TESTING &

DECONTAMINATING

We don’t just come and fog out your premises, we test it first! If you are suspicious that there was meth use at a property we can come and test the premises.

There are 3 types of tests that can be conducted.

Instant testing kit is a 10cm x 10 cm (rapid test) is placed on a wall in a room that is suspected to have been contaminated. The wall is swabbed and the reading comes up instantly and only gives you a positive or negative reading however doesn’t give you a number.

Lab test kit, swab the contaminated area and needs to be sent off to the lab for a positive or negative reading and also how high the reading. This form of testing is the most accurate. The test is sent back toa NATA accredited lab testing by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry if using the 9111 method.

The use of the same swab in multiple areas and will only give you a positive or negative reading but doesn’t give you the level of contamination. This form of testing is used if multiple areas are to be tested and it doesn’t require a level of contamination.

Decontaminating the premises.

If no precursors are present in the lab report then it is assumed that the property contaminated through smoking only. Smoking contamination between .05grmas-2grams can be cleaned down to below 0.5grams per 100cm2 using sugar soap. Contamination from usage 2-10grams can also be cleaned down using a heavier dusty NON DG product using triple wash method. Higher levels from usage or cooking normally will need to be decontaminated using a cleaning procedure utilizing more abrasive chemicals as Hydrogen Peroxide based products mixed with a surfactant.

Is there a level that won't require decontamination?

In Australia the acceptable (safe) level for Methamphetamine contamination of any area that is accessible for constant use by children or adults such as bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and living areas is 0.5grams (microns) /100cm2.
