HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A TEST?

If you suspect that methamphetamine has been used or manufactured at your property, your first step should be to have a state-licensed Clandestine Drug Lab Contractor, such as A&D Specialists, perform  comprehensive sampling throughout the home. The results of this test will reveal the exact contamination levels, if any, that exist at your property.

HOW IS TESTING PERFORMED?

Methanol wipe samples are taken of 100 cm² areas in each room (usually broken into four 25 cm² areas combined into one composite sample) and sent to a state-accredited lab for analysis. Every room is tested separately so that areas of contamination can be pin-pointed, allowing for accurate decontamination efforts and reduced costs. 

The lab returns the results to us within five business days. Those results, along with our recommended decontamination procedures, are then sent to you. Our team members always strictly adhere to WA State’s guidelines for environmental sampling.

WHAT IS THE COST OF TESTING?

The cost of testing is broken down into two fees – our fee, and the lab’s fee. For a transparent description of how those fees are calculated, please see our Process and Pricing page. 

WHAT COMES AFTER THE TEST?

Fortunately, decontaminating the entire property is not always necessary. For example, if methamphetamine residue is identified in only one room, the rest of the property may not need any remediation efforts. Only areas of the property with methamphetamine contamination above the state’s maximum level will require decontamination.

When high contamination levels are identified, full remediation procedures will be required. Thus, accurate testing methods and results are vital precursors to cost-appropriate decontamination services.

WHAT IS POST-DECONTAMINATION TESTING?

Once all decontamination procedures have been completed, your property will be re-tested to prove that the decontamination was successful. We welcome our customers to accompany our state-certified supervisors on the final testing of their property so that they can be certain that all areas have been properly decontaminated. 

We put a 100% Success Guarantee on all of our work. This means that if any area of your property fails the post-test, we will re-clean your property free of charge until full decontamination is achieved.
