Meth/Fentanyl Cleanup – Missouri Guidelines

For Meth/Fentanyl cleanup, reviewing your state of Kansas, Missouri or national guidelines is a good place to start. These resources will help you understand the severity of the contamination, level of remediation needed and the health risks involved. 

Serving as a useful source for homeowners and cleanup contractors, the EPA’s Voluntary Guidelines were geared towards state and local government officials charged with remediating or addressing former meth and fentanyl labs. The Voluntary Guide has recent research on the Meth/Fentanyl cleanup and shares regulations on best practices for cleanup guidelines. 

What To Do If You Suspect Meth/Fentanyl?

1.     Call your local law enforcement office to learn if a seizure of chemicals took place on the property.
2.     Reach out to a hazardous chemicals or environmental cleanup contractor like SMART Environmental Services, to learn about what materials may have been removed or for testing and possible remediation

What is the Risk in Inhabiting a Space of a Former Meth/Fentanyl Lab?

While the majority of lab-related equipment may have been removed (i.e. beakers, chemicals, heat sources, etc.), the possibility remains for contamination to remain on surfaces like sinks, drains or ventilation systems or absorbent materials like carpets or furniture. Lab contaminants may pose health risks if exposure happens

Can I Do Meth/Fenanyl Cleanup Myself?

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) believes the safest way to cleanup a former lab is to “hire environmental companies trained in hazardous substance removal and cleanup.”

Because building materials and common household furnishings can absorb contaminants, properly fitting personal protective equipment (PPE) that covers skin, hands and eyes need to be worn during cleaning. 

The DHSS guide also recommends cleaning the ventilation system, repainting walls and airing out fumes.
