Many home buyers unknowingly buy homes contaminated by methamphetamine, which when smoked or manufactured, release dangerous chemicals into the air that can cling to clothing, carpets, and walls. A dream home can quickly turn into a nightmare. A contaminated home can not only cause sickness but also be uninhabitable for a long time. We have come across home buyers who have spent tens of thousands of dollars in remediation and reconstruction, adding financial burden and delay to moving in.
The health consequences of contamination in the home can be serious, and young children are particularly at risk. If the property you’re thinking of buying was previously occupied by meth users or once contained a meth lab, you should have it decontaminated by professional meth lab cleaning technicians before moving in. Even if the property has no past connections to meth, you should consider using a DIY drug testing kit or have professional technicians inspect the property before moving in to ensure no traces of contamination.
Home test kits are available that identify a full range of drug residue. Biohazard Cleaning offers an inexpensive, on the spot test for meth residue. However, it should be noted, a positive test for meth residue does not necessarily indicate manufacturing was done in the house. It does indicate that the finished product was present.
Before you make an offer to buy the home, always ensure that you have completed a home inspection for meth. Our Meth Lab Remediation and Decontamination technicians are qualified to properly inspect and clear homes for meth contamination and other chemicals. Internationally trained in HAZMAT and Methamphetamine Decontamination and Remediation techniques, Biohazard Cleaning is the industry leader in meth lab testing, decontamination and clean ups in across all locations in Australia.
