Clandestine Labs in Australia!

The number of clandestine laboratories (or meth labs) found across Australia is on the rise. According to the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission Illicit Drug Data Report, of the 432 laboratories detected nationally in 2017-18, almost 70% were located in residential areas, near schools, playgrounds and other residential homes. This number only represents about 10% of the total laboratories in Australia.

The manufacture of illicit drugs is typically done in small laboratories, with relatively inexpensive over-the-counter ingredients including common cold medications. Illicit drug manufacture also involves a number of other easily obtained chemicals that are hazardous, such as acetone, anhydrous ammonia (fertiliser), ether, red phosphorus, and lithium.

The toxic residues left by the illicit drug manufacture do not break down over time, therefore, once a home is contaminated, it will remain so until it is professionally cleaned. Exposure to high levels of illicit drug residue, either inhaled or absorbed through the skin can cause a range of serious health issue.

The only way to tell if your home is contaminated is to have it tested. Opterra can perform a number of tests to determine whether your house or property has been contaminated from illicit drug manufacture or illicit drug us
