Certificates of Drying

With a £50000 investment we have further set ourselves years ahead of the industry by enhancing our hygiene testing capability to include rapid testing for airbourne and surface fungal biomass, Spectrometer particle counting and specialist air clearance treatments allowing provision of Certificates of Air Quality.
