Competent Oil Spill Cleaning Services

Based in the South East of England, we’re on hand around the clock for customers in Tonbridge.

Our oil spill cleaning experts are available for clients across the nation, including Tonbridge.

When discussing oil disasters, we are more likely to consider current ocean contamination than oil spills in our gardens. While they are less common, household oil tanks are still used by rural homeowners to heat their homes. In the case of a leak, the surrounding environment is exposed to pollution, which could swiftly become a crisis.

Our primary focus at ICE Cleaning is our client’s safety, and we understand the potential dangers that a domestic oil spill may bring. If an oil spill has affected soil, water, a hard surface or involves petrol, diesel, hydraulic oil, or any other liquid, we can help. Our highly skilled specialists will remove any residue that may have been left behind by the oil, thanks to their considerable industrial cleaning knowledge.

Dewpoint® Professional Corporate Membership

We’re Tonbridge’s leading experts for oil spill cleaning solutions.

Our professionals are prepared to employ industrial equipment to contain the oil, remove it from the area, and handle dangerous oil spill circumstances. Always prioritising the client’s safety, we conduct a survey to gauge the magnitude and severity of the problem before we go to work.

We remove any remaining oil and chemically sanitise the contaminated area. It may be necessary to repeat this process several times before the TORIK Cleaning system finishes the job. Our skilled cleaners will remain on-site and remove any contaminated objects off-site until you are satisfied with the outcome.

Who is responsible for cleaning a domestic oil spill?

When you own a heating oil tank of your own, the containment and maintenance of it fall to you. You should always have a qualified oil specialist come to conduct inspections regularly if you cannot do it yourself, but you still have a responsibility to prevent spills.

You must safely store and contain your personal oil tank where it poses minimal environmental risks — away from local water bodies and protected woodlands. We recommend purchasing insurance to cover the tank, oil, and possible clean-up services you may need to contact.

If a spill occurs, you are legally obligated to inform your local council, water companies, and oil cleaning specialists. If your heating tank is insured, you should contact your insurance company to report the incident and pay any excess fees. If you fail to take responsibility or contaminate the environment, you might be fined by the council or taken to court over your negligence.

How to know if your domestic oil tank is leaking

Domestic oil tanks usually have a lifespan of 15 years, but without the proper maintenance and care, they could rapidly deteriorate. Consider switching to a safer, green energy source to power your home to protect the environment. With regular safety checks and assessments, you can prevent leaks — and you should watch out for these signs that may indicate a spill:

  • The support and base of the tank are cracked and damaged
  • There is visible damp on the valves, filters, and pipework
  • You can taste oil in your water
  • There is oily residue around your tank or in the surrounding soil
  • You can see dead or discoloured plants near the oil tank.
  • The fuel level has decreased dramatically over a short period
  • There is a smell of burning or hot oil around your property

What are the health risks of an oil spill?

Ingesting, inhaling, or touching oil could severely affect your health. Short-term exposure may leave you with some temporary symptoms, but it might still be detrimental to your health.

Inhaling oil vapours for an extended period can lead to long-term health issues that affect you for the rest of your life. You must call 111 when you start to experience acute symptoms or contact 999 for severe injuries such as oil burns.

  • Drowsiness
  • Loss of coordination
  • Disorientation
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Euphoria
  • Dizziness

Chronic symptoms
