Meth labs are increasingly common, and Fentanyl is quickly becoming a more significant hazard. Fentanyl overtook Methamphetamine in Washington State in 2020 as the most commonly overdosed drug. A common use of Fentanyl involves crushed-up pills, which are then snorted or smoked. Its extreme potency makes it a deadly hazard, as two milligrams of Fentanyl, a tiny amount, is enough to be fatal, so fentanyl testing is vital to the safety of anyone working or living in a site where the drug may have been manufactured or used. Methamphetamine testing is also necessary to determine if meth lab cleanup is required.
Stolen vehicles that have been recovered should always be tested for Meth and Fentanyl before the owner reclaims the car (accidental exposure can be fatal to children and adults) and before any other work is done to the vehicle, so repair teams are not exposed to potentially deadly hazards. It’s prevalent for stolen cars to test positive for the presence of these drugs. Bio Management Northwest will come to your site to complete drug testing and quickly provide results.
Clandestine Drug Labs are sites where illegal synthetic drugs, particularly methamphetamine and fentanyl, are secretly manufactured using improvised materials and methods. Meth labs used to create methamphetamine are found in many locations, including homes and rental apartments. Contamination from chemicals used to produce meth creates a high risk of developing illnesses, including neurological damage. When contamination occurs, you need a meth and fentanyl home inspection followed by comprehensive cleanup. Our drug property cleanup services in Washington and Oregon will give you peace of mind that your property is safe for the next tenant.
Hotel & Hospitality
Meth, a toxic mix of household chemicals and over-the-counter medicines — leaves vapors and residue on everything it touches: fabrics, carpet, paneling, and drywall. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid with deadly results. It is used to create methamphetamine, molly, ecstasy, heroin, and other recreational drugs. Clandestine Drug Labs should always be tested for Fentanyl and Methamphetamines. Exposure to as little as two mg can be fatal.

We recommend you complete a comprehensive home meth test or clinical drug testing before making an offer on a home or transitioning a rental property to a new tenant. The meth and fentanyl home inspection should test specifically for fentanyl, meth, and other chemical contaminants. Bio Management Northwest is qualified to complete meth and fentanyl home testing in Oregon and Washington to detect trace contaminants.
