A Very Real Problem

Australia is facing an ice epidemic and according to the United Nation’s 2014 World Drug Report, our nation currently ranks third in having the highest rates of ice use in the world.

Since 2014 the number of ice (also known as ‘meth’ – an abbreviation for ‘methamphetamine’ and ‘clan’ – an abbreviation for ‘clandestine’)
users continue to rise along with the number of meth labs. Almost half of these meth labs are being uncovered in Queensland at a rate of approximately one meth lab per day.

To further magnify the scale of the problem, The Environmental Health Standing Committee (enHealth) have proposed an estimated 9 out of 10 meth labs are going undetected. Between 2010 and 2015, 3,680 clan labs were detected in Australia so based on enHealth’s estimation, approximately 33,120 clan labs have gone undetected! Most of these being in residential homes.

Whilst the media focuses on the number of lab busts and meth related crimes, everyday Australians are being faced with the subsequent problem of meth contaminated properties and its long term financial and health affects.

The Australian Government, according to a quote published in its Clandestine Drug Laboratory Remediation Guidelines, 2011, warns that:
“the residual contamination arising from illicit drug manufacture carried out in clandestine drug laboratories presents a serious risk of harm to human and environmental health.”
And deem:
“surfaces contaminated with meth at a level greater than 0.5μg/100cm² (0.5 micrograms per 100cm²) is considered unacceptable.”
An enHealth Position Statement on Clandestine Drug Laboratories and Public Health Risks, 2013, stated that:
“it is likely that many hundreds of children (about 10% toddlers) have/are being exposed to clan lab contamination and this is likely to be in terms of thousands if undetected clan labs are included (assuming a 1:10 ratio).”
A number of publications including The Residential Tenancies Act 1995 recognise that:
“A landlord must provide the residential premises in a reasonable state of cleanliness and fit for habitation by the tenant.”
And under the new 2015 Health and Safety at Work Act:
“Landlords — as PCBUs (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking) have a duty of investigating further and mitigating a known potential/or suspected risk.”

Landlords have a responsibility to ensure their property is safe for future occupants and Property Managers have a duty of care to advise their clients about the risks of methamphetamine contamination. A Meth Residue Test should be conducted in between each new tenancy agreement.

Check for meth contamination before putting your family’s health at risk.
Ask your agent to conduct a Meth Residue Test if you suspect the property may be contaminated.
Be smart, be safe, be proactive and be sure. Do not risk buying, selling, renting or leasing a property without first checking for meth contamination.

Is your home affected by odourless & invisible harmful Meth residues?


Smoking meth inside a property even once can contaminate your home and regular smoking of the drug can return contamination readings as high as those produced from a meth lab.

Once a property is contaminated, only specialised decontamination methods can can draw out, neutralise and clean away meth residues effectively and bring the property back to a habitable level. ASR Search Engine
