If you suspect that you are in a meth lab, the first thing to do is get out and call a professional meth lab clean up company to conduct an inspection. You may know that your property has faced a meth lab before, but you do not see any evidence and you have not noticed any effects. You may assume that you are safe, unfortunately, this is not the case.
The residue created during the manufacturing of meth can pose serious health risks to you. While the residue may not be visible, it can leach into walls, furniture curtains, sewers, and other porous materials throughout your property. Inhaling these vapours or coming into direct contact with contaminated objects can be very dangerous to your health.
Health risks can be classified into the severity of exposure, these are listed below.
Acute exposure to the chemicals of a meth lab can be dangerous. Exposure can result in a cough, difficulty breathing, dizziness, chest pain, irritation of eyes, nose, and mouth. All these symptoms could potentially result in death if the person involved is vulnerable.
Minimal exposure to the chemicals of a meth lab can result in nausea, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and lethargy. Symptoms of minimal exposure may disappear after a few hours of exposure to fresh air. Often, responding police officers and law enforcement personnel who have entered a meth lab before the clean up may suffer from minimal exposure.
Minimal exposure for a long period of time, by people living in a former meth lab can lead to serious health risks. Additionally, birth defects in children may be a result of exposure to meth lab chemicals.
Chronic exposure to the chemicals of a meth lab can lead to serious health effects and can be extremely dangerous.
