Meth contamination is the residue and by-products left on surfaces after meth has been used (smoked), manufactured, distributed or stored within the property.

  • These contaminants can easily be absorbed into building materials, fixtures, fittings and items within the property. The residue clings to porous surfaces and takes professional action plan to decontaminate.
  • Persons coming into contact with meth contaminants can ingest or absorb the meth through their skin, or by touching a contaminated surface and then transfer this to their mouth, nose, or eyes.
  • The presence of meth at low levels does not necessarily pose an identified health risk. A professional laboratory analysis will provide information about the levels found and which will help to plan the risk assessment.
