Meth labs in hotels are becoming more frequent. The reason is that meth cooks have anonymity in hotels. They can check in for a few days, cook their meth, and check out undetected. This also protects their homes from search warrants. If meth cooks are mobile they have less of a chance of getting caught.
Unfortunately meth cooks usually have their children with them. This video is an example of meth lab cooking in a hotel. Click here
Spaulding Decon has decontaminated a lot of hotel rooms from meth. Unfortunately if hotel owners and management are given the choice of whether to decontaminate the rooms or not, they will most often choose not to do so. That is unfortunate because the toxicity left behind is harmful to a persons health. Those with compromised immune systems are most susceptible.
It is important and prudent for hotel and motel owners to have their hotel rooms tested to ensure there is no meth contamination. Test kits are extremely reasonable. For $47 you can test four separate areas in a hotel room. That is sufficient to determine contamination. The samples are analyzed by a federally certified laboratory.
