Meth Residue Testing
Residue from methamphetamine used or created by previous occupants of a building can remain on surfaces for many years. Extended exposure to methamphetamine may have negative health effects for current occupants. To ensure that your property is safe, we can provide meth residue testing to determine if there is meth contamination in your premises. We offer both onsite sampling with laboratory testing, and DIY instant results testing kit through our sister company IECL.
#Why Do I Need to Test for Methamphetamine?
Unfortunately, past owners or residents of your property may have used the property as an illegal meth lab, leaving significant meth residue. This residue is invisible, and while sometimes there can be a chemical-like smell, often this smell is not present even with high levels of contamination. Meth residue exposure may have negative health effects, including headaches, eye irritation, respiratory difficulty and nausea or vomiting. These risks are higher for children.1
If you suspect that a past owner or occupant has used your property to manufacture methamphetamine, or this has been confirmed, meth testing should be done to ensure that any meth residue is below dangerous levels. This ensures that you can safely occupy, sell or rent your property without danger of damage to occupants or users. Contact us for more information about or meth testing services.

These tests can be either pass/fail, or with detailed measurements, depending on your requirements. A detailed report is also provided. Call now to enquire or book this service. (Please note that we cannot perform testing, scoping or assessment for properties that are police-identified, verified meth labs. However, we can clean these meth labs based on a scope of works that has been assessed by a professional occupational hygienist.
