Soil Remediation

Soil contamination is caused by the presence of man made chemical alterations in naked ground.

This type of contamination typically results from the rupture of underground storage tanks, application of pesticides, percolation of contaminated surface water, oil and fuel dumping, leaching of waste from landfills or direct discharge of industrial waste to the soil. The most common chemicals involved are petroleum hydrocarbons, solvents, pesticides, lead and other heavy metals.

The concern over soil contamination stems primarily from health risks, direct contact with the contaminated soil, vapors from the contaminants, and from secondary contamination of water supplies within and under the soil. Many local residents have been witness to the level of activity involved in the clean up of contaminated sites. Mapping of contaminated soil sites and the resulting cleanup are time consuming and expensive tasks.

Local council and property builders sometimes use multiple site cleanup and remediation strategies, However the most economical technique often used is to excavate the soil from the affected area and take it to a disposal site which is authorized and approved by local council. The soil excavation technique also applies to dredging of bay mud which may contain toxins.

We have recently expanded our operations in this area and have worked on some significant site remediation projects.

What our customers say about us

I am the Director of a building, roofing and home improvements business. We are commercial, industrial and residential roofers among other things. For many years we have used B class licenced sub-contractors for Asbestos Roof removal. There were too many risks involved and we decided to find an A Class professional removal company that could handle, risk, personal safety, safe asbestos removal and clearance. I spoke to several companies and decided to work with the team at A1. Ben, Lesley and their staff are without a doubt the most professional company I have dealt with in an industry previously known for being anything but that. Ben’s staff are polite and courteous to my customers, they have the most up to date equipment and machinery and are continually on the lookout for new tools and equipment that make the area risk free. The A1 asbestos team are the most affordable and intelligent solution when dealing with the immense risk and scale of all asbestos removal and demolition work and will leave you or your customer feeling very at ease in a potentially hazardous environment. Highly recommend.
