Methamphetamine abuse is a serious, and growing, problem in the United States and across the world. According to a 2012 survey from the US National Institute on Drug Abuse, a staggering 12 million people have tried methamphetamine at least once!
Effects of meth abuse include cancer, liver and kidney damage, birth defects, aggression, memory loss, cardiovascular damage, psychotic behavior, malnutrition and extreme dental issues. The RAND corporation estimates that meth abuse cost the nation approximately $23.4 billion in 2005 alone, and that number is rising.
Meth is also known as crank, ice, crystal, chalk and is a white, odorless crystalline powder. Meth users often have a transient lifestyle, meaning they move frequently. This creates issues since once meth is used in a location, or even worse, cooked in a location, it can linger for years after the initial use. This presents serious concerns for individuals and families that rent or purchase these homes after meth contamination. Because of the high use of methamphetamines it is highly recommended that all prospective home buyers/renters get their house tested for meth contamination. The test is relatively inexpensive and quickly done.
The effects of those exposed to a house that is contaminated by methamphetamine are dangerous and documented. Residents living in a meth-contaminated house increase their risk of developing cancer and damaging the central nervous system, liver and kidneys.
Beyond the health dangers, it’s important to properly decontaminate a property since those living in a meth-contaminated house can test positive for meth use when a urinalysis or hair test is performed.
