Note: The City of Jacksonville maintains an ‘Unsafe For Use’ Property List that can be used to reference a list of properties that are believed to have been used as illegal drug manufacturing sites.
Compliance Issues: If you’ve been notified of a City of Jacksonville Code Compliance issue in regards to a meth lab, HomePro cannot complete your meth lab testing. Meth lab testing and cleanup for clearing a compliance issue must be completed by an approved contractor. You need to contact the Code Compliance Department for specific instructions at (904) 255-7000. For additional information, visit this website.
In Duval and St. Johns counties, properties where drug contamination is found must be certified as clean before they can be occupied again. The certification process includes an evaluation, testing, cleaning by approved contractors (who are typically vetted by the county for their expertise), and more testing after cleanup is completed. Contact your county code compliance office for a list of approved contractors.
