Another heating oil spill in PA
Entrance to the basement
The normal process for cleanup of contaminated soil would be to remove the contaminated dirt and replace it with clean dirt. As the photograph shows excavation of the dirt with mechanical means without affecting the structure is not possible and that was a motivating factor for selection of VaporRemed. In this situation VaporRemed apparently been selected like a fire fighting solution since no other options were available.
As soon as we reached the site, we began discussing the strategy with the project manager and the photograph shows John our former VP in discussions.

Application of VaporRemed
First application of VaporRemed was sprayed using a sprayer attached to the garden hose. The results were almost immediate when the strong smell was found to be progressively reduced in a perceptible manner with application of VaporRemed.
