Meth Test House and Asbestos Sampling – Pricing
Field Composite Screening Test
The recommended test for reliability and price, gives a level of contamination if any.
Also known as a baseline test.
Every room + garage sampled in average size house. Sampling as per NZ Standards. One sample kit with five cotton swabs is used and the lab result shows the cumulative level of all locations in the house which were sampled – does not show levels for individual areas/rooms.
Also suits single rooms, cars, hotel rooms, etc.
$225 inc gst total price (travel may apply if out of area).
Results are confidential for your eyes only. Urgent Lab fee $40 +gst sample.
Total price includes travel in area, inside and outside visual inspection, courier, lab analysis and PDF report if level is above zero.
Usually 2 days to get the results back from the lab.
Travel cost may apply if North of Redvale, West of Swanson, East of Howick or South of Papakura.
Discounts available on other services, if done on same visit
eg: If getting a meth test – then any other service such as getting an asbestos sample is discounted, because no travel cost can apply.
Detailed or Distinct Area Sampling – Distinct or Individual Result
Pre or Post-decontamination sampling as per NZ Standards. Also known as discreet, individual or room-by-room sampling. Insurance companies and cleaning companies require detailed test results to know which rooms to clean.
One sample kit with one cotton swab in it is used for each room. Rooms are defined by NZ Standards – basically any room with a door on it, and each open plan area over 10m2 needs their own sample kit. Most average size houses are about 10 – 15 rooms.
Get the detailed individual room results straight away from the lab = $110 + GST per sample (each kit). Each room or area sampled is lab analysed giving a level for that room / area.
Detailed or Distinct Area Sampling – Lab Composite Result
Exactly the same sampling process as above. Get an average, and a theoretical maximum, of all the individual rooms.
Also known as room-by-room or distinct results.
Cost is $320 +gst for up to 10 sample kits.
If needed, the individual room levels can then be extracted at the lab for a further cost
- further extraction is $78+gst per sample kit. You can choose which kits to get the detailed information for.
- – the total cost will be the same as $110+gst per room. Same as getting detailed room results straight away.
The difference is, if detailed room levels aren’t needed, quite a bit of money is saved.
