With meth labs springing up across the country, it pays to make sure that you're not buying an ex meth lab. We offer a meth detection service which can detect the residue from a cook. Ex meth labs often have to go through extensive clean ups before they are fit for living in again. Avoid these high costs by not putting yourself in such a situation in the first place.
75% of meth labs in NZ are based out of rental homes. Residue from the cooking process is hazardous to the health of you and your family.
Pests such as Termites, Rats and Roaches can diminish the value of a property. Avail of our pest detection services before you buy your next property to make sure you're not overpaying for an infested building. We have both: invasive as well as non-invasive techniques to help detect pests within your building structure.
Termites can affect the structural integrity of your home and cockroaches and rats can be bad for your family's health. Avoid an infestation like the plague with our pest detection services.
In recent years, many leaky home and shoddy construction scandals have come to light. Don't fall victim to these and make sure the property you are about to purchase is well built and structurally sound. We have many detection methods at our disposal depending on the scope of the job.
