We, the Meth Mob gang, have been involved in site restoration, facilities and both residential and commercial cleaning for over ten years. Meth Mob Decontamination Specialists was a natural evolution. The key to quality decontamination is attention to detail and knowledge of what harmful substances exist. We are proficient in both areas. That is why we offer a 100% guarantee pass. Here are a few of the Meth Decontamination FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
There are many harmful substances associated with the production of and/or smoking meth. The two most dangerous are residues from Iodine contamination and the residual vapors and phosphine left behind by Red Phosphorous. Sometimes these affects are undetectable with our regular senses. In order to eradicate the threat we use a certified lab to test levels.
Removal and disposal of contents of the home – Carpet and pad must be removed and disposed of. Carpet and pad are the largest filter in the home. Mattresses, couches, blinds, drapery, clothing, etc. as well as any porous material removed and disposed of.
Decontaminating walls, ceiling, floors, furnace and furnace ducts. The furnace and ducts are carrying the meth contamination and residue to every room they service.
We use a non-corrosive, non-hazardous cleaning solution especially developed for meth decontamination. This product minimizes corrosive pitting metal such as light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, door handles and even the nails in your drywall and does not leave behind a sticky slime or noxious fumes.
Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Also known as meth, chalk, ice, and crystal, it takes the form of a white, yellow or clear odorless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder that easily dissolves in water or alcohol. Developed around 1830, it is derived from its parent drug, amphetamine. It was used originally in nasal decongestants and bronchial dilators.
The cost of decontamination is determined by three things:
Removal and disposal of contents of the home – Any porous material removed and disposed of.
Square footage of the home – Decontaminating walls, ceiling, floors, furnace and furnace ducts.
Testing level – Will determine how many times the home and furnace needs the decontamination cleaning process to place the home under the legal limit.
While this is a rare situation, occasionally the contamination is so invasive that the surface cannot be cleaned. At Meth Mob, we understand how costly cleanup can be. Our Guarantee is that we will perform as minimally invasive treatments as possible. This means that you can rest assured that even partial demolition will always be a last resort solution.
Generally no! Of course the answer to that depends on where the chemical residue is found but generally only materials that have come into direct contact with the contamination will be discarded, and only if they cannot be cleaned satisfactorily.
As we have mentioned, there are many harmful agents used in the production process. Here are some of them:
Some of the warning signs include:
None of these signs, by themselves, indicate a problem however if you notice two or more of the above mentioned warning signs you should be wary.
Not at all. We are 100% confident in our ability to eradicate contaminations on your property. We welcome scrutiny; it only serves to enhance our credibility.
No, painting DOES NOT encapsulate the meth, nor is it effective in getting rid of it. Meth needs to be decontaminated, not covered up. If the production process creates a situation where interior walls, floors or ceilings have become unsightly, the owner can re-paint after decontamination is completed.
