|HOW TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR
FAMILY FROM THE TOXIC EFFECTS OF
FORMER METH LAB SITES
|Should you really worry about the harmful effects of meth residue in
your home or apartment?
One narcotics officer we talked to here in Missouri, who’s been involved in
hundreds of meth lab busts, definitely thinks so. He was telling us how he and
his wife recently had their second child. With their growing family, the time had
come to move into a bigger home. Instead of buying an existing home they
decided to build a brand-new one - at a considerably greater expense.
For them, the additional costs were well worth it for two very important
reasons. Their two children.
This officer and his wife did not want to take the risk of moving into a home
that could have once housed a meth lab. The extra strain on their family
budget was well worth the peace of mind of knowing they were not going to
expose their young family to the toxic residue left behind from the production
The Problems With Meth Lab Contamination
The process of cooking meth emits a snowstorm of toxic particles into the air.
These particles become embedded in walls, carpets, air vents, ceiling fans,
and more. People who move into homes or apartments that may have once
housed a meth lab can suffer serious health consequences from exposure to
this toxic stew.
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to tell whether your home or apartment has
been contaminated by meth lab activity. There are a few things you can do to
determine if a home or apartment is a former meth lab site:
A New Option for Detecting Meth Lab Activity: Find Out If Your
Home or Apartment Contains Toxic Meth Residue in Five Minutes
Now there's an easy and affordable solution that provides reliable
results on the spot! DrugWipe can detect the presence of illegal drugs
(including meth) on surfaces. This revolutionary technology, used by law
enforcement for over a decade, is now being deployed for front-line testing in
the war against toxic meth contamination. If you are acquiring residential
property for your family or for investment purposes, an IDS Methamphetamine
Contamination Assessment can provide you with piece of mind. Make sure
that the invisible dangers of meth residue are not an issue before you
purchase or lease property.
Why use DrugWipe to identify Meth contamination?
Why risk it? Find out if meth contamination could be threatening the health
and safety of you and your family!
Please note: DrugWipe is a highly sensitive technology, detecting drug residue down to the
nanogram level (one billionth of a gram). A positive result indicates that drug
contamination is present in the area screened. However, this may not necessarily mean
the contamination is present in levels that may pose a health risk to you or your family. IDS
recommends that you follow up a positive result by contacting a local environmental firm for
further testing and possible cleanup.
