Methamphetamine Testing

Methamphetamine testing is unfortunately something that is growing in importance when it comes to protecting your property.

One of the key characteristics of meth labs is that they produce a distinct smell from the anhydrous ammonia used to produce the product. Anhydrous ammonia has what is commonly described as a “sharp” odour that can produce a burning sensation in the throat or eyes even at low levels of exposure. Another common attribute of properties with meth labs is occupants that store high-volumes of over-the-counter drugs like ephedrine. These medicines can be easy to acquire in small quantities and can be purchased at most department or drug stores.

If you believe a property has been used to produce methamphetamine, we are able to conduct on-site testing that is able to determine whether or not the illegal drug has been produced in residential, commercial, or industrial locations. The tests are sent to the Laboratory and the results are available in 2–3 working days.

These tests can provide home owners and property owners alike with peace of mind that their investment has not been compromised and current residents are safe.

FAQs

WHEN DO I GET A HOME INSPECTION?

A home inspector is typically contacted right after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed. However, before you sign, be sure that there is an inspection clause in the purchase contract specifying that your purchase obligation is contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated with respect to the findings of the inspection.

CAN A HOUSE “FAIL” AN INSPECTION?

No. A professional home inspection is simply an examination of your home or prospective home. A home inspector, does not pass or fail a house, but simply describes its condition and indicates which items will be in need of repair or replacement immediately or near future.
