The residue created during the manufacturing of meth can pose serious health risks to you and other residents. 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.
Minimal exposure to the chemicals of a meth lab can result in nausea, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, and lethargy. These symptoms 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 an extended 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 long-term exposure to meth lab chemicals or meth residue.
Acute exposure to the chemicals of a meth lab or the residue left from smoking is also 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.
Chronic exposure to meth residue leads to serious health effects and can be extremely dangerous. This level of exposure is typically only seen if a premises was used as a functioning meth lab. Effects can include, neurological problems, organ failure, and increased risk of developing cancer. Chronic exposure can also lead to depression, convulsions, stomach pain, and muscle pain.
