Shopping Centre Oil Clean Up
New Life Restoration was called to a shopping centre where cooking oil was irresponsibly dumped and consequently created a oil spill in a bin collection area.
An unknown individual dumped cooking oil into a large steel bin at local shopping centre, causing 60 litres of cooking to leak out the bottom and onto the concrete surface in the bin collection area. Approximately 10m2 were affected, and caused a strong odor from the area. Nearby cars were driving through and causing oil to cross contiminate further bitumen.
New Life Restoration was called to clean up the concreted surface, and make clean the bin area.
The bins were moved out of the way, and the kitty litter initially put down to absorb some of the oil was collected and disposed off site. the technicians first poured a specialised degreasing cleaning solution to help break down the oil when scrubbed. After the concrete was scrubbed of oil, using the truck mounted pressure cleaning extraction machine, the technicians applied further cleaning solutions with a pressure spray. Once done, the oil was pressure hosed towards an extraction wand that extracted the resulting liquid. This was repeated few times, until the area was satisfactorily cleaned.
Our technician Bob extracted the liquid
Finished product, much cleaner
The bin collection area was completely cleaned of the oil and looked as if there was never a spill to begin with. The client was happy, and the bins were moved back into place. If you have any oil spill enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact as. You can do so by clicking the button below.
