Moving into a meth-contaminated home can cause long-lasting harm to the new owners or renters. Since many “meth homes” go undetected by law enforcement and property-handling middlemen, the problem might not reveal itself until residents start feeling ill. The side effects of living in a former meth lab can also be difficult to identify, varying from headaches and dry mouth to kidney or brain damage.

Jason and Rhonda Holt purchased a house in Tennessee to start their family. They were soon plagued by mysterious illnesses. Their three babies became pale and lethargic, requiring many trips to the emergency room where they were put on respirators and one received steroids. Rhonda developed headaches, and her husband suffered kidney ailments. They endured these illnesses for years until they discovered, five years after moving into their house, that it was the location of a former meth lab. The Holts would need to spend more than $30,000 to rid their home of the toxic chemicals that had saturated the home.
