Meth Lab Dangers Exposed in a New Public Outreach Video
The IAQ Video Network produces another public outreach video to educate families about environmental and indoor air quality (IAQ) issues.
Most of the methamphetamine abused in this country comes from foreign or domestic super-labs, although it can also be made in small, illegal laboratories, where its production endangers the people in the labs, neighbors, and the environment.
These small laboratories have been found in everything from hotel rooms and recreational vehicles to apartments and suburban homes. During the illegal production of meth, properties will often become contaminated with hazardous chemicals. These laboratories also pose a strong risk of fire or explosion.
“Many of these toxic chemicals used to produce meth can easily contaminate a property,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network. “These chemicals can pose a significant health risk to future occupants, especially children of these properties. It is essential that any property that was formally used as a meth laboratory be tested and remediated by qualified environmental professionals. This latest video is meant to give the public an idea of the health risks associated with former meth lab properties and what can be done to help protect their families.”
