Before you purchase a residential property you want to ensure you have all the information to make an informed decision. A detailed building inspection can provide critical information about the condition of the property, however it cannot detect traces of methamphetamine production and use. While a DIY kit can give you an indication of activity, professional screening is the only way to the gain detailed information that you require.
Methamphetamine testing is becoming essential for rental properties in Australia
It is expected that regular building inspections of rental properties take place. Methamphetamine testing for residue and activity should also be part of this inspection process.
It is essential to detect meth residue early to ensure any extensive damage to the property is prevented and decontamination can take place. Regular Methamphetamine testing also has the added benefit of deterring any tenants from establishing a meth lab in the first place.

Why should I get my property screened for methamphetamine?
What properties should be screened and how often?
Rental: If you own a rental property SC Building & Pest Inspections recommends you have regular methamphetamine screening conducted while the property is tenanted. If you make it clear before the lease is signed that you will be testing it is likely to discourage would-be tenants from considering your property. Regular testing would also discourage existing tenants from using your property to use or make drugs too.
Pre-Purchase: If you’re thinking about purchasing a property we’d recommend you consider a pre-purchase methamphetamine screening too. You may think you’re purchasing in an affluent suburb, but no areas are immune to drug use and manufacture. Whether you’re buying a home to live in or to use as an investment and rental property, a methamphetamine screening makes sense.
Pre-Sale: Before you put your property on the market book a pre-sale methamphetamine screening. Imagine the value you can add to the property if you’re able to show a potential purchaser a clean bill of health. You could even advertise it as being free of methamphetamine residue.
