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 St. Thomas 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, Conservation and Parks and the TSSA.
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 St. Thomas.
