Oil Spill Clean Up Minto

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 Minto 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.

Emergency Spill Response Minto

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 Minto.

Basic Steps in Responding to a Minto 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, Conservation and Parks (MOECP). After remediation of an oil spill in Minto is complete, a final technical report is required by the TSSA and/or the MOECP 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.

When we found a large area mold in our attic and basement, we reached to SOS. During the work, they had found more hidden mold and means more work than expected. They returned our home next day and got this resolved properly and thoroughly. We are so satisfied and feel grateful to have SOS team to deal with it. We will strongly recommend SOS if someone encounter the similar situation and need professional help.

I cannot recommend this company enough. They really came through when I needed an abestos removal done in a short time frame. Not only was the turnaround between our call and completion fast but they went over and above. They took calls from the buyers lawyer and made sure the process was well documented. I would recommend them to anyone.
