The testing process

Meth Testing consists of a three step process. You may only need to complete phase 1, if no levels of detection are found in the house. If our swabs detect trace amounts, the next phase will begin.

Phase 1

Instant Testing

Complete inspection of entire property & proceed with residue swab testing using instant tests. If any of the swabs show a positive reading, we will recommend to proceed to phase 2 of testing.

Phase 2

Composite Testing

Complete a thorough swab of individual rooms to NIOSH 9111 Standards, photograph and send to laboratory for sampling. The composite test will determine if there is above safe levels of 0.5 in the property.

Phase 3

Individual Testing

If composite tests show levels above 0.5, phase 3 testing is recommended. Phase 3 will determine exactly what room/area is affected, so that you can proceed with the  decontamination process.
