Oil Spill Clean Up Etobicoke

Home heating oil spills occur when storage tanks develop a leak, are overfilled, or if the heating system malfunctions. Since heating oil tanks are often located in the basement, spills can result in contamination of the basement contents, concrete slab and/or the soil/groundwater below. SOS Inc. is a qualified company to clean up environmental spills in Scarborough by thoroughly removing the oil and scrub all surfaces free of the residue, as well as using proper ventilation to help dissipate odours. Specialized Onsite Services Inc. is a qualified company meeting the requirements of the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and the TSSA.

Emergency Spill Response Scarborough

Fuel oil spills are typically associated with leaking underground fuel storage tanks. If buried storage tanks are left unattended over time corrosion will occur eventually causing perforations or holes in the tank itself. Buried storage tanks can be found on both residential and commercial/industrial properties around Scarborough.

Basic Steps in Responding to a Scarborough Oil Spill

Both Home heating oil and Fuel oil spills are typically governed by the Technical Safety Standards Authority (TSSA) as usually the loss is connected to a heating appliance or fuel dispensing operation of some kind. The TSSA will oversee and govern a loss within the property boundaries. If the spill reaches the groundwater table or if the spill migrates off site (or off the property) the TSSA will no longer govern the loss and authority will be handed over to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC). After remediation of an oil spill in Scarborough is complete, a final technical report is required by the TSSA and/or the MOECC for site closure. The final report must be signed off by a qualified person (QP) such as an Environmental Engineer.

Step 1: Stop the spill.

Step 2: Contain and recover the spill.

Step 3: Collect the contaminated sorbent.

Step 4: Secure the waste.

Client Testimonials

Excellent service! I highly recommend to anyone in the market for asbestos removal. Cam responded within several hours of my inquiry email and quickly scheduled an assessment and testing. He was clear, transparent and shared information in an easily understandable way (perfect for the asbestos novice). His team quickly and thoroughly completed the job and left the place very tidy. After the job was completed, we discovered more asbestos in another part of the house and he and his team did an equally great job the second time around.
