Using D7 in Meth Lab Remediation


meth lab remediation

Chemical cleanup, including meth lab remediation, requires effective products that neutralize or remove toxic chemicals. The safety of cleanup crews and future occupants is also a prime consideration. That’s why it is essential to select products that are safe to use, effective against meth lab chemicals and byproducts, and eliminate toxic residue. 

D7 was developed to neutralize chemical weapons that terrorists might use, making it effective in a variety of applications, including fireground decontamination and meth lab remediation.

How D7 Help Meth Lab Remediation

One of the components of the D7 formulation is a detergent that dissolves chemicals. This detergent also penetrates any grease or dirt on surfaces to reach the toxic chemicals below. Once dissolved, the hydrogen peroxide in the formulation neutralizes the chemicals, making them safe to remove from the contaminated area. This is an essential consideration for the wastewater generated from meth lab cleanup. 

D7 can be applied in multiple ways, including foam, spray, soak, and fog. Because the products are versatile and noncorrosive, they can decontaminate:

Advantages of Using D7 for Meth Lab Remediation

D7can be used in portable systems to treat apartments, homes, hotel rooms, vehicles, and anywhere else a meth lab was set up. Although there are many products available on the market,D7 offer specific advantages in meth lab remediation

Versatile Application Methods

One of the major advantages of using D7 for meth lab remediation is its versatility. The easy-to-apply foam can be used on walls, ceilings, and other vertical surfaces, allowing crews to see where the product is applied. The clinging foam also stays on surfaces for the minimum recommended contact time. 

Liquid spray directly treats surfaces and upholstery, whereas a fogger deploys the product as a fine mist and covers every surface in a room. D7 can also be used to launder fabric or soak items that are otherwise difficult to treat with spray.

Efficient Application to Save Crew Time

Many companies that use D7 have found that they can use smaller crews, reduce labor costs, and complete jobs faster. This ultimately gives them the capacity to take on more work.  

Minimal PPE Required

The low-toxicity formulation is safer to use than other products and therefore requires less personal protective equipment (PPE). This makes it more comfortable for crews to apply compared to other products and reduces time onsite without the need to put on and remove PPE.

No Scrubbing Required

Some products require mechanical action to be effective. The detergent in D7 does the work for you, so no scrubbing is required to neutralize chemicals. This saves on both equipment and labor costs.

Reduced Costs for Customers

When smaller crews need less time, you can lower labor costs and pass those savings on to your customers. The D7 formulation also requires less product required to be effective, decontaminating with only one treatment. With these cost savings, you can be more competitive for meth lab remediation in your area.

Effective Decontamination of Drywall

Porous materials like drywall can be difficult to decontaminate if the product does not absorb into the walls. D7 foam stays on surfaces long enough to get absorbed so it can neutralize the chemicals inside. This is better for building owners because the drywall doesn’t have to be destroyed and replaced. If you can offer less invasive meth lab remediation, you’ll have an edge on the competition.
