Methamphetamine is a potent stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Also known as meth, ice, ‘P’ and crystal, it takes the form of a white, odourless powder and is a highly addictive drug.
The Dangers of Meth in a property
Meth is often manufactured illegally in Australasia, as labs can be easily set up in a residential or commercial property and even motel units, merely requiring access to running water and a power source.
Many of the chemicals used to synthesise meth are highly corrosive and dangerous. The production of one kilogram of meth can create up to seven kilograms of toxic by-product, also known as “meth pollution”. Even the act of smoking meth in a property can result in toxins in the environment.
High-level meth contamination of your home is a real risk in both New Zealand and Australia, and can cause massive health, financial and emotional damage.
Why and when should I get my property tested?
A property meth test should be performed prior to the purchase, sale or change in the occupier of a property. It can provide valuable baseline information for circumstances including due diligence, bank and/or insurance requirements.

After extensive research TR Group selected TDDA as its testing provider. The manner that they have conducted themselves with the selected person for testing has resulted in TDDA being regarded as part of the team rather than an imposition or threat. I would highly recommend TDDA to any potential party seeking an outsourcing solution to complement their Health and Safety programme.
