Drug Lab Cleanup for Hydroponic Labs

DO NOT attempt it yourself!

Often only obvious dangers can be seen with the naked eye. Unseen dangers from vapours, mould and bacteria can cause other major health problems.

In many areas, illegal grow operations continue to be invasive problems, even becoming more so in areas where repercussions for marijuana possession have become laxer. Clandestine operations are present in many apartments and houses throughout Australia. If you have discovered a hydroponic lab on your property or believe one may have been run there before you moved in, don’t try to clean the area yourself; instead, hire professionals who have industry training in drug lab cleanup.

Drug labs are kept secret, so they tend to be in enclosed, poorly-ventilated spaces where fumes from chemicals such as pesticides can accumulate. An even bigger problem is the toxic levels of mould spores that could be present. Mould flourishes in the same warm, humid conditions marijuana plants love, so this is a common problem in grow houses.

Law enforcement officials who shut down illegal drug labs frequently experience respiratory problems due to dangerous levels of mould, sometimes even needing hospitalisation. Therefore, it has become more common for police to wear respirators when entering a grow operation to keep themselves safe from mould and chemicals.

If an illegal grow operation has been housed on your property, attempting to clean it up yourself can be harmful to your health. It can also be difficult, as mould and odours can be hard to remove. From chemical contamination to unhealthy levels of mould spores to moisture that can cause damage to structures, this job calls for trained professionals.
