ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV) – Individuals who buy or rent a home in St. Charles County will have some assurance that dangerous chemicals are not lurking inside.
The county passed a new law which sets standards for how homes are cleaned after a meth lab bust.
Last week, St. Charles County officials sent letters to seven property owners telling them that clean-up companies could have to go by the new guidelines.
“They may not necessarily have had the training to be able to clean up. It was just somebody that said they could clean stuff up, but they were not following any protocols or any other standards or guidelines for doing that,” Wayne Anthony, Director of Community Development, said.
If the property owners do not clean properly, the electricity could be shut off to make sure no one moves in before it is safe.
