Meth Testing Hawkes Bay
Scientific Lab-Based Testing for Methamphetamine
One of the most important criteria for meth testing is independence and impartiality. The new standard NZS8510:2017 is very clear that companies can no longer offer both testing and decontamination services. Companies have to choose one or the other as this is a clear conflict of interest. In fact, companies which also offer other services such as property management, drug testing or building inspections are not seen to have the highest levels of impartiality. This is why it is important to choose a meth testing company which specialises in methamphetamine testing only, Like US!
Methamphetamine testing for properties is our core business, but we can also test portacabins, baches as well as cars and other vehicles.
Why Get a Meth Test?
Financial & Legal Reasons
Home Buyers & Investors – if you’re buying an existing property, getting a pre-purchase inspection meth test is essential, otherwise you could end up with a lemon. Councils have the power under the Building Act 2004 and the Health Act 1956 to record meth contamination on the property’s Project Information Memorandum (PIM) or Land Information Memorandum (LIM). Once it’s on your LIM it’s there for good, seriously affecting it’s value. A quick cheap meth test could save you tens of thousands of dollars.
Renters – If you’re renting, ask to have the property tested before you move in. This covers your back and makes sure the house is safe you and family to live in. If your landlord refuses to pay we recommend you still get your own test done. You really don’t know who has lived there before and what they’ve been up to.
Methamphetamine is a synthetic (man-made) drug. It is a powerful, highly addictive stimulant. The 'high' gives users a false sense of invincibility and increased energy.
The short-term effects are hyperactivity, aggressiveness, irritability and extreme weight loss. It can also cause hallucinations, anxiety and paranoia. These are the drug-induced rages you hear about on the news.
Irreversible damage to all major organs, nervous system, cardio-vascular system and respiratory system. Meth-use damages blood vessels and increases heart rate and blood pressure causing cardiovascular disease, brain damage and loss of normal brain function. Eventually leading to heart attacks, strokes and death. Physical effects are severe tooth decay, liver, kidney and lung damage and malnutrition from weight loss.
