Apple Environmental Meth Remover has successfully decontaminated Fentanyl and the pesticide Dichlorvos & B-Cyfluthrin. For more information about these contaminates and the process for decontamination visit the following pages:
Fentanyl is a growing concern across our the country. Thousands of deaths are attributed to this drug each year. When used by a physician this drug can be an effective pain reliever, but in the hands of drug dealers it is deadly. Unlike pharmaceutical companies, street drug manufactures use equipment that is not calibrated to provide consistent doses or contain the manufacturing process resulting in the spread of contamination throughout the property.
Pill labs are notorious for covering wall, floors, and furniture in fine power which can be tracked around the house or carried throughout the HVAC system. These properties pose a unique threat, just walking into the property unprotected could result in inhalation or absorption exposures. Decontamination of a Pill lab is similar to decontaminating a Meth lab. Porous materials must be removed, all surfaces HEPA vacuumed and washed down.
Please see Fentanyl decontamination guidelines:
Many pesticides such as Dichlorvos can be an effective way to control pests if directions and application procedures are followed correctly. However, excessive use of pesticides inside a dwelling can result in adverse affects in humans.
