Marijuana Grow-Op Air Testing

Air testing of Former marijuana grow operations is the process of analysing the air for mold. It involves taking mold air samples indoors and comparing them to outdoor mold samples to see if there is a mold source inside the building potentially causing a health risk.

  • Poisonous gas and chemicals
  • Biological contaminants
  • Poor indoor air quality
  • Formation of damaging mold and fungus
  • Mold and mildew from intense condensation
  • Greater chance of fires occurring

The problem is almost impossible to detect, as the lay person cannot tell a drug house by appearances alone. There are even cases of speculators purchasing a former 'drug house' at a significant discount, re-selling it at a premium, and not disclosing its former use to the new owner.

For those former Grow operations that were discovered by authorities, there will be a public record. If the Grow Op was never discovered, a record will not exist. Checking with the municipality will let you know if it was ever used as an illegal drug facility. In many cases, this is required before Banks and Insurance Companies will lend money or insure the home.

Indoor Environmental Assessments & Testing

Indoor environmental assessments and testing helps detect former Grow Ops.

Before buying your home, or if you suspect it has been used as a 'drug house', consider hiring a professional indoor environmental assessment & testing company to do a mold, yeast, bacteria - and other toxic substances - inspection. These contaminates are often associated with grow ops and meth labs and are health risks.

As Indoor Environmental Assessment & Testing Specialists, you should know that it is 'home buyer beware', and that testing for former Marijuana Grow-Op activity has never been more important.
