Meth use and the discovery of drug and meth labs across Australia is on the rise. Smoking meth in your home can leave behind a residue which is toxic, not only to those who live in the property, but also to anyone who may access the property. Master Property Inspections are now offering quick, affordable, reliable and confidential methamphetamine screen assessments
THE HEALTH RISKS
Exposure to methamphetamine can cause a wide range of health problems including:
- Behavioral problems in children
- Loss of appetite
- Respiratory issues
THE FINANCIAL RISKS
Contamination levels greater than .50μg per 100cm2 are dangerous and require a property to be remediated which can be a very costly exercise. Remediation might involve treating or ripping out carpet, soft furnishings, removing furniture, wall linings, ceilings, electrical wiring, air conditioners, heating and insulation. Discovering contamination early on makes remediation less expensive. It also means that meth-using tenants can be evicted before contamination levels increase any further.
WE TEST FOR THE PRESENCE OR RESIDUE OF METHAMPHETAMINE
Smoking meth regularly can return property contamination readings as high as those produced by a meth lab.
Meth labs can be found almost anywhere – in houses, apartments, cars, storage units, holiday homes and motorhomes.
