Property Meth Testing and Decontamination Cleaning

Unfortunately, many Perth home owners and landlords are discovering that their homes have, or are being used, for making Crystal Methamphetamine. This can cause serious health concerns within the house for many years - long after the drug is used or made in the house.

Thankfully, there is something you can do about it. We offer fully accredited testing (by WA Department of Health approved contractor Occuhealth) and decontamination cleaning to ensure your home is 100% safe, with an emphasis on being discreet during these processes.

Methamphetamine Property Testing and Decontamination Cleaning Services

We offer services for Residential & Commercial properties.


Methamphetamine Property Pre-Screen Testing

We offer an inexpensive on-the-spot test for meth residue. A pre-screen test is an indication of meth residue present within a property or structure.

Methamphetamine Property Forensic Screen

A Forensic Screen (by WA Department of Health approved contractor Occuhealth) is undertaken after a positive result has been found in a pre-screen test. A Forensic Screen determines the level of meth residue found within a room or area.

Methamphetamine Property Decontamination Cleaning

After the levels of meth residue in the property or structure have been determined, we develop a remediation plan to decontaminate the property or structure of all meth residue.

Methamphetamine Property Post-Cleaning Screen

Completed after the decontamination cleaning, our post-cleaning forensic screen and validation (by WA Department of Health approved contractor Occuhealth) for rehabilitation determines whether the property has been cleared to a safe, bio-hazard and chemical free state as per the Australian standards.

Drug paraphernalia recover/disposal

We offer drug paraphernalia recovery and disposal services.

Some Signs That Methamphetamine Has been Used in a Home

While it is possible to produce or cook Methamphetamine in various locations, there's a few warning signals that might suggest a drug house.

Cooking or producing methamphetamine needs minimal experience and training and limited quantities of chemicals and equipment, each of which are quite cheap. Meth laboratories exist in lots of locations, such as flats, houses, rental storage units, mobile homes and cars.

Common Indicators of Meth Production

There's a number of external recognition elements that allude to a meth laboratory. The most common indications of a meth laboratory are:

  • Powerful smells (sour, acrid, solvents, ammonia or pungent)
  • Plastic or foil window coverings
  • Landlords who receive cash payments from tenants
  • More activity in the evenings
  • Discoloured driveways, pavements, soil or structures
  • Large amounts of household rubbish

Equipment Used

As well as the activity within and around a house there are also indications that a house may be used as a meth lab based on the equipment that is in and around it. Here are some of the items that may indicate the presence of a meth lab.

  • Tanks of propane
  • Tanks for scuba diving
  • Extra Stoves
  • Bottles of chemicals
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Glassware
  • Soda dispensers

Rubbish and Waste Items

Certain items in the rubbish bins can also indicate the home has been used as a meth lab. These items include:

  • Yellow or red stained rags
  • Hoses made from rubber
  • Red stained coffee filters
  • Bottles of chemicals
  • Lots of rubbish

Powerful Odours

Have you smelt any of the distinctive, powerful odors below?

  • Rotting eggs
  • Ammonia
  • Solvents
  • Fertilizer
  • Sour, pungent or acrid
  • Vinegar

Personal Symptoms

Methamphetamine production produces many toxic substances. These substances stick to the walls and ceilings of the home as residue. When the occupants of the home breathe in this residue, it can result in a number of symptoms.

Here are some of the symptoms people have experienced by being in a home that has been used as a meth lab.

  • Nausea
  • Migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Dry throat
  • Painful chest
  • Breathing problems

If you suspect that your home, or a home you are considering to purchase, may have been used for methamphetamine production or use, it is important you take action to ensure it is safe for future occupants.

Meth Cleaning FAQs

The cost of methamphetamine property decontamination will depend on the size of your property and the severity of the contamination, and the type of remediation or cleaning needed.

Typically, the remediation process will cost a minimum of $1,000 but may rise to $35,000 - if the house is large or severely contaminated.

Pre-remediation testing is necessary to detect the extent of cleaning. Knowing the level of contamination is vital to determine how extensively each part of the property should be decontaminated and how much protective material should be worn.

Residual vapors may seep into the walls, ceilings, and furniture during meth cooking and use. These can also enter sewage systems and ventilation shafts and linger indefinitely. If left unchecked, they pose grievous health risks to future occupants, such as (but not limited too) breathing problems, skin rashes, dizziness, headaches, insomnia, and even abnormal paranoid or aggressive behaviour.

Aside from the health risks from the persistent presence of meth residue, house damage makes renovations difficult. The water system may also be compromised, as well as the soil in the garden.

In WA, if the house is declared unfit for habitation by the local government, the homeowner will be advised to decontaminate the property before they can continue to live in it.
