What do you do when your blessing turns out to be less of a blessing and more of a difficulty? A loved one has passed away and left you some inheritance.
A house that you have fond memories of being in as a child. Summer visits with cookies and lemonade out on the back porch. Even some bonfires on cooler fall nights. Never did you dream that one day, this place of cherished memories would be yours.
Through the years the house was turned into a rental after the main family moved a bit more remote with more land to allow for horses and hobbies.
With the house empty, you assess the condition of the property and work with a local remodeling company to draw up some plans. There are popcorn ceilings and some old pipe insulation that are a concern for possible asbestos. It’s determined to do some testing prior to starting any renovations.
You set up testing for asbestos, and lead-based paint, and because this home was a rental for well over a decade you also decide to test for methamphetamine.
The results reveal some asbestos, no lead-based paint, and unfortunately positive for meth at high levels, now what?
