It should be noted, a positive test for meth residue does not necessarily indicate manufacturing there was a meth lab in your home. It does indicate that the finished product was present, this could be a result of heavy smoking of methamphetamine or a smaller “Shake and Bake” cooking method – both resulting is toxic contamination.
Meth Lab testing kits can be used in any home, boat, vehicle, motel, hotel, shed or anywhere a suspected drug lab has been operating. A Home meth lab test kit will return a positive or negative meth detection result within minutes. Each Home Meth Testing Kit comes with instructions and is extremely easy to use.
If buying a property we recommend conducting a meth test prior to making an offer or going to contract.
A Meth Testing kit works rapidly to indicate whether levels of methamphetamine exceed the 0.5µg/100cm2. The DIY Meth Testing Kit will only show positive results when in excess of safe levels: 0.5ug or higher (micrograms or parts per million) .
Older recipes for methamphetamine leave staining and chemical odours. New recipes make the manufacturing process odourless. Methamphetamine may not have a distinctive colour or odour. Increasingly, the only way to detect residue of meth manufacture was official chemical testing by a laboratory, Lab results will give you a full set of contamination levels when compared to the DIY instant Kit however Lab testing is much more expensive.
If your test kit returns a positive line, we recommend you call us to obtain more detailed analysis and have each room tested for contamination. Swabs will then be sent to a NATA accredited lab for accurate testing. Only then can we take the next step of developing a Remediation Action Plan (RAP).
DON’T RISK BUYING A PROPERTY BEFORE TESTING IT FOR METH RESIDUE – ITS JUST NOT WORTH IT.
