How to determine if your home was a drug house

You have finally bought yourself a new home. The place is absolutely perfect, you couldn’t ask for anything better. The location, neighbours, and the pool in the backyard already make it feel like home. Making this purchase might be one of the best decisions you have ever made for you and your family.

However, before claiming the ownership of the house, won’t you be interested in knowing if your home was previously used as a meth lab? You might think it’s highly unlikely when the house looks all neat and pretty, but CNN reports say otherwise.

Living in a meth house can cause serious health problems to you and your family. Meth molecules can stick to the surface of walls and can even go into the insulation system. This type of exposure is highly dangerous to toddlers who crawl about places.

It’s best to do a little bit of research, before moving into your new home. Below are ways to find out if your home was previously a drug house.

Inquire with people: Speak to your neighbours and inquire about the history of the house and people previously living there. Find out if they noticed any odd or suspicious behaviour/activity of the previous residents. This can help you gain a better insight into the actual state of the house.

Visit the police station: After speaking to a couple of neighbours, don’t stop there. Drop by the local police station and check if any illegal activity in that house had been reported.

Look out for strange odours: It is normal for an old house to be a bit smelly. But if you smell odours of paint thinner, ether, acetone, these could be a telltale sign of a meth lab. Speak to your realtor and find out more about the house, if you notice such smells.
