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.

I was recommended to dedant in 2017 for a building and pest report and have gone onto use... them for termite barrier protection, annual inspections and another building and pest. Super easy to make bookings and a fair price. They work well by email and phone. The thing I would change is that I do want the inspector to try harder to reach the roof the house is 2 storeys and the inspector never manages to reach that high. Same thing with the crawl space under the house. Most of it is >40cm, but some of it might be less & the inspector doesn't try to inspect underneath.read more

The inspector turned up on time and met all requirements of the real estate and current... owner. Walked me through some of the issues he found and helped me to understand the implications. I was disappointed with the report, but I think that is a common feeling for me with all pre-purchase inspection reports. A 64-page report that really only provided me with some good information but always seemed to be followed by a recommendation to have an expert in a particular aspect of construction before purchase. Clearly this absolves the inspector of absolutely any accountability for issues found after purchase. There were 17 pages in the report which were terms and conditions and detracted from the report content. I'd like to see those T&Cs in a separate document (perhaps before engaging the provider) so I could focus on the information specific to my property in the report.read more
