Anyone who has an interest in ensuring their environment or assets are free of Methamphetamine contamination. Landlords, tenants, vendors and prospective buyers of property should all consider undertaking testing on properties.
The cost associated with undertaking a test is nothing compared to the costs of remediation, or potential costs of being held accountable for a contaminated property let alone the health effects associated with exposure – it makes sense to test first.
In our experience, a clear commitment around screening, especially proactively – can be a strong deterrent to those considering using these facilities for illegal activities.
