Marijuana grow houses can leave damage to a building that is both long-lasting and dangerous. It takes a lot of moisture and humidity for the marijuana plants to flourish. The same moisture is what is needed for mold spores to take hold and flourish.  The mold can be quite extensive, often found growing on the ceilings, walls, and floors. It can invest the ventilation system causing even more health concerns. Grow house cleanup in Carlsbad is needed to make the house livable.

Fire Hazards & Other Dangers

Grow houses may have electrical concerns. These structures are often re-wired to circumvent expensive electric bills. This increases the chance of fire significantly. Safety issues such as this need professional inspection and mitigation. Ductwork can be modified, structural elements can be damaged, and floors can be discolored.
