Issues with Buying a Meth Contaminated Property

buying a meth contaminated propertyThe chemical residual waste products created during cooking and smoking methamphetamine are extremely hazardous to both humans and pets, rendering a meth property unsafe and unlivable without adequate decontamination. A meth site decreases not only the value of the property itself, but can also devalue all of the properties which surround it. Indoor residues are fairly permanent and can last for decades because they are protected from sun and microorganism breakdown; not only are replaceable furnishings affected, but also permanent structural elements such as dry wall, flooring, air ducts and more.

If you are considering buying a property with possible Meth contamination, the property should be tested. If the testing proves positive for Methamphetamine, carefully consider the amount of decontamination needed in order to make the property livable. If the Meth contamination is not properly removed and all necessary precautions are not taken, the inhabitants of the property may suffer the effects of a meth contaminated property for decades. However, with a professional meth decontamination provided by AEI Decon, utilizing our non-corrosive, non-hazardous cleaning solution and decontamination process we can create a healthy living environment for you and your family. As long as the surface is nonporous it can be decontaminated.

If you are still interested in purchasing the home that has tested positive for Meth, AEI Decon has partnered with Surety Title to include the cost of the decontamination into the closing costs of the house. If the seller and buyer can come to an agreement, the sale can still go through.  Visit Surety Title for more information.
