Meth Residue Testing in Oregon and Southern Washington
Meth is made from common household items that are readily available at supermarkets and hardware stores. When these ingredients are mixed together or “cooked” to produce the drug, they generate a large amount of chemical waste. This waste is typically dumped down the drain, but may be stored, buried, or dumped elsewhere on the property.
Surfaces in the residence may become contaminated with this waste and be corrosive. If not properly decontaminated, residual wastes can remain on surfaces for years. This is why meth labs are considered hazardous and should only be handled by hazardous waste professionals.
ETTNW is approved through the Oregon Health Authority Clandestine Drug Lab program to conduct Meth Testing for residential and commercial buildings.
We conduct two types of testing:
- Composite Sampling: Data driven results which require a 5-day turnaround, producing results that show the micrograms per square foot.
- Instantaneous Test: Provides positive of negative testing on site.
The type of testing is dependent on the clean-up procedure needed. Contact ETTNW today to discuss the type of test that best suits your needs.
