Sellers and /or buyers: Have you ever ran into this situation and asked..... My home tested positive for meth.... now what? First of all this might be more common than most people think. Homes with traces of meth due to someone smoking meth in the home are not uncommon which is why your agent will suggest that you get a meth test during your inspection period/due diligence time frame. Never assume a home doesn't have it, there's no way to know with out testing.
There are do -it-yourself kits, but my suggestion is to always contact an expert on this matter. Do not rely on your neighbor, family or friends for advice or a kit from a hardware store. My first suggestion is to contact and talk to your home inspector or the inspector that can test your home. If the test comes back positive find out what the home tested for exactly so you know what you are dealing with. With this information you will now have a better idea of what path you need to take for remediation.
Another great place to contact is the health department. Their websites are packed with valuable information. You can always call and talk to them too. http://slcohealth.org/programs/sanitationsafety/chemcontamprop.html
again depending on your test and where you live different steps will have to be taken when it comes to remediation/ cleanup

Luckily, the number of homes with LABS in them has declined drastically from previous years. Again, please consult a specialist for advice. The sites listed above are for general knowledge and information.
Happy House Hunting!
