Our Oil Spill Cleanup Process

Ideal Response utilises a state-of-the-art bioremediation approach to dealing with oil spills. In a city like London, with over nine million inhabitants and millions of vehicles passing though each day, a quick and safe oil spill cleaning process is essential. Bioremediation is the process of neutralising the harmful pollutants in the oil, using naturally occurring microorganisms. This approach guarantees that the oil, once treated, no longer poses a risk to the environment or local eco-system.

Our process can be broken down into five distinct steps:

  1. Assessment
  2. Containment
  3. Bioremediation
  4. Jet Washing/ Dilution
  5. Wet Vacuuming/ Removal of Contaminants

When we first arrive on the site of the oil spill, our focus is to contain the spill. Preventing the situation from getting worse. Because of the countless scenarios in which an oil spill can occur in London, containing the spill is vital in limiting the danger and reducing the potential cleanup time. We complete this initial containment phase by deploying oil spill pads and booms. London streets are full of drains and there is no shortage of open water sources. Preventing the oil from reaching these areas is an important step in our London oil spill cleaning process.

When the bioremediation process is complete, we dilute the now soluble solution with pressure washers. Then remove all traces of it using wet vacs and absorbent materials. The area is then fully decontaminated to guarantee it is safe and no longer poses a risk to health & safety.

The Importance of Rapid Oil Spill Response

Not only do oil spills pose a risk to the environment but they can also cause a massive amount of disruption. If an oil spill occurs on a busy road in central London, the repercussion of an unforeseen event like this could lead to major disruption throughout the city. Alternatively, an oil spill on a commercial or industrial worksite can result in closure and disruption to work. Not only can this affect eh timeframe of business activities, but that delay will also have financial repercussions.

Naturally, the longer an oil spill goes untreated, the greater the disruption and extent of the damage will be. Because most oil spills are vehicle related, it is common for the spills to take place in areas that have a lot of traffic. This is one of the ways in which oil spills spread and, cars will drive through and spread the oil out over long distances. This can result in a relatively small oil spill become a much larger and more serious issue in a very short period.

Rapid Response Experts

Our oil spill response teams are experts in delivering a fast and effective oil spill cleaning service. We can also deploy multiple teams if the size of the job requires it. The extensive training and industry leading equipment we utilise during the cleaning process guarantees that we will deliver the best service available in London and that we succeed in reducing the amount of disruption an oil spill can cause.

An example of a similar scenario is an oil spill in Hyde Park during a Netflix film production. The oil spill put the production on hold and disrupted traffic on the main road. The consequences would have been far reaching if it had not been for our rapid response teams. They arrived on site in a matter of hours and quickly completed the oil spill cleanup. The production was able to recommence, with the oil spill only causing minimal disruption to the production and to the traffic.
