I suspect meth usage or manufacturing in one of my Whitehead properties what should I do?
Often times meth usage and manufacturing is suspected in ones property or by neighboring people, but those involved have no idea what steps to take in order to verify or deal with the potential situation. The best course of action is to call the local authorities and let them take over, dial 911 and leave it to the police. As a neighboring tenant you should then follow up to see what the result of the investigation yielded. Residue can travel, and having joint shared walls with a unit with meth usage history means you too could be exposed, and you should request that the landlord have the unit tested and cleaned, as well as yours. As a landlord, you should immediately take corrective action to remove the lab and decontaminate the area, or if usage was determined have the area cleaned and decontaminated so the next incoming tenant and their family will be safe.

Meth and meth lab cleanup and decontamination and your legal liability as a property owner
It’s true that in many areas there are no regulations forcing you to cleanup a suspected or determined meth lab, or for that matter a property where even light meth usage is suspected, however there can be far reaching ramifications for ignoring the issue. In this case an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If you suspect, have been told, or someone present notes to you the presence of meth usage or a meth lab and you ignore the warning and don’t clean up the contaminated area, you will be liable for any long reaching effects of the contamination on future tenants and visitors. If illness or death occurs from the unattended exposure you have extreme legal risk and liability. With many Tennessee insurance policies covering meth cleanup based on the policy language, there is no reason to avoid the meth cleanup and lab teardown. Even if your policy doesn’t have proper coverage, the cost to mitigate a meth lab contamination is pennies compared to legal litigation that can leave you in deep financial debt. Don’t ignore meth contamination; take care of cleaning it up with the professionals at Danconia Restoration.
