Fentanyl: exposure and safety 

In March 2015, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued a nationwide alert on fentanyl as a threat to health and public safety. Fentanyl is a dangerous, powerful Schedule II narcotic responsible for an epidemic of overdose deaths within the United States. Fentanyl, up to 50 times more potent than heroin, is extremely dangerous to anyone who may come into contact with it. As a result, it represents an unusual hazard for law enforcement, first responders, and the general public. It has been reported that having exposure to a very small amount may lead to significant health related complications, respiratory depression, or death. 

Solace Bio is certified and trained in handling and proper cleaning of this substance.

methamphetamines: what to know

Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Methamphetamine comes in several forms and can be smoked, snorted, injected, or orally ingested. Methamphetamine production is also an environmental concern; it involves many easily obtained chemicals that are hazardous, such as acetone, anhydrous ammonia (fertilizer), ether, red phosphorus, and lithium. Toxicity from these chemicals can remain in the environment around a methamphetamine production lab long after the lab has been shut down, causing a wide range of damaging effects to health. Because of these dangers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has provided guidance on cleanup and remediation of methamphetamine labs.

dangers of methamphetamine residue

It is an important responsability of Solace Bio to properly educate our community on the dangers of methamphetamine residue. When methamphetamine, commonly referred to as "meth" or "crystal meth", is ingested through smoking it will leave an oil residue, similar to nicotine found in cigarettes. However, only proper cleaning agents have the ability to breakdown the chemical compound and disinfect the contaminated area. Residue left in a home can be widespread and is absorbant through the skin, causing long term health complications. 


If you suspect that you are living in a home that may be contaminated, call Solace Bio for proper testing.
