Our Oil Spill Cleanup Service in Surrey
The Ideal Response oil spill cleaning service is a four-step process that has been designed to mitigate all risks posed to the environment and leave no traces of the spill behind. Our process consists of:
Upon arrival, our team of oil experts will assess the situation and determine the best way to contain the spill. Preventing the spill is an important step in the process because it prevents the spill from spreading and limits the potential risks to the environment. Surrey, like many counties in England, has rivers, streams and many water sources. Preventing oil from reaching and contaminating water sources is an extremely important part of protecting the environment. Our experts deploy oil barriers and absorbent material during this stage of the oil spill cleanup.
At Ideal Response we use Lubetech bioremediation technology to neutralise the oil. The bioremediation process breaks don’t he harmful carbons in the oil, completely neutralising it and rendering it water soluble. Similarly, to the containment aspect of the cleanup service, this step is an important part of our oil spill cleaning process. Our experts apply the Lubetech to the spill, ensuring that the solution is completely mixed in to neutralise the entire spill. This mitigates the risks to the environment and surrounding area.
Once the oil has been fully neutralised, we will use pressure washers to dilute the water-soluble solution. The pressure washers will also loosen any of the solution from the surface, allowing for more efficient removal. To remove the solution, we utilise state-of-the-art wet vac technology. For our Surrey oil spill cleanup service, the wet vacs and absorbent materials are used to remove all traces of the spill. Once this stage of the Surrey oil cleanup is complete there will be no visible signs of the spill remaining.
In the final stage of the cleaning process, we focus on decontaminating the surfaces where the spill occurred. Despite the fact that the spill is neutralised and removed, the surface itself may still hold traces of the oil and still poses a danger. At Ideal Response we don’t stop until the entire process is completed, leaving no chance of risk or danger behind. During this step we utilise various methods and equipment to fully decontaminate the area. This step, as well as the previous three are all documented. These documented steps will be provided to the client at the end of the service.
The Importance of Hiring Experts
Oil spills can quickly spread if not dealt with quickly and effectively. Rain, footfall and traffic, as well as many other things, can spread oil very quickly and over large distances. Oil poses many risks to both the environment and to people. Not only is flammable, meaning it is explosive and can cause fires when ignited, it is also extremely toxic and can lead to numerous health complications.
If oil is allowed to contaminate a water source, it can cause untold damage to the local eco-system. It can result in death of wildlife and affect the health and well being of anyone or anything that encounters it. In a county like Surrey in which the rivers Wye and Mole pass through, it is vital that any oil spill is handled professionally to prevent any large-scale environmentally incidents.
It should also be stressed that attempting to perform an oil spill cleanup without the help of professionals will not guarantee results. In some cases, it may even further contribute to the issue of the oil spill. Without the knowledge, skillset and technology needed to perform an oil spill clean, it is very likely that oil will still be present and will be spread. For both people and businesses, you can be held responsible and heavily fined if the oil spill reaches an open water source.
