Squatted / Abandoned properties

Previous tenants of homes whether rented or otherwise can leave behind hazardous items, especially when they leave in a hurry.

Our experienced team can not only recover sharps and drug paraphernalia but can also assist with the removal and treatment of biological hazards such as body fluids or excrement or odours that may be present or the remaining items left by the previous tenant.

Often it is necessary to remove rubbish or trim lawns to conduct a thorough sweep and we can assist with this to locate and remove all possible hazards.

We also offer all levels of Methamphetamine Residue testing, so we can identify if the property is contaminated and include this in our scope.
