Rising Rate of Meth Labs in US

The discovery of Methamphetamine labs throughout the United States is on the rise. In Albuquerque, New Mexico a total of Fourteen (14) labs were raided in a two (2) week period in September 2003. Proper initial testing, remediation, and final inspections are necessary in order for the property owner to reduce their liability when renting or selling their property that was once a Methamphetamine lab. Most of the hazardous chemicals located in a structure where a Methamphetamine lab was operated are retained in the interior building materials and can be volatilized into the indoor air unless proper decontamination procedures are followed.
