We provide a Home Meth-Testing Service to keep you and your family safe.
Meth contamination in properties is growing concern, and statistics show this is not going to go away.
It’s an unfortunate problem, and alarmingly it is reported that Australia has the highest number of meth users per capita in the Western world. Fortunately, South Building Inspections provide a Home Meth-Testing Service to ensure you and the residents of your property are living in a healthy environment.
Meth contamination, which is invisible and has no smell, carries a number of issues that relate to health risks of occupants living in the property, as well as legal and financial concerns.
As a property owner, Australian laws dictate that meth contamination above 0.5 micrograms in a 100cm² space is not acceptable for habitation; landlords are at risk of facing lawsuits from tenants moving into a contaminated property and adjoining neighbours may also seek legal advice.
Contamination levels 0.5μg/100cm² require a property to be remediated – this is a costly endeavour and can require treating or removing carpet, curtains, wall linings, ceilings, electrical wiring, air conditioners, heating and insulation. Of course, the earlier contamination is discovered, the less expensive it will be to remediate.
Methamphetamine residue can carry a number of health related problems for the occupants. These can include respiratory problems, headaches, skin/eye irritation and children may develop behavioural and/or sleep problems.
