Methamphetamine, also known as meth, speed or ice, is a powerful illegal drug that is typically manufactured in clandestine laboratories in houses, apartments, factories and hotel rooms. During drug manufacturing, toxic chemicals and gasses are produced as by-products, which contaminate the property. Contamination persists long after manufacturing stops because the chemicals are absorbed by furnishings, fittings, floors, walls, drains and ducting. This residual contamination presen.ts a serious safety risk to the health of occupants. Common symptoms of exposure include throat irritation, breathing difficulties, headaches, skin conditions, and mental health problems.
