Many businesses use a variety of hazardous materials, such as oil, grease, fuel, and chemicals. They may use them to make other products or for other purposes, but when a spill happens, you need something to absorb the liquid so that it can be cleaned up quickly.
Absorbent kits are the answer you seek because they can be general purpose to handle almost anything or you can find particular options that are designed to clean up chemicals, fuels/oils, and even mercury. The best part is that you can order as many as you need and they will be checked and refilled as required.
All absorbent kits will come with a variety of products to help you clean up a spill fast. You’ll get land socks and mats that will absorb any spilled liquid, helping to contain the area and keep it safe. Plus, you can pick it up and throw it away in the disposable bags that are included. In most cases, you will also get the Personal Protective Equipment necessary, such as gloves, anti-static waste bags, safety glasses, and overalls. The absorbents used will depend on the kit you choose. For example, a Hazchem kit will probably have different absorbents than oil or general purpose.
At EcoSpill, they have a variety of products designed to clean up spills and prevent contamination of other worksites or environments, such as bodies of water. Their products can be found in general purpose, oil/fuel, Hazchem, and specialty varieties, which means you can pick the one that best suits your needs. If you’re unsure of what you need, their friendly staff can help you make the right decision. Absorbent kits come with everything necessary to absorb liquid and prevent large-scale spillage, protecting your property, the environment, and your employees.
