Soil Remediation and Contamination Cleanup Industry leading Lubetech Technology
Oil spills on soil present different concerns to spillages on hard surfaces, and time is of the essence, so a soil remediation service should be sought out quickly. When cleaning oil spills on soil, the main priority is containing the spill to prevent oil from entering drains and water runs.
The biggest concern with oil spills on soil is stopping it seeping deeper into the ground. Oil will seep further into the soil where it has been spilled. However, if the soil is compressed or saturated, the oil wont penetrate and will instead spread on the surface. Soil contamination poses significant risk to the surrounding wildlife and vegetation.
Environmental Dangers of Soil Contamination
This can lead to a variety of problems. Because oil spilt on soil prevents the soil from absorbing water the existing vegetation begin to wilt and die. The oil spill will also prevent new grass and plants from growing too. And if contaminated plant life is consumed by the local wildlife, it can lead to the contamination further up the food chain. This can be life-threatening to certain animals, even risking hazards to human health.
Oil spills on soil are far more complex than those on hard surfaces, such as concrete. Subsequently, they can be more expensive to rectify, but the severity is the same. Over the past five years, oil spills and soil contamination have consistently been among the UK’s top three pollutants. As well as being illegal to pollute, you also have a duty of care to the environment to clean up and contain any leaks and spillages.
