Hopefully this blog will reduce some of the scaremongering we’ve come across when dealing with oil spills in a domestic setting, in particular with spills occurring in close proximity to the property’s garage.
Over the past few years, upon attending various properties to assess the spill we’ve been astonished to be told by homeowners, that they’ve been informed by some builders, plumbers, heating engineers, etc that the only way to deal with the loss of oil is to knock the garage down, remove the contamination and then rebuild!
Understandably the homeowners and tenants are incredibly worried about the impending cost and disruption this would cause, which is entirely unnecessary.
Of the dozens of spills we’ve attended, many of which are near a garage or even inside the garage, we have never ever proposed demolishing the garage. There are many options at our disposal for dealing with a loss of oil and would be happy to discuss them with you, if the need ever arises.
