Methamphetamine or Meth is a synthetic, man-made chemical-based drug, manufactured from poisonous chemicals and additives.
Personal use is one of the main effects this drug has within a property, due to the increase use of the drug some properties tested are returning high readings similar to that of a Meth lab setup.
Once the ingredients have been turned into Meth, a user will commonly smoke the poisonous and potentially deadly cocktail. The smoke produced from this process is not only harmful to the user but will linger in a property for many years to come by penetrating into any porous material including paint, plaster, wood, carpet, furniture, air conditioning systems and heating/cooling vents.
Due to the extreme level of toxins, once it has been absorbed into furnishings within a property, it may take as long as 200 years to break down, in the meantime creating a poisoned environment for any human to reside within.
Considering the above the best practice is to have the property formally tested to ensure it is a clean and habitable place to live. The easiest and most cost-effective way for this to be done is to have a Meth screen sampling test conducted. If a positive test is returned, a more thorough test will be conducted to identify the areas that require remediation.
Drug lab clean ups are complex and vary greatly depending on the property size, nature and extent of the decontamination, with this in mind we can provide end to end management of all remediation works, big or small.
With Meth use in Australia 3 times higher than in as many years, now more than ever it’s important to that all stakeholders protect their property and cover their obligations prior to selling or leasing.
Services we provide include but are not limited to:
- Onsite Meth testing
- Detailed reporting
- Remediation action plan and costings
- End to end management of remediation works
- Post remediation analysis and reporting/clearance
