Meth labs leave behind hazardous chemicals.

The Denver Housing Authority on Jan. 31 authorized 10 Abbotts Fire and Flood technicians to supervise meth lab decontamination on properties the Authority manages.

These days, unfortunately, any housing authority manager or landlord knows what methamphetamine or meth is.

For property managers and owners, discovering a meth lab means serious risk for their property and other residents of the property.

When a meth lab is discovered in a structure, the building must be thoroughly inspected and tested for the presence of hazardous substances related to meth production.

Such sites are often classified by law or regulation as hazardous or contaminated because potentially hazardous and even fatal chemicals and fumes left over from meth production can enter humans and animals through inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption.

Abbotts Fire and Flood knows and complies with all state and local laws and regulations related to methamphetamine laboratory cleanup and mitigation.

Abbotts Fire and Flood knows and complies with all state and local laws and regulations related to methamphetamine laboratory cleanup and mitigation. Our knowledge of the strict rules designed to protect people and property from toxic meth lab contamination enables housing authorities and property owners to recover cleanup costs through grants from programs like the EPA’s Brownfields or “MethFields” initiative
