By: ABM Environmental and The Globe and Mail
Grow operations and meth labs are more common than you think in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. Even if a home has not been declared a former marijuana grow operation or meth lab doesn’t mean it was not at some point in the past.
It’s estimated that 1 out of every 4 homes and buildings have been used as a grow op or meth lab location. In the Lower Mainland alone, it’s estimated that up to 20,000 homes have been used as a former illegal activities facility. When a home or building has been used as a grow op location or meth lab, toxic black mold can be found in between walls, underneath flooring and even in attics. Many people purchase a property not even knowing that the property was used as drug house in the past and that it still contains toxic mold or other contaminants.
For your own health and safety and the health and safety of your tenants, test your property. Landlords are often the victims of grow ops and meth labs and are required to repair all damages at their own expense and obtain the required testing to pass inspections from the city/municipality before a re-occupancy permit will be granted.
