The number of properties requiring professional meth lab cleaning is increasing around Australia.
Meth lab cleaning refers to the cleaning and restoration of properties that were formerly used to manufacture methamphetamine. The hazardous materials left behind in a former meth lab can be toxic and extremely dangerous to the health and well-being of people nearby. To ensure that the premises is safe for future habitation, it is important to enlist the services of a professional meth lab cleaning team.

The meth lab remediation process
Meth lab remediation refers to the restoration and recovery of buildings, rooms and fixtures formerly used in the production of methamphetamine.
Meth lab remediation can be a complex process, and it requires the use of a specialised team. As meth labs carry a certain amount of stigma from the community, discretion and efficiency are both needed to ensure the remediation process can be carried out as quickly and effectively as possible.
Which areas in the building are tested?
At FCT Cleaning, our specialist meth lab cleaning team will complete a thorough cleaning and decontamination of the former meth lab both prior to and as part of the remediation process. After cleaning down the walls and swab testing the area, the swabs will be sent to a specialist laboratory for testing. The sites of the dwelling that are commonly cleaned and tested include:
Each site is thoroughly analysed for several hazardous substances, including methamphetamine, MDMA and heavy metals. After the results return from the lab, they can be used as a baseline to compare before and after the cleaning and remediation process.
Why is pre-remediation testing so important?
Pre-remediation testing is important for several reasons. It can ensure the safety of workers and level of protective equipment necessary during the cleaning process. It also establishes whether or not contamination levels exceed state environmental standards, and if meth lab remediation is necessary in the first place. Sampling can also outline the extent of the contamination in the premises, and present a scope of work for the meth lab remediation team. Finally, sampling and swabbing can also highlight other hazardous materials present, including heavy metals.
