- How bad is it? A Detailed Site Investigation will tell you.
This next stage of testing tells us how high the contamination is throughout the entire property. The first test has provided us with levels in a specific room, but not the levels of contaminants in all the different surfaces in a property.
The NZS 8510:2017 Standards give a numerical value that indicate what are considered hazardous levels in a property. We conduct this test in conjunction with the meth-testing and decontamination standard NZS 8510:2017. We use IANZ accredited labs to test the samples.
When you get this test done you will receive a comprehensive Pre-Decontamination Report stating what the levels are in each room and surface, along with recommendations on the remediation of the property. This report can then be passed on to the clean up and decontamination companies who will provide a quote for the process, ensuring that a thorough scope of works is developed and approved by all parties involved.
Following the clean up, the property will require further Lab Based Samples to be taken (A Post Decontamination Report) – this ensures the property is now free of the meth contamination and levels are below the NZS 8510:2017 Standard.
Costs vary based on the number of rooms needing to be tested, we are happy to discuss and quote on a case by case basis.
- Meth Testing and Decontamination Standard NZS 8510:2017
The NZS 8510:2017 standard is aimed at addressing a need for guidance on methodologies, procedures, and other supporting material that will ensure a consistent and effective approach to managing the testing and remediation of affected properties and treatment of their contents.
