Soil sampling and collection

Environmental samples are obtained directly from a site for laboratory testing. Samples will be accompanied to the laboratory by a chain-of-custody form along with location and depths of where the samples were taken. If a contaminated site is encountered or suspected, assessment activities are typically undertaken to determine the severity of the contamination. Quite often environmental drilling companies are employed to drill small boreholes into the ground for the purposes of collecting soil samples at pre-determined depths. In some cases, construction equipment can be utilized for the same if the contaminated area is shallow. The nature of the contamination will determine what a soil sample will be analyzed for at an accredited laboratory. If assessment activities identify a contaminated zone remediation (or clean-up) options will be presented.

During the course of any remediation project, confirmatory or verification sampling is required. It is primarily these sample results that will indicate whether a site has been cleaned up to a satisfactory level or if more "clean-up" is required.

It is very important to wear disposable protective gloves during any soil sampling activity. Gloves are utilized for the protection of the worker but also to protect the assessment from cross contamination. A new pair of disposable gloves should be used for every sample collected and all samples should be placed in laboratory supplied labelled bottles only.

Client Testimonials

This past spring when we returned home, our basement was flooded. After notifying our insurance company of the problem, withing 3 hours SOS was on the scene and never stopped until the basement was cleaned out. We hired SOS to do the renovations. Everyone went above and beyond to get the job done. The workmanship was exceptional and the subcontractors did an amazing job. Brain and Levi worked at our place most of the time and they were so friendly and did a remarkable job. We recommend SOS to everyone. If you are even in trouble, don't hesitate to call SOS.Thank you for a job well done.
