Information for landlords and estate agents about meth contamination:
Real estate agents need to be aware to the prevalence of meth residue contamination in properties up for sale or rent. In the 2015-16 period alone, over 144 clandestine meth labs were discovered and seized by Victorian police. Alarmingly, this is well over the national average. However, studies indicate only 10% of all meth labs are being found. Additionally, meth residue contaminated properties are just as likely, if not more likely, to be caused by occasional and habitual meth use. These figures indicate just how alarming and prevalent meth residue contamination is in Melbourne and Victoria. Hence, testing your property for meth residue contamination in Melbourne before purchasing, leasing or renting, is a fundamental must.
Pre-purchase meth inspections:
Without your knowledge, a property you are considering purchasing or renting could have been a meth lab in the past or its previous residents may have been users, contaminating the property. This would harm the safety and well being of the current or future residents or owners. Professional Meth Residue Testing Services delivers cost effective meth testing services with high accuracy lab testing and fast turnaround of the results.
Meth residue decontamination & cleaning:
Each Meth Lab Clean Up in Melbourne or Victoria has its own unique set of difficulties. Normal cleaning with household cleaners will not remove meth residue and the chemicals from your property. Meth lab decontamination can involve a number of stringent and important steps followed by trained meth lab decontamination technicians to ensure the property is left in a non-hazardous, occupiable state.
