Why Choose Us As Your Methamphetamine Testing Company?
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.
PRT carries out methamphetamine testing on property to help to keep you and your family safe from the harmful effects of residual methamphetamine on surfaces and floors.
PRT has recently seen an explosion of Meth related symptoms being reported by tenants around Australia (Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Canbera). The new tenants are moving into property’s untested for Meth, then immediately feeling Nausea, headaches, eye, throat or nose irritation, itchy skin, fatigue, shortness of breath or kids acting extra hyper (meth related symptoms). Than testing the property only to find it is Meth Contaminated.
Under section 185 of the Residential Tenancy and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008, the owner/property manager must provide a safe environment for a tenant. As Meth contamination over 0.5µg/100cm₂ is deemed unsafe, this is a breach of the 2008 Act.
Due to this breach, Real-estate Agencies are paying out thousands to relocate the tenant while decontamination takes place, or complete relocation for the tenant to a new property including moving costs and full bond refund.
Sales agents are selling houses (unknowingly) around Australia that are Meth contaminated and the new owners are again feeling Meth related symptoms (nausea, headaches, eye, throat or nose irritation, itchy skin, fatigue, shortness of breath or kids acting extra hyper), or they lease the property to tenant as an investment property and the tenant are feeling the symptoms. The new owners/tenants are then unable to live in the property until decontamination occurs. This courses major issues between owner and agent, tarnishing the agents name for not fulling knowing any issues relating to the safety of the property they are selling.
PRT’s passion is to combat the Meth crises within Australia and eliminate these issues for home owners, tenants, property managers and sales agents. Choose us as your preferred methamphetamine residue testing company.
