    When to Get Meth Testing?

    Legal consequences occur due to meth residue in homes. Our Meth assessment services can provide immediate results for you and help keep your mind at ease. Unfortunately, meth contamination is hard to see, it is essentially invisible and has hardly any smell. It is becoming a large threat with the increasing amount of meth users in Australia.

    FAQ's

    What is Meth

    Methamphetamine is a powerful, highly addictive central nervous system stimulant that is mainly used as a recreational drug and less commonly as a second-line treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obesity.

    It takes the form of a white, odourless, bitter-tasting crystalline powder that easily dissolves in water or alcohol.

    What is the difference between a meth lab and a user site?

    A meth lab can be set up using common household equipment and chemicals. The different ways of making meth can involve explosives, solvents, metals, salts, and corrosives. Meth labs have been found in homes, sheds, barns, motel and hotel rooms, outside in the woods, and can also be classed as rolling meth labs in car trunks that are often moved to a secluded location where the strong, toxic fumes of methamphetamine manufacture cannot be detected and where the toxic manufacturing byproducts can be discarded.

    A user site is a place where regular smoking of methamphetamine has impacted the environment either inside or outside of the property.

    What is the health impact of residue from meth?

    The health risks associated with methamphetamine manufacturing or use contamination are highest for children who live in these contaminated environments when compared to adults. Children’s metabolic processes are more susceptible to the effects of chemicals/ drugs than adults. The most reported symptoms of methamphetamine exposure include headache, nausea/ vomiting, respiratory difficulty and eye irritation.

    Due to the contamination to the structure from the different chemicals that can be used to manufacture methamphetamine, meth manufacture holds the highest risk for health-related symptoms compared to contamination from a user.

    Are there any signs my property has been utilized for meth production?

    When chemicals, waste materials or operations are identified that are suspected to be associated with a clandestine drug laboratory or hydroponic plantation, Landlord/property managers should immediately leave the premises (without touching or handling anything) and inform the police. 

     Clandestine Drug Laboratory Indicators 

    • Windows blacked out or blocked, and strange or unusual ventilation
    • Presence of unusually high level of security
    • Strong odours of acetone, ammonia, solvents or sour “cat urine” type odours
    • Large numbers of matches
    • Large quantities of empty cold medication packages
    • Jars or containers (often modified) filled with clear liquid with white or red solids at the bottom, or containers with two layered liquids (one darker and one more pale)
    • Containers empty or full (labelled as acids, starter fluids, rubbing alcohol, solvents)
    • Presence of caustic drain cleaners/openers, iodine containers or crystals, instant cold packs
    • Coffee filters, sheets, pillowcases or old clothing with a white pasty substance, red sludge or crystals
    • Burns, powder residues, crystalline residues on benches
    • Propane tanks with fittings that have turned blue
    • Presence of various jars, glassware (including round or flat bottom flasks)
    • Heating devices such as camp stoves and hot plates
    • Presence of tubing, pumps, coffee grinder, compressed gas tanks

    Is testing the only way to confirm or refute meth contamination in a house?

    Yes, this is correct. As meth contamination is typically invisible, testing is the only way to confirm or deny meth’s presence in a property. 

    DIY test kids are available and are usually a good starting point for homeowners or prospective homeowners who are suspicious of a property’s history.

    If a DIY test kit returns a positive result, further inspection and laboratory testing can be carried out by IECL trained technicians to confirm both the existence and level of contamination present within the property.

    What are the recommended methamphetamine contamination levels

    ChemicalsResidential levels/criteria- indoor surfaces (µg/100cm2)Residential levels/criteria – Roof spaces (µg/100cm2)Commercial/Industrial levels/criteria (µg/100cm2)
    Methamphetamine0.51010
    Pseudoephedrine/ephedrine6001000010000

    Investigation levels presented in the Australian Guidelines (AG & ACC 2011) µg/100cm2 = micrograms per 100cm2

    Whilst residue arising from methamphetamine manufacturing is considered to be associated with health risks, the level of methamphetamine residue that is considered to pose that risk varies around the world.
