How do you test your property for Meth?
The first step is to arrange for your property manager to perform a meth check using a Meth Test Kit. Meth testing kits can be purchased in Australia from Meth Lab Cleaners Australia and cost $199.00
These kits are designed to be used as indicators only. They should not be used to replace independent Lab testing.
The Home Meth Test Kit is used to wipe surfaces from multiple locations around the house like window ledges, above door frames, bathroom extraction vents, air-conditioning vents and benches. The swab is then placed into the solution and the vile cracked to check for a reaction. If the colour changes you might be in some serious trouble.
The next step is swab testing of individual rooms and areas. 1 swab per room per location, this could easily total 15-30 swabs. The swabs are then sent to a Accredited Science Laboratory for testing. Only then can we determine the right course of action for a clean up depending on which areas of the house are contaminated and how high the contamination level is.
