Industrial Cleaning & Decontamination

Our industrial cleaning and decontamination services are available for jobs of all sizes ranging from tank/bund clean outs to decommissioning whole industrial sites. With any industrial cleaning job the most important factor is health and safety. Many of the substances we work with pose significant health and safety risks including flammable substances, toxic substances, mixtures of substances/residues, substances which may give off toxic gasses and substances which are incompatible with many cleaning agents.

We have 20 years’ experience conducting decontamination projects in order to leave your site safe without compromising the safety of our own staff. Depending on the nature of the contamination our whole cleaning process may need to take place in full chemical suits and under self-contained breathing apparatus.

Following any project we provide a risk based validation of the procedure to satisfy clients that the site is suitable for future use. We also provide human health risk assessments when providing closure and/or certification to validate that the decontamination process has been successful. We utilise base chemical toxicity data and industry accepted software for risk appraisal and should such data be unavailable, we will enter dialogue with relevant bodies e.g. HSE and EA, pioneering safe methods of work to achieve set target levels for contaminated sites.

Of course environmental issues are also a high priority, when undertaking any project we ensure waste is minimised. Any waste which is created is appropriately classified by our hazardous waste WAMITAB qualified staff and disposed of via an authorised route under our upper tier carrier broker dealer licence.

We pride ourselves on our industrial cleaning capabilities and the fact that we can clean substances and stains other can’t. We specialise in the cleaning and decontamination in all areas including hard to access areas such as confined spaces and working at height. Our clients range from small local businesses to international companies and public bodies.

Our capabilities include the safe removal of hazardous substances such as:

  • Potentially lethal toxic substances e.g. Cyanide and hexavalent chromium
  • Extremely strong acids e.g. Sulphuric Acid
  • Extremely strong alkalis e.g. Sodium Hydroxide
  • Highly oxidising/explosive chemicals
  • Extremely hard to remove substances e.g. Heavy Fuel Oil
