Residential Methamphetamine Lab Cleanup Checklist Mobile App
The Residential Methamphetamine Lab Cleanup Checklist is an app that is useful after a methamphetamine lab or meth lab has been found and shutdown.
How does it work?
Methamphetamine is a drug that is relatively easy to make using chemicals that can be procured in hardware stores and over-the-counter medications from pharmacies - this has led to the rise of methamphetamine labs in residential environments. Unfortunately, the production of methamphetamine involves chemical reactions that generate hazardous waste which poses health hazards and potential exposure to hazardous substances. This app has checklist items that help to effectuate a residential meth lab clean-up including ensuring that a house is ventilated, that a HAZMAT team responds, that PPE is used in cleanup efforts, that toys and clothing that have been exposed to meth residue are properly cleaned or discarded. The use of HEPA filters is indicated by this app, and replacing of HVAC filters, washing of floors, walls, ceilings and furniture is performed diligently, and that all surfaces are properly repainted.
