PrimeTech Mould and Meth Testing


Climate has always been a factor for mould contamination in our homes but some poor construction methods has created leaky buildings and has add-ed to the increase of moulds in some newer built homes. Mould can affect people by creating different health issues. Some people are sensitive to moulds and can lead to various symptoms . Those with allergies to moulds or with asthma, may have more intense reactions. Exposure to mould or dampness may al-so lead to development of asthma in some individuals. Severe reactions may occur among workers exposed to large amounts of molds in occupational settings, such as people working around compost. Severe reactions may include fever and shortness of breath. People are more likely to get mold infections if they have a weakened immune system, such as people receiving treatment for cancer, and people taking medicines that suppress the immune system.

Non Invasive Moisture Meter Testing

When it comes to determining mould risk, moisture meters are one of the most useful and important tools. Mould spores, which linger on surfaces, can often survive thorough cleaning and drying, and thrive undetected by conventional means. Using moisture meters, however, you can identify pockets of moisture within a surface, which in turn helps you to find where congregations of spores may exist. Knowing where moisture exists in a structure vastly improves your efforts to eliminate mould.


Testing a property for methamphetamine is the best way of checking whether a home is clean and safe to occupy. PrimeTech tests properties for people looking to buy, rent or invest in a property. We also test on behalf of property managers and landlords, but it is usually the people who are buying or moving in who want to ensure that a home is free from meth drug residue or has not been used for drug use or manufacture. PrimeTech can give you a quick yes/no answer with our initial test as well as carrying out more extensive tests if necessary.

PrimeTech will do an instant screen test and issue a report, or if requested send samples for laboratory testing, to see if your house or investment property is contaminated by either manufacturing or the smoking of methamphetamine . All the tests taken at the time of sampling by PrimeTech meet the current NZ ministry of Health’s guidelines NZS8510:2017 New Zealand health standards for methamphetamine in housing.

What level of detection, methamphetamine residue on household surfaces poses a risk to human health?

At present, there is differing scientific opinion over what level of methamphetamine consists as a safe level for people to live in. New Zealand’s Prime Minister’s Chief Science Adviser, Professor Sir Peter Gluckman has produced a report for the Housing Minister which says there is no evidence that third-hand exposure from methamphetamine smoking causes adverse health effects, and says he cannot see the point in testing homes for methamphetamine because the risk to health is so low in most cases.

Professor Sir Peter Gluckman said the new regime would make 200 previously unsafe Housing New Zealand houses available shortly and save HNZ around $30 million a year in testing and remediation. He also said that he couldn’t see the point of testing, full stop, unless the police or the forensics suspect it has been a place of synthesis. Only 5 to 10 percent of Properties used as operating meth labs are found by police. Sir Peter Gluckman said people were more at risk from mould in their home than they were from meth contamination, and in terms of the housing estate, mould is far more dangerous that meth.

But the meth testing industry has slammed the report, calling the office of the PM’s Chief Science Advisor “reckless”. They have been provided with a report that panders to the economic and social policy direction this government is looking to set.

Often meth is made in bedrooms using hotplates and Pyrex dishes without the need for running water or electricity and only takes a few hours to do a batch with minimal equipment.
