What our clients say
What our clients say
“We are so pleased that the bamboo has gone – Aiden and his team were lovely and we felt very confident that they knew exactly what they were doing. The survey beforehand was very helpful and informative and it’s reassuring to know that they will be back to follow up.”
“Since engaging Environet UK in 2020 they have been easy to deal with and very professional. They were also very helpful in prepairing the Insurance Backed Guarantee at short notice and in time for the sale of my property. I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.
“Absolutely amazing service. Couldn’t make any changes to improve because they are simply perfect. Emails and phone calls gets a response instantly which is quite impressive. Once again thanks for removing the knotweed.”
We have robust systems in place for Environmental and Health & Safety management. Risk assessments are carried out for every aspect of our business to identify situations where harm could be caused. We have an ethos of continuous improvement to eliminate or reduce the risks with detailed working procedures, on-going training and monitoring.
All our staff have health and safety and emergency first aid training. We are also accredited by CHAS and Constructionline and are members of the Property Care Association (PCA).
As part of our commitment to you, our works come with a 12 month guarantee period as standard, during which we will complete monitoring visits to check for regrowth. Our team will advise whether visible growth will be physically removed or herbicide treated, depending on what we find. For ultimate peace of mind, many of our clients opt to extend their guarantee to 5 years.
The cost of an invasive plant survey will depend on who carries it out, the extent of the area that needs to be surveyed and whether the plant is present or not, either on the property or in the surrounding area. In some cases, this can range between £250 and £500.
