Once it has been established a home has been used as a P lab, an extensive decontamination process is required - which can cost from between $5000 to $35,000. But there is no national standard for what constitutes a satisfactory clean-up. |
There is no open database of what houses have been checked and tested positive. That means contamination from the manufacture of P is quietly swept under the carpet, to protect property owners and insurers from potential losses, and this suits the drug industry just fine.
P lab contaminated houses are a serious problem as the residual chemicals are highly toxic and exposure can cause illnesses related to immunodeficiency and serious diseases like cancer. Therefore you'd think the government was getting serious about the problem, unfortunately not...
The transient nature of P labs means the number of contaminated houses is growing. Even if a doctor recognises the causes of their illnesses, which is usually not the case, those who are affected have little chance at any recompense.
What we need is an open and easily accessible database of houses that have been tested for contamination and a dedicated task force to start testing more houses. Without these things, innocent people will continue to bear many of the costs of New Zealand's P epidemic, and that's simply unfair.
Those who are unfortunate enough to live in a house that has previously been used to manufacture the methamphetamine drug known as pure (P), have an uphill battle on their hands.
P lab clean up services are required because the sites are hazardous. Meth labs require evaluation, cleanup and decontamination by trained and certified professionals. There can be serious health problems in people or animals exposed to meth labs. Potentially deadly chemicals (either meth or by-products of cooking) can enter the body by inhalation, ingestion or absorption through the skin. Meth use and the production of meth can cause serious health problems not only in the users, but also in others who are unintentionally or unknowingly exposed.
Professional meth lab cleaning services are required for the remediation of any clandestine drug lab. Meth lab decontamination is an intricate process involving many steps including, site assessment, sampling / meth testing, comprehensive work plan, removal of contents, decontamination of structure, post-sampling, documentation, liaison with a Certified Industrial Hygienist, final reporting, and more.
