The levels of meth residue can be used to determine what may have happened and for how long on a specific site. Testing also helps determine the scope and extent of the remediation process
. To claim to be able to neutralize meth is usually an indicator that you are dealing with an inexperienced contractor. There are very few chemicals that can be used to completely destroy the meth molecule and can be very dangerous when not handled appropriately. They can also cause more damage to the property (corrosion). Also, there is no data regarding the affects these chemicals have on the other contaminants involved. In short, you do not know what is being left behind. In most cases, these chemicals will only break enough of the bonds of the marker (meth molecule) to render the meth non detectable at the laboratory. Many states have outlawed
the use of known oxidizers.
