If you suspect Methamphetamine
Finding garbage associated with the supplies and chemicals used for cooking meth is one way to detect illegal drug production. There may be boarded windows with a “Beware of Dog” or “Keep Out” sign. If you suspect illegal drugs are being made, often you can tell by their smell. Examples of odors from a meth lab might be a sweet ether smell, acrid chemical fume, ammonia or cat urine odor, or rotten egg sulfurous stink. Thomas Home Inspection provides meth testing that will take no longer than one day to tell you the results.
