Vehicle Methamphetamine Decontamination

Earlier this year, Juvenaire launched its Auto Decontamination Division and has since been receiving a large amount of cars contaminated with methamphetamine.

We hear many stories about clandestine laboratories and the manufacture of homemade meth which contaminate properties and become unhealthy to live in. However, the simple fact of smoking meth puts the environment at high risks of contamination. People who smoke meth do so at home but also in their cars.

When smoking meth, the small particles present in the smoke land on all surfaces in the vehicle. Residue and fumes then penetrate the ventilation system as well as seats, dashboards, carpets, upholsteries etc.

Juvenaire provides high quality meth cleaning for cars with our established and effective decontamination procedure.

To decontaminate a meth contaminated vehicle, our specialists follow these steps:

1. Visual Inspection for Sharps

As soon as Juvenaire receives a suspected methamphetamine contaminated car, our technicians first need to inspect it for sharps.

2. Packing Personal Items

If there are any personal goods remaining in the car, our team will take them away and store them in bags.

3. Meth Testing

The damages aren’t physically visible. This is why, BEFORE proceeding with an expensive cleaning process it is very important to undertake testings to ensure whether the vehicle is contaminated or not.If the results come back positive, it is highly recommended that the car is professionally cleaned.

Note: Meth car decontamination can be very expensive. Testing your vehicle could save you a lot of money.

4. Positive Meth Testing

If the vehicle tested is contaminated by meth, Juvenaire will provide a quotation along with a report to inform the insurance company of the costs.

5. Cleaning Process

A meth contaminated car requires a thorough cleaning. To clean the toxic chemicals from methamphetamine, the seats need to be removed and treated. The interior of the auto is then disinfected and sanitised.

The vehicle may need to be treated several times depending on the level of contamination.

6. Second Testing

It is very important to proceed with another testing after the cleaning of a Methamphetamine contaminated automobile. This second testing will indicate us if the car has been completely decontaminated and is 100% to be handed back to the owner.
