Spill Kitsspill

When conducting pest control or handling chemicals of any kind, you never can really predict if or when a spill can happen. However, accidents can occur so it’s best to be ready for if a chemical spill does take place so it doesn’t result in any hazardous situation or damage the environment in any way. That is why Solutions Pest and Lawn carries professional grade spill kits for clean ups, whether major or minor.

You Never Know When You Need To Clean Up a Spill

A spill is any release of a pesticide chemical by accident. The accidental spill may be minor—involving only a splash of sorts from a container—or it could be major, involving large amounts of pesticide or pesticide-containing materials such as wash water, soil, and absorbents. It is imperative in these types of situations to respond correctly when a spill occurs. Prompt cleanup of spills helps to protect our natural resources, especially essential resources such as water.

Most spill kits you may find out when shopping on the internet or at your local store are very basic and simple and may be properly equipped to handle a serious chemical spill. At Solutions Pest and Lawn, we have a high-quality spill kit which contains absorbent diking tubes and pillows so you can adequately and efficiently suck up any spill rather so it doesn’t stick around and effect the environment.

Simple Procedure When Using a Spill Kit

  1. Put on protective gear. If you are unsure of the toxicity of a pesticide don’t take a chance: have on proper footwear, gloves; eye protection; and a respirator.

  2. Stop the source of the spill to control it. If a small container is leaking, place it into a larger chemical-resistant container, such as a plastic drum or bag. Depending on the severity of the issue you may have to call for help.

  3. As soon as the source of the leak is controlled, keep the spill in an area as small as possible.

  4. Using the spill kit, cover the entire site of the spill with absorbent materials such as spill pillows, and tubes which are found in your kit.

  5. Depending on the type of chemical, after the spill has been absorbed, the materials should be disposed of in a responsible manner. Follow the instructions provided in the spill kit for options on how to properly get rid of spill kit materials.

  6. Use a combination of chlorine bleach, dishwater detergent, and water to clean any vehicles or equipment that you hope to reuse that the spill came into contact with.
