Being informed by the police that a property has been used to manufacture or grow illicit drugs comes as a horrible shock. Being left with the daunting and confusing responsibility of returning the property to health and safety standards is only made more difficult by the complex requirements in the process.
While there is often substantial debris from a clandestine laboratory operation, much of the damage and danger is invisible to the layman. Dangerous residues and compounds are deposited on ceilings and walls, and embedded in furnishings. Experience and careful sampling are an essential first step to restoring your property for safe habitation.
