Customer Testimonial

“I cannot compliment the Verde remediation team enough – led by Seamus (extremely professional, informative and polite) and Marius (professional, friendly and a workaholic). Verde are lucky to have them.  They were more than approachable and helpful and really made it hassle-free (especially with a new born in the house).  I never needed to call Verde as they kept me fully informed from the outset.  Verde exceeded my expectations and I would 100% recommend them.” More Testimonials
