Although drivers do their best to avoid accidents and the fuel spills that are often the result, accidents and spills happen. And when they do, you want to know who to call for fast, effective emergency spill response. Team Pro-Enviro specializes in spill containment and spill recovery for motor vehicle accidents.
When cleaning up spills and recovering truck accidents, we use a lot of equipment and materials. Depending on the severity and location of the spill, it’s vital to call in a vacuum truck to assist with the recovery. Here, we share how vac trucks are integral to emergency spill response.
What’s a Vacuum Truck?
A vacuum truck, also known as a liquid vacuum truck, is a truck used to remove liquid waste. Regarding emergency spill recovery, we use vac trucks to suck up fuel and oil spills. They are especially useful if the spill has contaminated a ditch, waterway, or storm drain.
How Do Vacuum Trucks Work?
Other methods for removing liquid waste require a lot of manual labor, or the spill is not accessible without specialized equipment. With a vacuum truck, on the other hand, the truck’s powerful vacuum takes care of the work, sucking up liquid waste on the spot. The waste is stored in the truck’s container until we move it to a regulation-compliant disposal facility. This clean-up method promotes safety, and it also reduces liability.
Environmental damage is one of the biggest concerns associated with fuel and oil-spills on the road. When spills happen, they can seep underground and enter waterways and storm drains, and the resulting damage can be catastrophic. You must alert the authorities and deal with the spill quickly and safely. Team Pro-Enviro uses all the necessary materials and equipment to ensure the spill is contained, cleaned, and the site remediated. Vacuum trucks can be a significant part of that process.
