Paint Spill Removal
Paint spills, whether the result of malicious vandalism or an accident – such as a truck overturning, can spread quickly and if not handled efficiently and can cause environmental damage.
The techniques we employ to solve paint and ink spills are chemically based. By breaking down the base of the paint or ink, we can chemically suspend it, draw it from the substrate and vacuum collect the residue. Even the most difficult types of dyes have been successfully cleaned up using this process.
Accidental liquid spills do unfortunately happen and can cause extensive environmental damage & embarrassment to company reputations.
It is important that they are professionally managed and dealt with correctly and quickly. The Graffiti Eaters have mobile spill response units that can be mobilised quickly to contain a spill and prevent it spreading and entering sensitive areas like storm water drains.
How we conduct Paint Spill Removal
The process involves containing the spill from spreading then stabilise the substance by covering it with an absorbent material designed to soak up and retain it.
The absorbent material is then collected & discharged according to EPA guidelines.
A series of cleaning solutions are then applied to the spilt liquid to break down its molecular bond and release it from the surface.
The final step in the process is to wash the surface down with water under pressure and leave the area totally clean and free of any contamination.
All waste water is vacuum collected to ensure nothing enters a drain or harms the environment.
So if this ever happens to you, don’t get sweaty palms worrying about damaging the environment and dealing with the EPA, call in the experts to manage it all for you!
