Oil Spill Clean-Up Service
A combination of state-of-the-art technology and professional expertise allows us to transform your site back to the safe, clean, non-hazardous state it once was.
The UK's leading oil spill cleaning company
Whether you require assistance for the clean-up of a gasoline spill, a diesel spill, a hydraulic oil spill, an oil spill in water, on soil or a hard surface oil spill, we will not leave until all traces of oil have been eradicated and we have your approval that you are 100% satisfied with the level of service received.
Here at ICE Cleaning, we can facilitate the removal of oil from contaminated waters or soil.

Oil Spill Cleaning FAQs
How quickly should the oil spill be seen to?
The oil spill should be treated within 24 hours to avoid the oil spreading. Oil that has spilt where it can cause environmental damage will only have a limited time to prevent further disaster, so you must act quick when oil spills.
What is the oil spill clean-up process that you use?
Our team will begin by completing a thorough risk assessment of the area before conducting a 6-stage decontamination process:
- Contain the spill
- Identify the oil type
- Break down the oil
- Deep clean and decontaminate
- Test the area once more to ensure all residue is gone
- Issue a full decontamination certificate
What experience do you have in oil spill cleaning?
What size of spills do you cover?
We cover all sizes of oil spills. Naturally, some incidents may take longer for us to clean up than others.
How toxic is an oil spill?
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, oil is a mixture of different chemicals but no one oil is the same. Oil is considered toxic because of how it impacts living things: physically and biochemically.
How does an oil spill damage the environment?
Oil spills have the potential to cause irreversible and devastating effects on the environment long after the spill has occurred. Marine and general wildlife can be harmed or killed by oil, either by being coated in it or poisoning them.
The ocean and above-water surfaces are at risk of becoming polluted or near-destroyed by an oil spill. Its impact on local habitats can disrupt the ecosystem forever.
Will the chemicals used to clean the oil cause further environmental damage?
Though our chemicals should be carefully administered, they will cause no further damage to the environment. We aim to make our procedures as eco-friendly as possible.
Estimates and charges
Will the scale of the oil spill be reflected in the cost of the clean up?
Yes. In order to cover our costs, the extent of the oil spill will be reflected in the proposed cost. Call us today to receive a free no-obligation quote for your personal situation.

Our technicians have undergone specialist training
To ensure all individuals involved in the oil spillage clean-up service are safe, we make it mandatory for all of our teams to go through rigorous and detailed safety training. Some of the key aspects of the sessions include:
- Following instructions and having a high level of understanding of the decontamination process when an oil spill is involved.
- Thoroughly understand the health hazards that can occur from an oil spill if proper personal protective equipment is not worn, and safety precautions are out in place.
- A complete briefing on the emergency procedures under the site-specific health and safety plan (HASP).
- A high understanding of what duties need to be performed and in what order to ensure significant effective results.
- Knowledge to not handle any unmarked or unlabelled containers.
- Complete knowledge of warning labels such s NFPA 704M that can often be found on chemical containers that are being used.
Our technicians have also been trained to be able to adapt to quickly-changing situations, such as when cleaning up oil on the shoreline turns into an oil spillage clean up from the ocean. As there are many forms of oil, different methods, techniques and technologies will be needed to completely eradicate the substance along with any harmful toxins.
Employing an oil spillage cleaning company that fully understands the type of oils that are around is imperative to completing an effective cleaning service. Our experienced technicians can respond to all types of oil spills no matter the location or environment. We can carry out clean-up in many kinds of settings, such as:
- In freshwater
- On soil
- In the ocean
- Pavement or other
From a minor oil spill to a major industrial disaster, we can deal with any emergency. If you are looking for professional and reliable emergency oil spillage cleaning services, then we are the company for you.
Our 6-stage oil spill remediation process
Depending on where the oil spilt and what type of oil has been exposed, we will need to employ a bespoke plan of action to tackle the spill. This will consist of a 6-stage process where our technicians will:
- Contain the spill immediately and limit contamination
- Use specialised solutions to identify the type of oil
- Utilise an industrial-grade agent to break down the oil
- Deep clean the area with our state-of-the-art technology
- Test the area to ensure all traces of oil are gone and place any residue aside for proper disposal
- Issue you a decontamination certificate to ensure your site is safe again
All of our solutions and tools are certified, complying with the necessary environmental laws and protections in place. We aim to make the cleaning process as eco-friendly as possible, and our technicians work with the local ecosystem in mind.
Why you should act quickly during an oil spill
If left long enough, oil can leave behind a nasty stain. The longer it is left to fester, the more challenging it is to remove. A professional oil spillage clean-up team must be called in a timely manner to eradicate any hazards, both on the surfaces and particles that may be within the air.
As well as being a hazardous substance, oil is considered a toxic form of pollution. It can affect all wildlife surroundings, including animals and plants. When oil spills at home or in the workplace, you must:
- Raise the alarm and call appropriate authorities
- Evacuate the site
- Take roll call to identify any missing persons
- Wear gloves, masks, boots, and other PPE if you must re-enter the area
- Contain and control the source of the spill with absorbent materials where safe
- Cover nearby drains to prevent spread to local water supplies or environmental contamination
Hazards when cleaning up an oil spill
Protecting the safety of all parties is a top priority for us here at ICE Cleaning. You must be aware of the hazards if you are qualified personnel using a spill kit on-site. When it comes to an oil spill, our on-site specialist technicians will face many potential hazards from elements such as:
Depending on the location of the oil spill, various other potential risks may be present. This includes the possibility of slipping and falling, drowning, and heat-related illnesses occurring. There are also health consequences of oil spills where you may display symptoms like:
- Chest pain
- Memory loss
How to prevent a spill at home
If you are one of the many homeowners that own and use domestic heating oil tanks to warm their homes, you will be responsible for any damages caused by them.
Although there are many perks to owning a heating system, it requires extensive maintenance. Whether your domestic oil tank is located indoors, underground, or above-ground outside, you have a responsibility to prevent a leak.
The Broadland District Council has supplied a full guide on how you can prevent spills with your oil tank, which also provides more extensive information regarding a domestic tank.
