What is Meth?

Methamphetamine (also known as Meth, Crystal Meth and Ice) is an illicit drug that is rapidly growing in use and manufacture around Australia.   In fact, the number of Meth users has increased by 3 times since 2011 and the number of Meth Labs has more than doubled in the last six years. And these results are based on the labs that are actually busted, as little as 1 in 10. When Meth is smoked or manufactured in a property, it can leave an odorless, invisible residue that can only be detected through proper testing. If your house has been used as a clandestine lab or the past occupants had smoked the drug heavily, it is believed that this can create health issues for you and your family.  Refer to the Australian Government Clandestine Drug Remediation Guidelines published in 2011.

What happens if Meth was used in my home?

Methamphetamine Contamination is considered at an unacceptable level when tests show a positive result over 0.5μg/100cm².  Over this level, it is recognised to be harmful to human and environmental health.  Just as mold spores can cause ill health, so can Meth Contamination.  The known side effects of living with high levels of Meth in your environment are breathing problems, skin and eye irritation, respiratory irritation, headaches, nausea and dizziness. In addition, babies and toddlers are at risk of ingesting the residue if they are crawling on the carpet and it contains residue. If a positive result is returned and the property requires decontamination, it is recommended that this be conducted by a cleaner specialising in this type of decontamination.

When do you need to have your house tested for Meth?

  • Pre-Purchase Meth Testing – save costly repairs / clean up and have the property that you are looking at purchasing tested for Meth if you suspect that it may have been used or manufactured at the property.
  • Home Owners – If you suspect that your home has previously been used for Meth or there is somebody currently using it for Meth?  Contact us today.
  • Landlords – Have your investment property tested before listing it if suspect that it might contain Meth Residue.
  • Renters – Before renting a property or during your tenancy if you are experiencing unexplained illness.
  • Property Managers – Make this test part of the regular end of tenancy procedure to ensure that your duty of care is met before new tenants move in.

Meth testing Brisbane

How is the Meth Screen conducted?

Testing a property for Meth is a non -invasive swab test that is conducted by a trained and qualified inspector.  An indicative swab test can be conducted with further testing sent onto the lab for comprehensive analysis if required.  The testing is discreet and accurate.

What meth testing services are available?

Dedant Building and Pest Inspections have a range of services available in Meth screening to suit your needs.

Limited Rapid field test – 4 swabs are taken in the property.  Locations are selected based on common usage locations or as per the clients request. The results will indicate the room is positive, negative or partially contaminated with meth residue.  If a positive result is obtained, it is recommended that a follow up lab test be conducted to confirm the level of contamination.

Uses – Pre-Purchase Inspection,  New home owners / tenants who suspect that meth residue might be in the property, property managers at the end of lease, landlords to ensure the house is clean. 

Comprehensive Rapid field test – every room in the property is swabbed with results available on the spot. The results will indicate the room is positive, negative or partially contaminated with meth residue.  If a positive result is obtained, it is recommended that a follow up lab test be conducted to confirm the level of contamination.

Uses – New home owners / tenants who suspect that meth residue might be in the property, property managers at the end of lease, landlords to ensure the house is clean.

Lab Testing –  Will determine the extent of contamination.  Swabs are taken as per Australian Standards and sent for laboratory analysis.  The results will confirm the level of contamination.

Uses – If positive results are shown in rapid testing, we would recommend a lab test.

Based on 23 reviews
I requested a Building and Pest inspection with them a few weeks ago. I have no negative... reviews at all! 100% 5 starts!!The easy and clear communication, the availability to fit my schedule, the competitive price and the quick service! It was all great dealing with them! I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends.But I need to mention that Bob (the person that did the job) is one in a million! He is so kind and lovely, and was patiently going through all my questions and enquires! Not to mention he was very cautious with the inspection, and because I was running out of time, he sent me the report in less than half an hour!Bob, you’re such a great guy, and I’m thankful that you were the one doing this for me! Thank you so much for your time that day, and for being so understanding. I made so many notes and you explained how it all works and what I should be worried about. You are the best!!5 starts for the company, and 10 starts for Bob!!!- Cecilia Costaread more

Buying a house is such a daunting experience but at least the building and pest portion... was a breeze thanks to dedant. I had quite a few questions about the report and I called my inspector and he had all the time in the world to explain it all to me with patience. He made it all very clear and gave me solid recommendations as to how I can rectify any of the faults that he picked up. A really great experience and would use again.read more

We got a pre-purchase B&P inspection done last week and were really happy with the... report. It was very detailed and easy to understand (and at a reasonable price!). During the inspection, Stephen and his colleagues kindly took the time to explain some of the defects they found as well as paid special attention to damaged areas that we were concerned about following the recent heavy rain. The office staff who organised the booking were also very friendly and helpful. Overall, great experience as a first time home buyer.read more

I have used Dedant Building and Pest twice so far. I had to get done the inspection... quickly (as it was once of the conditions of the purchase) and the team was quick to give me a slot in less than a week!The report was sent promptly (same day of inspection) as I had prepaid. I was able to discuss the report with the inspector.One thing which can be improved - I had forgotten to discuss one point on the report and when I called the inspector the next day he did not answer and insisted on sending query on SMS, he did respond to my SMS but personally I would have preferred if he said the same thing by answering my call for few seconds!read more
