Meth Testing – P Contamination Check Before you Buy

Buying a new home can be stressful enough…even when everything turns out to be OK. But what about the hidden aspects of home buying? A building inspection from A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections will help you ensure your investment is sound and it will relieve you of any doubts before purchasing your new home.

The prudent purchaser will now get a methamphetamine, “meth” or “P” test done as well as a building inspection. All A Buyer’s Choice House Inspectors are qualified and trained to conduct meth or P inspections and it makes sense to have this done at the same time as your building inspection.

The cost of remediation of meth or P contamination depends upon the level of contamination and can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. In extreme cases where the property has been used to manufacture methamphetamine ie a P lab the very timber structure of the property may be so contaminated that the only option is to demolish the house.

Local councils have the ability to prevent occupation of a property until decontamination has been done. Book your meth or P test at the same time as your home inspection.

Meth or P is a health risk and acute effects can include:

Short term exposure

  • Watery or burning eyes
  • Burning Skin
  • Headaches
  • Coughing and choking feeling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Convulsions
  • Sleep disorders

Long term exposure

  • Tremors
  • Reproductive problems
  • Birth defects
  • Nervous disorders
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver damage
  • Cancer
  • Death
  • And others…
