Please get in touch by phone or email.

Where do you provide surveys?

Anywhere in the UK and Europe.

How long do surveys take?

They usually take about two hours.  This will depend on how large your property is and how complicated the problems are. The quotation normally includes on-site work of up to 2.5 hours.

A cheaper alternative is to order a 1 hour telephone consultancy.

Are there additional costs?

Yes, we charge for our travel expenses.  This will either be the public transport at cost or 55 pence per mile return from BN6 9RE.

What sort of wallpaper paste should I use?

Some wallpaper pastes have anti-fungals in them. The white pva ones are the best for me rather than the old fashioned polycell pastes. Just make sure you don’t react to them before you use them.

How should I put up the wallpaper?

Please follow the instructions supplied with the wallpaper. It very similar to putting up normal wallpaper.

How do I use the filters?

You should plug them into a wall socket, rather than on an extension cable. The socket should be in good condition.   The socket needs to be switched on for the filter to work.

We describe our products as accurately as we can. Any error or omission in any information on the site or document issued by us shall be corrected provided that the correction does not materially affect the Contract of Sale. We or our suppliers may, from time to time and without notice, change the Goods in order to comply with any applicable statutory requirements provided that such changes do not materially affect the nature or the Price of the Goods.

Guarantee and Returns

We want you to be delighted with your purchase but understand that sometimes you may need to return a product. You can order with complete confidence as we guarantee to refund or exchange any product that you are not completely happy with. All we ask is that you return the product to us in its original unused condition, in its original undamaged packaging.  It is your responsibility to take “reasonable care” of the goods.  Please note that goods that are not available for resale due to hygiene reasons (i.e. sheets or clothing) or custom made to order are non-returnable (except for faulty workmanship).

Your goods are guarenteed for a 1 year period from the date of delivery against faulty manufacture.

Returns Within 14 Days

Within 14 days of receipt of your order you have the right to notify us in writing and cancel and return the whole order in its original undamaged packaging (goods that cannot be resold due to hygiene reasons, and those that are made up to order are non-returnable unless faulty). We will refund the full purchase price and standard delivery postage within 14 days of us receiving your item back (except if you are returning only part of an order, in which case we will refund the purchase price of the item but not the postage).

We reserve the right to charge a restocking charge and to charge for any goods not returned in saleable condition or exceeding the 14 day period. Please notify us before returning goods.  It is your responsibility to cover the cost of returning the goods and to insure them for their value in case they should go astray or be damaged in transit. This does not affect your statutory rights.
