When a home is purchased it is common to get a building inspection and a pest inspection, yet a methamphetamine inspection is not common place. The same applies for rental properties – no one wants to move into a health hazard. The Australian government’s National Drug Strategy Household drug survey 2013 found about 1.3 million people (7%) had used methamphetamines in their lifetime with 667 ice labs mostly in residential houses being detected by police in 2014-2015 however it has been estimated that only 1 in 10 are actually busted by police.
While the effects of meth on users is well known, not many people understand the dangers meth labs and heavy meth use poses on residential property.
Did you know:
Professionally Cleaners Are Required To Remediate Property/Vehicles Where There Is Meth Residual?
In homes/vehicles that have gone undetected as meth labs or where there has been heavy use of the drug ice, chemical residue can seep into soft furnishing, carpets and even walls and ceilings, leaving unwitting new tenants or owners exposed to serious health risks. In a case in Victoria, two children tested positive for adult levels of methamphetamine after their family had unknowingly spent 2 years living in a former drug lab that had never been remediated.
The SKC MethChek Kit is the perfect inexpensive solution for people to provide on the spot initial assessments of methamphetamine contamination before deciding if further testing or a remediation strategy is required. MethChek® Kits provide on-the-spot semi-quantitative assessment of meth residue at the lowest state clean-up guideline of 50ng/100 cm2 (100, 500, and 1500ng sensitivities also available).
The SKC MethChek is simple to use and results are easy to read. Simply wipe, extract, and read results.
Based on the recommendations of the Australia Government Clandestine Drug Laboratory Remediation Guidelines, the MethChek 500 is the most suitable for use in Australia. Regardless of the presences of methlamphetamine on inside surfaces at a level of greater than 0.5 micrograms (µg) per 100 cm2 is considered unacceptable.
MethChek Kits are available in single applications or packs of 12.
