Benchmark Environmental Engineering performs investigations for suspect and known methamphetamine lab contaminated properties. Based in San Jose, we work with California law enforcement agencies, property owners, property managers and insurance companies to investigate and cleanup properties affected by clandestine lab activities.
Meth Lab Inspections
Benchmark Environmental Engineering takes a multi-faceted approach to methamphetamine lab inspections. We begin with a preliminary site assessment, in which we perform a physical inspection of the building to determine what hazards are present. We review the police report about the lab, and interview the law enforcement officer involved in removing any meth precursors.
Meth Lab Testing
After completing our physical inspection of the property and consulting with law enforcement officials, we draft a sampling strategy, which we submit for approval by local agencies. After our testing plan has been approved, Benchmark Environmental Engineering’s team of certified industrial hygienists will proceed with gathering contamination samples from various areas of the building, which are analyzed by an accredited third-party laboratory.
Upon receiving the lab results, we design a work plan for the decontamination and clean-up of the property. We work with insurance companies as we put together an approved protocol that will remove the hazards posed by the meth lab. Benchmark Environmental Engineering provides project oversight while a licensed hazardous-waste removal contractor decontaminates the building. When the scope of work has been completed we take a post-decontamination verification sampling. With clean lab results, we write a closure report and process any documentation needed by local authorities and insurance companies to certify the building’s safety.
