a purchased or rented, meth impacted residence. Scope of Work During Meth Assessments The purpose of the meth assessment is to confirm the information gathered during the record review, document actual conditions of the site, conduct sampling or readings for VOC’S (volatile organic compounds), meth residue and pH and provide information for developing a cleanup plan, if warranted. Included in the report are general observations, test results, conclusions, and recommendations if warranted. Sampling methods and information collected onsite will include the collection of meth wipe samples, PID (photoionization detector) readings to detect VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) and pH sampling from surfaces inside the residence. The report, sampling and recommendations are based on the EPA Voluntary Guidelines for Methamphetamine Laboratory Cleanup. Why should inspectors care? for their own safety.
