Hard Surface Oil Spill Cleanup
Hard surface oil spill cleanups on impermeable surfaces like concrete and tarmac need several considerations. Firstly, you need to ensure that the area is made safe. Secondly, you need to ensure that the cleanup process used does not risk allowing remnants of the oil to enter drainage systems or waterways.
If allowed to enter the drainage systems, oil can contaminate groundwater – what we use for drinking water in the UK. Should this happen, it can be extremely expensive and difficult to put right. In addition it can even affect the water treatment plants.
Not only are hard surface oil spills on tarmac and concrete a major environmental risk, but they also present slip and fire hazards if left untreated. While you can use sand to initially contain the spill, more work needs to be done. If left without proper cleaning and decontamination, unsightly stains will form and oil will begin to attack concrete and corrode tarmac.
With highly skilled and experienced technicians, we are able to cleanup oil spills of any size. This is done by utilising the environmentally friendly Lubetech technology. With a rapid response service, Ideal Response can be onsite within 2 hours of receiving your call. Once there we will help contain the hard surface oil spill before commencing the oil spill cleaning and decontamination process.
Oil spills can leave behind a foul, overpowering odour which can linger for some time, often making premises uninhabitable. If you are struggling with this after the cleanup process has been completed, we also offer odour neutralisation which can effectively eradicate lingering foul smells.
