FAQ

What happens when you schedule a test 

We will reach out to schedule the test

  • When should I schedule a test
    When you have suspicion of a contamination event involving your property. Properties involved in an eviction or stolen vehicles are two of our most common occurrences.
  • My vehicle was stolen. should I have it tested?
    Absolutely, most of the time your insurance company will initiate the testing ,though if not, we highly recommend pushing for the vehicle to get tested.
  • How much is testing on a house?
    It depends. We need to gather more information to determine what type of assessment best fits your need. The information we need before we can give a quote is as follows, - Address of the property. - Number of rooms . - Heating system ( forced air, baseboard heat, PTAC). - Reason for suspicion ( Police report, known activity, signs, paraphernalia). - Does this involve a transaction of the property.
  • Are there regulations for Colorado? Can anyone preform the testing and cleaning?
    There are strict regulations in Colorado. They are enforced by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the regulations are under 6 CCR 1014-3. No one other than a certified Consultant can preform testing of properties and no one other than a certified decontamination contractor can decontaminate properties that are methamphetamine affected.
  • What makes you certified to work in Colorado?
    Mountain View Diagnostic is certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to preform consulting on methamphetamine properties as well as only uses consultants that are certified by the CDPHE. The certification requires a demonstration of knowledge of the state regulations, (6 CCR 1014-3) and a applicable degree in a related STEM field. Mountain View Diagnostic also has experience of preforming hundreds of assessments, which allows us to help you in a wide array of situations.
  • What should I look for when hiring a consultant and decontamination contractor?
    First, make sure they are certified to do the work that you need. - If you need a property to be tested: - Make certain that the company has been certified (By the CDPHE) as well as the consultant they are planning to send out to conduct the testing is certified. These certifications last for 2 years, so make sure that they are not expired. Prior to any work preformed, ask them to provide their certifications. -If you need a property to be decontaminated: - Make certain that the company has been certified (By the CDPHE) as well as ALL of the workers they are planning to send out to decontaminate are certified. Additionally one of the workers will need to be certified as a decontamination supervisor. These certifications last for 2 years, so make sure that they are not expired. Prior to any work preformed, ask them to provide their certifications. Making sure that they are certified will get you someone who is qualified to do the work properly, safely and efficiently.
  • If you test, can you also decontaminate?
    No. The regulations state that the Consultant and Decontamination Contractor must be independent to avoid the possibility of a conflict of interest. This works in your favor so that there isn't anything shady happening and that no biases affect the results or work you pay for.
  • What is your service area?
    We primarily service all of Colorado. We are also able to work in other states as needed.
