Default Check ferm chamber for leaks?

So I'm pretty much done with building my ferm chamber, but I have no idea how to check for leaks.

I'm thinking about putting some newspapers in a can, let it smolder. And look for smoke from the outside. But my only concern there is odor after I'm done.

These would be a little safer.

No fire risk. Also more costly.
