Chemicals higher than 500 ng/L pose a health hazard to you and your family. These high compounds can cause blurry vision, nausea, dizziness, coughing, rashes, respiratory irritation, headaches mental confusion, lethargy and depression. High levels can also exacerbate existing conditions such as asthma. Very high levels can cause loss of consciousness, kidney and liver damage and some can cause cancer.
These chemicals can be found in building materials used in the home, cooking sources, gasoline and fuel, some air freshener, carpeting, laser printers, paints, cleaning products and many other sources. These chemicals can build up in homes during the winter and summer months when the homes are closed due to air conditioning and heating.
Drug lab testing for Jacksonville Beach home, apartment building or business owners has become a greater concern over the past decade. We sample areas that are hidden or that may not have been easily cleanable for meth residues. We wipe an area and send that wipe off to a third party lab for analysis. Once we receive the results from the meth testing, we can let you know definitively if meth contamination is present.
A home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, and should appreciate in value over time. The cost of clean up on a home contaminated with methamphetamine can range from $4,000 to well over $60,000 depending on the scope of remediation. Call us for a meth lab inspection before you purchase or move into any home to protect your family and your investment.
We utilize VOC gas inspection and testing when we have a client complaining of odors or who are experiencing headaches or feel nauseous. We conduct a general scan for volatile organic compounds by utilizing the TO-15 canister. We install this canister in the suspected areas and allow it to collect an air sample for a minimum of 4 hours. Once collected, we send the sample off to a third party lab for analysis. As soon as the results are received, we are able to issue recommendations for mitigation.
Methamphetamine (“crystal meth” or “meth”) is a highly addictive and illegal stimulant
A meth lab is an illegal drug-manufacturing site, often a house or apartment, containing equipment and potentially toxic chemicals required to produce meth. If meth has been cooked or smoked inside a structure, it will saturate walls, floors, ceilings and systems making it unsafe for occupants.
Whether you are moving into a new home that may need a drug lab testing, or you need a volatile organic compound testing in your current home, Luce is available to help you with all inspections and testing, no matter the circumstance. Contact us so we can get you your results as soon as possible.
