Shocking to say the least, when you discover the dream house you want to buy or possibly already purchased had a meth lab in it and or the drug was smoked. You can't see the residue. It's basically invisible. Meth labs can be anywhere. People have been caught cooking meth in urban settings, and upper-income homes. There is a wide variety of places where meth labs have been established. It is most certainly a growing problem in the United States and the need for testing and cleaning homes affected by meth use or production is at an all time high. Don't allow yourself or your family to fall victim of the harmful effects caused by living in a home with methamphetomine residue.
Babies are especially vulnerable. They live in a world where they crawl on all fours and everything is sampled by tasting. It takes only small amounts of meth to affect a baby. A baby crawling on the floor could actually get high.
The vapor clings to surfaces and reforms into crystals. People who come in contact with these surfaces can ingest the meth through their skin or by mouth, nose or eyes.
Your pets can be dramatically effected too! They can suffer from hallucinations, obsessive grooming and blindness along with other alarming symptoms.
