Purchasing a property is often the largest financial decision you will make. Unfortunately, many purchasers fail to check for the presence of methamphetamine prior to going unconditional. This often leads to high costs with decontamination, often all undertaken without insurance cover.
Being a landlord and owning a rental property often holds many legal requirements. Not only for landlords, but also property managers and tenants. Methamphetamine testing before and after each tenancy is fast becoming best practice for many landlords and property managers, as it provides proof a property is habitable prior to the commence of a tenancy. It also aids in assigning liability against a tenant should contamination be found during or at the end of a tenancy.
Asbestos has been used in over 3000 products, including heat resistant textiles (cloth, padding), cement products (sheets, pipes), special filters for industrial chemicals, thermal insulation products, friction materials (clutch, brakes), gaskets, floor tiles, wall cladding, roofing material, packing material, textured paint and protective paper.
It is a known carcinogenic and is responsible for progressive scarring of lung tissue and mesothelioma – a cancer in the lining of the chest cavity (the pleura) or, less commonly the lining of the abdominal cavity (the peritoneum).
Many sufferers of mesothelioma have worked in situations where they inhaled asbestos particles, or they have been exposed to asbestos dust and fibre in other ways; for example by washing the clothes of a family member who has worked with asbestos, or by renovating using asbestos cement products and the DIY renovator.
It therefore makes a lot of sense requesting an Express Asbestos Inspection if there is any suspicion of asbestos in your home or if you are unsure of the condition of the existing asbestos, for example in the roofing.
Your Pulse Asbestos Report accurately identifies the source of any asbestos present, provides helpful reporting on the precise condition of any existing asbestos and can provide recommendations on removal and replacement according to New Zealand health and safety standards.
To ensure peace of mind a Pulse Asbestos Report is an absolute ‘must-have’ if you think of purchasing a property built pre 1985 as there may be asbestos in the property.
We carry an onsite lead testing kit and can confirm the presence of lead in items such as paint.
We are able to sample the type of mould, moisture test and create a mould removal plan. Often for when mould is suspected to be growing in hidden locations.
Smoke Alarm Management Plan
We can provide a monitored smoke alarm testing and replacement schedule. This combined with healthy homes helps ensure your property meets the Residential Tenancy Act.
