Meth Lab Testing | Meth Residue Testing Services
Discrete Laboratory Meth Testing
This method involves taking multiple surface samples from a property that are sent to an independent laboratory for analysis. Results from this type of meth testing will provide exact reading of methamphetamine contamination levels, allowing a remediation action plan (RAP) to be created from the results. Without these laboratory meth testing results, a tailored meth lab cleanup quote is not possible. To discuss meth testing further or get a quote, contact Meth Lab Cleaners today on 1300 246 429.
Meth Testing Kits
Home test kits are available that identify a full range of drug residue. Meth Lab Cleaners Australia offer an inexpensive, on the spot test for meth residue. However, it should be noted, a positive test for meth residue does not necessarily indicate manufacturing was done in the house. It does indicate that the finished product was present. If you require assistance with meth lab testing in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin, Cairns or anywhere throughout Australia. Meth test kits can be purchased over the phone and provide an instant positive or negative reading.
Safe Levels of Meth Contamination
In order to deem a property used as a Meth Lab as safe, the level of methamphetamine found must be less than the accepted Australia Standard of 0.5µg/100cm2 of meth.
Meth Lab Cleaners Australia provide property owners both a pre and post meth lab forensic testing results.
Pre forensic testing can significantly reduce costs associated in the remediation process by singling out contaminated areas only and the automatic discarding of any furnishings or materials too contaminated to be cleaned.
Why Conduct Meth Testing?
- To establish the reference conditions preceding remediation
- To ensure health and safety of any person working onsite both before and during the remediation process
- To meet sampling requirements needed by banks, insurance companies, property owners or any other associated private or site entity
- To help quantify remediation costs
Older recipes for methamphetamine left staining and chemical odours. New recipes make the manufacturing process odourless. Methamphetamine does not have a distinctive colour or odours. Increasingly, the only way to detect residue of meth manufacture is chemical testing.
Perhaps the most crucial stage of a meth lab remediation process, the post forensic test and validation for re-habitation determines whether the property has been cleared to a safe, bio-hazard and chemical free state, and to comply with the Australia standards, the final finding must be less than 0.5µg/100cm2 of meth. This is the standard level considered safe for human habitation in Australia.
The Spread of Meth Residue
Most chemicals used are volatile organic compounds, explosives, acids, bases, metals and chemical salts. Carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tile, wood and fabric absorb these materials. Furniture and draperies can become contaminated. Residue can be drawn into the heating/cooling system and distributed throughout the house. Spilled chemicals can contaminate walls, floors and counters. Chemicals disposed of by dumping in the yard pollute the soil, poured down the drain they can damage a septic system and leach into groundwater. For every pound of meth produced, 5-6 pounds of waste are left. Suspected chemical dumping in soil and sewage system should be reported to your local health department.
Clandestine drug labs or meth labs are highly volatile and dangerous, and present extreme risk of toxic, poisonous and corrosive exposure to anyone who comes in contact with the lab or its surrounds.
Discrete laboratory meth testing samples collected from a meth lab or meth contaminated property is the only way to determine what needs to be remediated, and what doesn’t.
