Methamphetamine Decontamination

Dealing with the aftermath of methamphetamine manufacture or use in contaminated properties for owners, property managers and insurers requires the input and advice of decontamination contractors with the experience to develop a remediation plan that limits cost, property downtime and that guarantees the return of the property to a safe habitable state.

NZRS can use your laboratory report to interpret contamination levels and formulate a remediation plan based on our experience in decontaminating homes and commercial premises throughout NZ. Remediation plans range from cleaning, removing of soft furnishings, electrical fittings to stripping out of building materials from entire areas while taking into account reinstatement costs.

Our trained and experienced NZRS decontamination teams deal with all levels of contamination. We use a specialist range of decontamination products and processes that ensures we don’t introduce further hazards ortoxins into your home.

What is asbestos and what does it look like?

Asbestos is the generic name for a number of mineral fibres found in rock formations. Because of its strength, durability and fire resistance, asbestos was used in the past in construction and other industries, and was added to a variety of products.

Because asbestos was often mixed with other substances, it is very difficult to visually identify. The only way to know for certain if asbestos is present is to submit it for testing to a properly accredited asbestos laboratory. 

What are the risks surrounding asbestos?

Health studies indicate that breathing high levels of asbestos fibres can lead to an increased risk of certain types of lung cancers.  However, if asbestos fibres are properly enclosed within a product, there are no significant health risks. The potential danger occurs when asbestos fibres are disturbed, released into the air and then inhaled.

NZRS Mould Decontamination

Mould contamination and growth in buildings in New Zealand can be caused and supported by water leaks, floods, poor ventilation, lack of insulation and substandard building techniques.  Whether it’s caused by a leaky building, a humid environment, sewer back-flows, plumbing failures or flooding, the result can be a debilitating health hazard.

The health impacts in NZ are well documented including respiratory infections, allergic responses, headaches, fatigue and sore throats. These health impacts can result in buildings becoming uninhabitable and requiring expensive remediation if not dealt with in a timely manner.

The presence of mould is not always obvious. Mould may exist behind wall linings and in roof spaces for some time causing residents continued respiratory discomfort and only become evident when the spores penetrate surfaces and discolouration and growth are noticed.

Mould is often a problem when a household has been flooded and can create an environment where damage can occur if the property isn’t dryed properly and may result in extensive renovation, which can be a costly process.

We work to the IICRC S520 Standard & Reference Guide for Professional Mould Remediation.

 

 

NZRS Biohazard Decontamination

We provide a specialised decontamination service for situations that your normal cleaning companies simply aren’t equipped to handle. This involves removing blood, bodily fluids and infectious materials that may represent a serious health hazard. Our specialist technicians are on call 24 hours for the sensitive handling of these hazardous cleanup services.

Biohazard covers a host of risks to human health from sewage backflow, to blood on the carpet, traumatic scenes following accidents, suicides  or homicides. The associated health hazards can lead to sickness, business interruption and even legal liabilities. Naturally it’s distressing for the people involved to deal with and NZRS technicians are trained to deal with these situations in a safe, empathetic and sensitive way.

NZRS have a professional team on 24 hour call who can respond swiftly to assess, plan and conduct a cleanup removing the stress and exposure to trauma for the people on the ground. If you are dealing with hazardous or infectious contamination, a workplace accident, homicide or biohazard abatement call NZRS on our 24 hour response line and we will dispatch one of our specialist technicians to decontaminate, disinfect and restore the affected area.

Our technicians are trained in biohazard abatement, decontamination, odour control and compliant disposal of potentially infectious materials. The technician uses full body protection and the site is managed to avoid exposure to risk while still maintaining access.
