There are plenty of meth houses in the Salt Lake Valley that need to be cleaned up. But it's a dirty job.
It is not like sprinkling a little cleanser and polishing the floor with wax. A property owner calls a private contractor who, in some cases, will spray liquid to decompose the walls and floors of meth.
"We wear protection while we're spraying it, however it's not so caustic that we can't wash our hands in it," said Mike Rowzee with Certified Decontamination.
He says sanitizing one house can cost about $5,000.
"I've been doing this for almost nine years now. I've cleaned up hundreds of them. There are that many out there," he said.
He says his work crews worry more about the bacteria than the meth when they're clearing out a house.
