Meth Lab Remediation
24Trauma is certified to remediate drug and “meth” labs after which the chemicals have been removed from the property by an accredited agency such as the DEA or HAZMAT. These areas should be cleaned by a certified drug lab remediation company upon removal of these chemicals.
24Trauma will make a preliminary property and sampling assessment. Samples will be taken and sent to an analytical lab for testing of methamphetamine contamination. Once the results have been received, a work plan will be established and sent to the local health department for review and approval. When the plan and project is completed, 24Trauma will start the decontamination process. An “Occupancy Certificate” will then be issued to the property owner.
