Drug Use

Thousands of New Zealand homes and properties have been exposed to drug use. Even a small amount of residual contamination may pose a risk to the health of inhabitants. 

Drawing on 47 years of international drug decontamination experience, the Jani-King Environmental method has been specially developed to be faster, cost-effective, and less-invasive than other methods. Our processes meet Ministry of Health guidelines, and are designed to meet insurer requirements. 

Don't risk the health of your family and yourself by not getting a professional clean. Contact us today for a quote.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY PROPERTY IS CONTAMINATED?

 

An inexpensive composite test is normally the first step taken to confirm any suspicions.

We are always happy to suggest a range of suitable test providers. Any property can become contaminated with drug residue, however evidence would suggest that rental properties are more at risk.

Look for bottles or containers of things like:

Acetone, brake cleaner, drain cleaner, iodine, paint thinner, phosphorous, or ether. 

Other signs to look for:

Drawn curtains, missing light bulbs, changed locks, video surveillance cameras, wall damage, carpet staining, erratic rent payment behaviour, or occupant personality changes.


WHY SHOULD I GET A JANI-KING CLEAN?

Drug contamination can cause a range of health problems, particularly to children, even if the contamination itself occurred long before your purchase of the property. Testing and professional decontamination may be necessary to protect you, your family members, or any other inhabitants.

Some risks of living in a drug-contaminated environment include:

  • Aggressive behaviour and/or paranoia

  • Chronic depression

  • Insomnia, hallucinations

  • Shortness of breath, cough, chest pain

  • Burning, itchy, dry skin and eyes

  • Twitching, convulsions, jerking

  • Headaches, irritability

  • Nausea, tremors, anxiety

  • Dizziness, lack of coordination

  • Permanent psychological disorders

  • Fatal kidney and lung disorders

  • Brain damage

  • Liver damage

  • Coma

  • Blood clots

  • Damage to central nervous system

  • Burns

THE JANI-KING ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESS:

The Jani-King Environmental process begins with removal and disposal of all contaminated drapes and carpets. Next, we use hyper-voluminous cleaning equipment to clean the contaminated areas in your property. Our licensed decontamination formula is used to remove all drug particles from your property.

Our comprehensive process will decontaminate all surfaces, including walls, ceilings, cupboards, doors and frames, windows, appliances, garages, crawl spaces, light fittings, extraction fans and heat pumps.
