Fuel Spill Cleanup
North Texas Spill Response’s HazMat team is always available for immediate emergency fuel spill cleanup. We provide a variety of services to all areas in North Texas, including diesel fuel spill cleanup, gasoline spills, hazardous material cleanup, and hydrocarbon remediation. If you experience an accidental fuel release due to a punctured fuel tank, a tanker rollover, leaking or broken fuel lines, overfills, or any other hazardous materials breach, call us immediately for a quick response. The sooner you make the call for spill response, the quicker the fuel spill containment cleanup process can begin. If delayed, fuel oil can soak into concrete floors, wood support beams and even flow into cracks in the floor and even get behind walls, increasing the expense of remediation. In extreme cases of neglect to remedy a fuel or oil spill, removal of walls and floors may be required.
Emergency Response Fuel Spill Cleanup
For the most part, small fuel spills (5 gallons or less) can be cleaned up successfully with Oil Dry, kitty litter, or other spill remediation products available to the general public. However, if the odor remains afterward, you may need to call a professional to ensure that no long term hazards exist. Short term exposure to fuel oil vapors usually doesn’t cause any long-term negative effects. But, breathing these vapors in tight, confined quarters can cause nausea and dizziness. You may also experience eye and throat irritation. Very long-term exposure to a fuel spill, due to not addressing the issue correctly sooner, can cause serious long-term health issues. Exposure to fuel oil vapors for an extended period could negatively impact your liver, kidneys, and cause other problems. Regardless of where the spill occurs, at home or at work, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and call in the professionals. For emergency spill response call on North Texas Spill Response.
Besides providing fuel spill containment services, North Texas Spill Response also provides remediation services for industrial fuel and oil spills that occurred in the past. Give us a call and one of our environmental cleanup specialists will promptly provide ground water assessment, soil sampling and more.

What is a hazardous material?
A hazardous material abbreviated HazMat is any substance that is known to constitute a threat to a person’s health, property, or the environment. HazMat substances include fuels, nuclear waste products, toxic chemicals, and radiological, biological, and chemical agents. Hazardous materials may be released into the environment as a solid, liquid, or gas. If you are ever involved, in any way, with a HazMat emergency, you need to be very careful as these types of spills have caused health problems, injuries, and even death in humans as well as animals. That is why it’s important to have knowledge of an environmental services company you can trust.

We will not only ensure that the affected areas are clean, but we will also provide removal and transportation of the harmful substances and materials.
Fuel Spill Containment
Controlling a fuel spill, or spill containment is vital as doing so focuses on ensuring that the spill does not become a larger hazard than it already is. There are many methods of controlling a spill, including mechanical containment, removing soil, using chemicals to stop the spread, and installing absorbent fences.
Diesel Spill Cleanup
Petrodiesel is the most widely used diesel fuel today. And, when a petrodiesel spill occurs, you must work quickly to clean up the spill as it has a tendency to smell and stain whatever it comes into contact with. However, an oil solution applied by trained environmental specialists works wonders at cleaning up diesel spills.
