Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made up of many small fibres. Unfortunately for all of us, it was commonly used in building products right up until  the year 2000. As we now know, asbestos can be a killer and it is vital that you manage this risk appropriately. As a specialist property testing company, our primary focus is in the residential sector and working with landlords and property management companies.

If you are a landlord, you will be aware that on the 4th April 2018, new asbestos regulations came into effect. This means that if you own a rental property you now have a legal obligation to take all practicable steps to ensure that both your tenants and any contractors working on the property are protected from the risks associated with asbestos containing material. ATS has created a revolutionary and cost effective way for landlords to achieve this.

Healthy Homes Standards Assessment

The Healthy Homes Standards are here and Active Testing Solutions has responded to our clients’ requests and have introduced an assessment programme. We are currently working with a number of Property Management Companies as well as private landlords to ensure that their properties are meeting the Healthy Homes Standards requirements. The Healthy Homes Standards are a set of five criteria that every rental property in New Zealand must meet.

There are currently no requirements as to who can conduct a Healthy Homes Standards Assessment and indeed Landlords to have the option of completing these assessments themselves. We would however caution Landlords that are keen to conduct their own assessments to ensure that they have an extensive understanding of the legislation. There are a number of technical criteria that need to be met and while it is possible to conduct the assessment yourself, the prudent option is to pass on the requirement (and the liability) to a third party.

The health risks of meth are significant. But it is not just the users of ‘P’ that face risks. If you are in a building that has been exposed to meth, then you are at risk.

Meth Free Home

First Home Buyers

The family home is often the largest purchase that we will ever make. It’s something that we spend years saving for and often months of scouring open homes to find. But when we do finally find that perfect home, it’s amazing and it feels like we would be willing to do just about anything to get it!

We know that it’s hard, but right now, when emotions are running high, you must hit the pause button and take a few simple steps to protect yourself.  This is an incredibly exciting time and ensuring that you are protected against methamphetamine contamination and making sure that you are aware of any asbestos on site (and the implications of this), will give you peace of mind and add to the excitement.

Methamphetamine is pretty hot topic right now. You will probably have heard the horror stories of people purchasing a property and moving into their amazing new home only to find out down the track that the property is contaminated and requires remediation. In this instance, insurance will likely not pay for the remediation and these unlucky purchasers are left tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket. A simply, fully compliant meth test would have highlighted the issue and saved them the heartache.

We understand that meth is a controversial topic and you will likely have an opinion one way or the other as to the necessity of meth testing. Whether you decide to have the property tested or not is completely up to you, however we would encourage you to think really carefully about not spending a small amount now to save yourself tens of thousands of dollars down the track. The reality is that meth does cause health issues and properties that are holding unsafe contamination levels must be decontaminated if the occupants are to avoid getting sick. Please, get a test and protect yourself, your family and your investment.

Asbestos testing was historically a really expensive very invasive test that has never really been part of the home buying process. We aim to change that. Asbestos was used to create building materials right up until 1990 and those building materials were used to build houses right up until the year 2000. Most people don’t realise just how common the use of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) really is! If you are looking at a house that was built prior to 1990, it will likely contain asbestos. If you are looking at home built between 1990 and 2000 there is still an incredibly high chance that you will find some ACM on site.

ATS has developed a Non-Invasive Visual Inspection which will tell you where the asbestos in the property is and whether you need to take action to remove it. In most cases, all that is needed is to be made aware of where the ACM is, so that you can keep an eye on it and ensure that it does not become damaged, which is when the asbestos fibres which can be deadly are released into the property.
