I have such a home. There are DEEPLY SPECIFIC RULES to decontamination, as I, a regular homemaker..have learned. In the last three months, after moving into my home...and finding that it was a meth lab... it seems, I have learned far more about these specific rules that I ever wanted to know! And I have learned that not all professionals work with due diligence during the formal processes.
As a matter of fact, Quest Environmental has been certified as the final home inspector for my home. As a matter of fact, because of MY due diligence, and unwillingness to allow all companies involved, including the city and state, talk me into believing the final clearance report passed and my family's HEALTH and SAFETY are secured....Quest has now re-issued the clearance report. My home is NOT, in fact, clear of the contamination. There are statutes in places like Denver, that are written clearly, regarding the clean-up methods, the testers' necessary qualifications. If you have any idea that your home may have been used as a meth lab, or that it is possible that it is contaminated..please seek a home meth test kit. VERY worth your while. I, myself, had an angel in disguise as a forensic industrial hygienist... come and do PROFESSIONAL testing and inspection..
Thus, we are currently moving out..not knowing where we will live!
POSSIBLE SIGNS of CONTAMINATION:
in home: melted spots on carpet or other fire damage areas, drains look like they are eaten away drastically, ash piles in yard, dead brush areas in yard(6 pounds of waste for a small batch-has to go somewhere), strange iodine discoloration on walls and such, IMPROPER DECONTAMINATION: coughing and harsher voice, feelings of itching on skin like tingles/pricks..dog has non stop itch, pain in joints(you or dog), hard to sleep IF YOU GO TO DOCTOR, a meth free pee test does not rule out that the VOCs(precursors~ingredients in math manufacturing) can be causing above symptoms...
Make sure that you have someone whom does not just say they are qualified...they MUST have had higher training for this subject matter. Meth contaminations can cause serious injury or death..especially in young ones...when I get settled, my new middle name will be 'Erin Brockovich', if you know what I mean! (movie)
Peace and Health, L

Oh, it sounds like you are living through a nightmare. I am so sorry. Different issues, but a couple houses ago we discovered that the professionals that came highly recommended and on whom we were dependent to make sure our home was safe let us down terribly as well. It is such a feeling of betrayal. I don't mind having to do my own due diligence, but when companies/professionals throughout the process seem willing to cut corners, it is both hard to combat and hard to stomach.

I hope your home is soon safe and I do love that you feel moved to keep this from happening to others. Let us know how things proceed.

Ok, so now I know what's worse than having bedbugs (which has always been my big fear). Wow. Sorry to hear about your troubles, but thanks for sharing the info. Good luck to you!

bed bugs are gross..but at least you can SEE them! i always freaked about lice!!! now, i would rather have lice for the first time in my life!
steam kills all those things....dead. tearing down walls and flooring the house is the only things that will kill the meth contaminated home!
