In the State of Colorado, residents are allowed to grow six marijuana plants for every adult person in the home as of January 1st, 2014. This means that buying a house any time after this date could potentially make you the proud new owner of a dwelling that was previously some type of grow operation.
While this may not seem like a big deal, the reality is that purchasing a home in the Greater Denver area that formerly housed growing marijuana plants can cause you some very big problems. That’s why we always suggest that you hire a professional for your marijuana grow clean-up project.
Here are three compelling reasons why:
#1: Higher Risk of Pulmonary Issues If It Isn’t Cleaned Up Correctly
According to research conducted by the Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, almost all of the marijuana grow operations studied contained some type of mold and/or penicillium spores. Thus, the researchers theorized that individuals exposed to these spores may develop pulmonary issues such as asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and allergic rhinitis (a response to allergens taken in via the nose), making proper clean-up critical to avoiding these types of health issues.
#2: Increased Costs Associated with Doing It Yourself
Most people feel that do-it-yourself projects will save them tons of cash and, in some instances, this is true. However, this is often not what happens when cleaning up old marijuana grow-ops yourself because your lack of experience may force you to go through the process a few times before you actually get the place clean enough. This can cost you more in the long run which is why Investopedia recommends that you “choose caution over cost.”
#3: Disposal of All Marijuana Grow Equipment
The third reason to hire a professional for your marijuana grow clean-up is, because it’s now your home; you’re the person responsible for getting rid of all of the old grow operation equipment and supplies. That is, unless you choose 24/7 Flood Response, as we’ll get rid of those unnecessary supplies for you.
Living in a Greater Denver area home which used to contain a marijuana grow operation can be safe for your family, but only if the clean-up is done correctly. Hire a reputable professional so you know that the job is done right! Your family’s health is worth it, wouldn’t you agree?
