Methamphetamine (Meth) Assessments and Testing

with Remediation Protocols (Instructions) and Post-Remediation Clearance Assessments

What Every Property Owner and Renter Should Know

Currently Florida has no regulations regarding the cleanup of former meth labs, nor is the disclosure of a former meth lab required for home sales or rentals.

Buying or renting a home or apartment 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 reluctant to pay thousands of dollars to make a property safe after meth use, so many houses simply are not cleaned, exposing harmful chemicals to the occupants. Occupants may not know until they actually become sick that they are living in a 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 reading for VOCs (volatile organic compounds), meth residue and pH and provide information for developing a cleanup plan (remediation), if warranted.

Included in the report are general observations, test results, conclusions, and if warranted, instructions for remediation.

Sampling methods and information collected onsite will include the collection of meth wipe samples, PID (photo ionization detector) readings to detect VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and pH sampling from surfaces inside the residence. The report, sampling and instructions for remediation are based on the EPA Voluntary Guidelines for Methamphetamine Laboratory Cleanup.

CFL will not be involved in the remediation (cleanup) of any meth residue problems, as that would be a conflict of interest. However, CFL strongly recommends having a Post Remediation Verification Assessment performed prior to any build-back or painting of any surfaces inside the residence to ensure the remediation was successful.
