Our thorough process is what truly sets us apart:

  • We work with ALL INSURANCE COMPANIES to help the entire process seamless for you.
  • Before we begin cleanup, Team Lead Supervisor will enter your home, take “before” pictures and conduct extensive testing with our Ion Scanner to identify all the areas of the home that might have been affected by drug manufacture or have harmful residues present.

Equipment, and damaged items such as flooring, walls, furniture, and décor that cannot be decontaminated are neutralized, bagged and removed.
  • Unlike our competitors, we have obtained an Ion Scanner that detects “trace” amounts of illicit drugs (in nanograms=1billionth of a gram) as well as the convenience of having a third-party industrial hygienist testing company to re-test the property for clearance to ensure that we have completely eliminated all harmful substances from the home.
  • We will issue you a complete property analysis report and certificate upon completion of remediation.

Understanding Fentanyl and Recognizing Drug Labs

Identifying a Drug Lab

Detecting a drug lab involves recognizing several key indicators that often go unnoticed. These signs may include:

  • Unusual amounts of white or colored powder on various surfaces such as walls, floors, and countertops.
  • Residents wearing filtration masks, safety glasses, or other protective gear, sometimes under the pretext of “painting.”
  • Tenants showing reluctance to allow landlords or inspectors into the property.
  • Persistent chemical odors, often resembling a strong vinegar smell.
  • Rent payments made exclusively in cash.
  • Exhaust fans operating at unusual times to possibly vent hazardous fumes.
  • Constantly drawn curtains and the installation of surveillance cameras, suggesting privacy concerns or secretive activities.

Fentanyl Overview

Fentanyl is an extremely potent synthetic opioid, akin to morphine but about 80 to 100 times stronger. It is classified as a Schedule II prescription drug, which indicates a high potential for abuse alongside recognized medical uses, such as pain relief in clinical settings.

In medical environments, fentanyl is utilized to manage severe pain following surgeries or for cancer patients, particularly when other opioids prove ineffective. It is commonly administered via a Duragesic Transdermal Patch, which provides consistent pain relief by releasing a controlled dose directly through the skin.

Safety and Remediation

Handling properties or equipment contaminated with fentanyl or its analogs, such as carfentanil or W18, requires specialized training and awareness of the associated risks. It’s critical for Health Services, Insurance companies, and property owners to engage qualified and competent contractors for the remediation process to manage liability effectively.

Proper cleanup involves thorough decontamination and verification by reputable firms to ensure safety. This is crucial to prevent cross-contamination that could impact families, businesses, and the community. For example, a vehicle improperly cleaned by an auto detailer could lead to secondary exposure to toxic substances, potentially resulting in severe health consequences.

All properties suspected of contamination do not necessarily require demolition but must be meticulously cleaned and officially cleared to prevent any risk of hazardous exposure.
