Today’s A Doozey

ABT cleans up Meth LabsSo I got up this morning saying “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job” over and over in the shower. I looked at myself in the mirror when I got out and had to laugh. I remember doing this very thing at my last job. So, that must mean that this is a job, like any job, there are days when you would like to pull the covers over your head and stay in bed!

Now I love working at ABT with Jerry and my other teammates. The team is an awesome bunch of folks from diverse backgrounds. When we work together we can pass the time quickly exchanging stories from our life experiences as well as our take on the scene we are working on. That part can be fun and can stir up lots of fun as you can imagine.

Jerry is fair and square, we all like him. He brings a lot of knowledge and experience to this company. Some of us had to learn new ways to do things and some of us contribute ideas and experience to the table so it works well.

We had to travel several hours to get to this job. This nasty place was once a bustling Meth lab. Dudes not only cooked the Meth here, they got into a nasty disagreement over money and a couple of them ended up dead.

Meth labs are gross. The fumes get into every nook and cranny of the place. It just makes me sick to think why anyone would want to do this to their body to get high. I would think the mixture of chemicals would scare anyone off!

Safety Is KEY Dealing With Meth

Safety is key at ABTAnyway, there are a lot of regs about this type of cleanup, both the Feds and the State have their rules so we have to follow them for each state we are in as well as the standards set by ABT and everyone else.

The crap is hazardous to anyone who is exposed to its fumes, residue or whatever you want to call it. There are technical terms for everything I’m saying here but making my point as a cleanup tech, trust me its a nasty business.

I hear stories of people cooking meth in hotel rooms on the run or in the back of a van or pickup truck with campers on them. They catch people like that with kids in the room and they get in a lot of trouble as they should! They’re just thinking of making a buck or getting high, not a thought to the kid’s future health! Makes me angry. Add that to the list of things I just don’t understand about people.

Shit gets everywhere, even the furnace filters have to be replaced.
Remember, you can’t handle a meth lab cleanup on your own. The laundry list of poisonous chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine clings to surfaces and lingers in the air. Unprotected exposure can result in everything from headaches, dizziness and nausea to chemical burns, birth defects, blindness, respiratory ailments, liver damage, and even kidney failure.
