Safety elements, llc., was one of the first methamphetamine testing companies in the State of Ohio. Since its beginning in 2007, safety elements has become experts in identifying contamination and providing information to those in need of the reassurance that their home or apartment will be suitable to inhabit. In addition, safety elements has testified for Ohio House Bill 33 and presented for the Ohio Health Department, Virginia and South Carolina Health Departments, multiple State of Ohio County Health Departments and was a member of the Summit County Methamphetamine Property Task Force. Recently, safety elements assisted the City of Akron with legislation regarding methamphetamine clean up.
Most testing companies are not familiar with the processes of methamphetamine manufacturing which hinders a thorough knowledge of where and what to look for when determining contamination. Our training, years of experience and relationships with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, DEA and Ohio Drug Task Forces, allow us the knowledge about current trends.
Its our belief that a testing company should not be associated or part of a decontamination company. In our opinion, this is a conflict of interest! The testing company provides the home owner the security of knowing that the decontamination conducted was done properly and completely. You will find that most state and local cleanup guidelines prohibit companies to test and clean. As stated, our expertise is testing and we channel all of our training and energy towards being at the forefront through knowledge, integrity, customer service and state-of-the-art equipment, providing the best and most economical service allowable.
Safety elements, llc. has consulted for health departments and assisted in developing criteria/standards for fire departments, police departments and public housing officials for identifying and disposing of clandestine drug lab paraphernalia and lab contents.
CERTIFICATION CAUTION! The State of Ohio does not endorse any type of certification for decontamination or testing companies. Be suspicious and question those companies who provide such (Ohio) certification. At this time, safety elements is assisting in the development of such criteria for the State, due to their knowledge of contamination, the "process" chemicals, testing and decontamination procedures.
Our Testing Team
Each of our inspectors perform your analyses as though it was their own home. Feel confident your home is being inspected by a qualified environmental health specialist, who is using the latest technology and testing methods. By utilizing a working knowledge of the ever changing methods used in the production of methamphetamine, our team is well equipped to detect contaminants in areas of your home that might otherwise go undetected.
Remember, testing is a vital part of the complete decontamination process of cleaning a home after being contaminated with methamphetamine. Be leery of cleaning companies who offer testing and cleaning services. Keep the cleaning companies "honest" by having the property tested by a "third" party testing firm...you will be glad you did!
