Attorney Tonya Bond
The sad truth of methamphetamine use. Children often suffer. Most toys cannot be cleaned and must be discarded.
"THE METH SOLUTION"
was written to walk you step-by-step through each phase of cleanup for contaminated homes or property.
Are you a homeowner?
Do you own rental property?
Do you manage a motel/hotel chain?
This book was written to guide you through the steps needed to clean up meth residue leftover from the cooking of an illegal meth lab.
Excerpts from the book:
Chapter 1 - Overview:
"If you are a property owner or landlord with meth contaminated property,
this informative book is written for you."
Chapter 3 - Insurance Coverage:
"A policyholder should look to the first party property coverage first when looking
for coverage for methamphetamine contamination, but the liability coverage may also be available to respond in states, like Indiana, where courts have handed down
favorable coverage decisions on other environmental claims."
Chapter 9 - Personal Property:
"Research was conducted by the National Jewish Medical and Research Center to answer the question whether washing of clothing will remove the methamphetamine contamination."
Chapter 13 - Contaminated Property:
"Most state's regulations or guidelines provide the property owner with
three options of dealing with contaminated property."
Does this book really answer all your meth cleanup questions? The experts say, "Yes, it does!"
Chapter 18 - What Cleaning Products to Use?
"The EPA and most state guidelines simply state using detergent-water solution cleaners. Or they state using ordinary household cleaning products...But the EPA does not specify what household detergents their research or guidelines recommend to use."
Chapter 20 - Kill Meth Using Crystal Clean:
"As outlined in Chapter 19 and in many state guidelines, using ordinary household cleaners can require up to three washes to remove a majority of the methamphetamine contamination and then you still might not be below your state's regulatory cleanup standard. With Crystal Clean it neutralizes methamphetamine with just one application."
