A pre-requisite of a current 40-hour HAZWOPER or 8-hour refresher is required to obtain a remediation specialist certification. Decontamination must be completed under negative air and containment. All non-porous or visibly stained materials must be removed and disposed of, all other items may be decontaminated using hot water and detergent solution and washing/rinsing three times. Post-remediation sampling shall be conducted under the supervision of a Certified Industrial Hygienist. To achieve clearance meth levels must be 0.1ug/100cm² or non-detectable.
