The biggest threat to a residential home is a meth user, because smoking methamphetamine’s regularly inside the home, can contaminate the surfaces of the home. A regular smoker of the drug can create such a high level of contamination, and will be detected when we are testing for methamphetamine residual.
While methamphetamine residue is odourless and invisible the exposure can cause a wide range of health problems, including, respiratory problems, headaches, susceptibility to illness and eye and skin irritation. Children are more susceptible to the side effects of methamphetamine.
Methamphetamine contamination can be expensive to remove, and may require extensive cleaning. Or in some cases the removal of all the affected materials such as carpets, curtains and wall and ceiling linings.
We will conduct a lateral low rapid test at the time of your pre-purchase building inspection, which will provide immediate results, on the presence of methamphetamine for $220 including GST.
We can also conduct lab-based test of your home, which this type of test requires seven days to receive the test results, and will provide the level of methamphetamine contamination to the home. This type of testing is priced on application.
