Research, peer reviewed scientific testing and use of superior materials guarantee effective results

ECS make every effort to operate our business in an environmentally responsible manner, complying with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.

The chemicals and products we use are non-hazardous, non-corrosive, completely bio-degradable, environmentally-friendly and safe for people, pets and structures.

We are committed to providing a safe work environment for all those involved in the remediation process and implement policies to adhere to Occupational Health and Safety statutory requirements.

Detailed site inspections will determine the extent of work required and identify hazards on site to provide clients with detailed information on what will be required to remediate their property. On some occasions, it may be more efficient and economical to remove and replace difficult to clean materials such as wallpaper, polyurethane, varnish and some low-cost doors. We will discuss these options with you after an initial site inspection.

Extreme cleaning solutions


STANDARDS NEW ZEALAND undertook a study of testing and decontamination of methamphetamine-contaminated properties and have recently released the new NZ Standard NZS 8510:2017 of 1.5µg/100cm². ECS has unreservedly adopted the new standards and guidelines, and have included them in our decontamination practices.

ECS is an authorised Master Technician for Crystal Clean.

Crystal Clean has been scientifically proven here in New Zealand to actually destroy (kill) the meth molecule leaving no harmful materials behind on any surface. Because of this, we are often able to provide the best value to our clients, not only by providing the lowest cost to decontaminate, but also from the fact we minimise other reinstatement costs by not stripping out the property. And most importantly, because Crystal Clean destroys the meth molecule there is no methamphetamine residue washed into waste water or sewage systems.
