Buying or Renting – Test for Meth Contamination
Meth Residue Testing plays an important role in maintaining the safety and integrity of property purchases and rentals across Brisbane and regional Queensland. Purchasing, renting or leasing a property contaminated by meth residue can lead to significant fiscal and personal issues for homeowners, property managers and investors.
Over the 2015-16 period, over 234 clandestine meth labs were detected and seized by Queensland police. More concerning is the fact that this is well above the nations average and 100 more than the nearest rival. However, studies indicate only 10% of all meth labs are being found. Alarmingly, 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 Queensland. As a result, testing your property for meth residue contamination in Brisbane before purchasing, leasing or renting has never been more important.
