Who We Are

nlr team

NLR Sewage Cleanup is a division of NLR Restoration, the premier cleaning and restoration company in Queensland, and is known for our attention to detail, ability to handle complex problems, and 24/7 emergency response services.

Where we are

We’re a family company headquartered in Murarrie, Brisbane, but we have technicians available all across South-East Queensland, and (since 2019!) we’re in Sydney!

Why We Exist:

NLR Restoration came into existence in 2002 when father-son duo Warren and Lex Moir saw a market gap for a high-quality restoration service with attention to detail operating in Queensland.

Starting with just one van, the business has now grown to roughly 40 employees and with operating out of 2 states – Queensland and NSW.

  • Managing Jobs for the Future:

    We’re able to manage all aspects of the job – from initial extraction, all the way through to post-cleaning verification. With our very own microbiology team and our very own laboratory, you can be sure that NLR Sewage Cleanup is able to handle your issue, no matter the type or size.

  • Managing Complex Buildings:

    It can be devastating to find your home or rental property has been used as a meth lab or been contaminated due to tenants using the substance in the property. We can firstly provide a report and testing to confirm the extent of the damage. Then we can provide a quote for the cleanup. Be assured that we use the most cost-effective clean up latest technology processes to remove the contamination.
