Since we aren’t seeing or hearing about meth labs as much in the news as in previous years, don’t think they’ve gone away! If anything, usage has increased creating more contaminated dwellings.
Heroin attention has replaced meth lab busts and explosions in the news and on the streets. Statistically, lab seizures have dropped drastically. Why manufacture when one can get a better quality of meth and pay lower prices from product delivered via the California-to-Midwest pipeline?
This trend should make landlords and realtors more cautious than ever! Since those who are contaminating the dwellings are not being apprehended as they were in previous years, contamination is increasing, causing unsuspecting renters or buyers to be living in hazardous environments. Now, more than ever, dwellings need to be tested prior to changing occupants.
