Why would I need Bug Sweeping Services?
I think somebody may have planted a bug in my house.
If someone seems to know things that you’ve only discussed in the privacy of your own home, you might be feeling invaded, violated or even questioning your own judgement. Because we are experts in surveillance technology, we are able to detect bugs planted by others easily.
We are here to listen to your concerns and narrow down where a bug might be hidden. Our team can visit your property and conduct a sweep, checking key areas to uncover anything concealed.
A bug sweep can detect and remove hidden bugging devices, or it can provide reassurance that your home is still private. Should we find anything, we are equipped to help you trace the origins of the bug and gather evidence of the violation, allowing you to confront the eavesdropper.
Our investigators are always discreet and can appear as general maintenance to avoid revealing our actions. We always search thoroughly and take care not to cause damage to your property and possessions.
I think my office has been compromised.
In a workplace scenario, listening devices can be used to collect intelligence that is valuable to competitors and rivals. If your classified conversations are being leaked, it is possible that there is a hidden listening device somewhere in the office. It may be useful to avoid areas where leaked information has previously been discussed, and confine all confidential conversations to a single room until our team can conduct a sweep.
Our discreet investigators will use their expertise to narrow down possible locations and conduct a thorough sweep to find any and all listening devices. We can remove these devices and access them to remove any data collected, and we are equipped to assist with finding the perpetrator.
Is somebody tracking my vehicle?
While GPS vehicle trackers are easy to install, it is difficult to find. If someone seems to have undue knowledge of your movements, even when you have not been followed, it may be that your car has been fitted with a tracker. Our team uses GPS vehicle trackers in investigations, and as such we have expert knowledge and experience with which we can uncover any devices attached to your vehicle. By finding and removing these bugs, you can restore your privacy and confidence when driving.

Bug Sweeping FAQ
The only way to know you have been bugged without doubt is to find the bug or to find information that has been leaked.
Bugs can be near impossible to detect without professional help but you can narrow down where the leak may be by using a process of elimination and selectively disclosing certain information.
Electronic listening or monitoring devices (bugs) can never be deployed in places such as toilets or changing rooms however it is legal to use them if there is a clear and justifiable reason such as investigating serious theft. Even under these circumstances the use of bugs should be administered by a professional and for no longer than absolutely necessary.
That is entirely your decision, if you need us to be discreet with our bug sweep then we can either arrange the visit using a pretext such as an electrical survey (or suitable trade) or we can arrange the sweep at a time when the business/property will be vacant.
We encourage you to conduct sweeps at times when there is little or no activity at the premises so after hours and weekends can be ideal times for our team to visit.
Our team has the capability to detect and disarm a range of different bugging devices, listening devices are predominantly categorised into phone/wire taps, devices that store information locally and devices that transmit information via GSM/RF/WiFi.
Our experience building, deploying and detecting various types of device means we are confident any type of device can be found.
