Recent findings from a governmental CSA report has led to a review of the current standard in relation to methamphetamine smoke contamination to housing. The CSA report concluded that the current standard of 1.5 micrograms/100cm2 which deemed a house ‘uninhabitable’, was significantly ‘too low’ in terms of eliciting short-term health risks to occupants.
Although it may take Standards New Zealand some months to review NZS 8510:2017 fully, some government departments particularly Housing New Zealand have opted in the interim to test only suspected meth producing homes and has therefore initiated the decontamination process to properties where test readings were over 15 micrograms/m2.
We believe that there is a great need for collateral for landlords and property managers in relation to protecting personal or a client’s investment property.
We have produced this brochure highlighting the benefits of wallpaper as an effective solution for quick renovation and protection of internal walls.
Despite what the standard level may eventually end up being, we firmly believe that most landlords would not want any meth smoked in their property and that potential tenants would not knowingly want their families to occupy a home that previously has had any meth activity.
