Which test would I have done first?

If there is no obvious drug lab activity, start with an on the spot Indicative Test. If there is obvious signs of a drug lab, go straight to Analytical Testing.

What happens if my laboratory samples come back with higher than acceptable levels?

After the house has been aired out for two days, generally a minimum of two to fourteen working days, however depending upon the size of the property and level of contamination this could be longer.
