Do You Live in a Meth Lab?

Moving into a meth lab can wreak havoc on your health and your finances. Just ask these folks! (They will answer, “Moving into a meth lab can wreak havoc on your health and your finances.”) Avoid this costly fate when buying a new house by checking your property for meth residue before you close. You can buy a kit online ($55), but you can save that $55 and know for free if you know what to look for.
