When a person enters a property contaminated with meth residue before it has been properly cleaned and decontaminated, the residue becomes a real and serious health risk. The dangers that remain after meth residue contamination occurs do not dissipate over time. Immediate exposure to a meth lab is serious.
Fiscally, owning a property contaminated by meth residue can result in substantial financial distress. Decontamination of a property may require removing carpet, wall and ceiling lining, electrical fitting, air-conditioning units and insulation. While insurance is available, the excess is generally sizeable and generally will have a set cover limit.
