There are significant health risks associated with clandestine drug labs. In Australia, these drug labs produce amphetamine, methamphetamine and ecstasy in significant amounts. Most of these (over 68%) are located in residential dwellings and has doubled in Australia over the past decade. The health risks range from sleeping disorders to lung damage and significant brain damage.
One does not need to use these drugs to be affected and just exposure to their particles can be extremely hazardous to health. What is even more concerning is the fact that the drug residue, even after a quick clean up is often invisible and can even lead to permanent health issues and may even be fatal.
For instance, families moving into a home that has been previously used as a clandestine drug lab have shown signs of drug exposure and high levels of contamination. Apart from it being a major health risk, some of these families have had to abandon all their possessions due to excessive exposure to harmful substances which has thus resulted in immense financial losses.
Thorough clean up by professional and certified cleaners would be able to remove this harmful substance with the use specialised equipment. This ensures that the health risks are mitigated and would allow families to live without facing significant health risks caused by drug residue.
Surface drug testing technologies have been very beneficial in detecting invisible residue post drug manufacture. The DrugWipe 1A which is a surface testing device can be used on surfaces such as walls, furniture and appliances. It is a cost effective investment for certified commercial property cleaners and building inspectors to detect drug residue.
