Are Oil Spills Dangerous?

Oil spills may result in several dangerous issues, so they require a speedy clean up.

Exposure in the short-term to an oil spillage can cause irritation to the eyes and skin, and can also result in breathing issues. Long-term exposure may have even more serious consequences, including lung and kidney disease, heart conditions, and even fatalities. Oil spillages are also a potential slip hazard, and it’s possible to become ill if you drink water that is contaminated by oil.

Oil spillages may also result in considerable damage to any materials and surfaces that they contact. Therefore, all affected materials must be safely and quickly removed to limit the damage. Oil spills also present a significant fire risk.

The environment also feels the impact of an oil spill, which can be very harmful and even potentially fatal for local wildlife. If the soil becomes contaminated, its health is negatively impacted and if any plants that grow in that soil absorb the oil, the livestock feeding off the plants, together with plant-eating insects and local wildlife will be harmed. Those plants will also stop growing since their seeds can no longer germinate.

Oil also enters into watercourses via rocks and soil, polluting it with the result of greater impact on plants and wildlife.

Which Oil Spillage Cleaning Services Can Bio Response Provide?

We can clean up spills of hydraulic oil, which is very toxic and flammable, making it very hazardous for both the environment and human life. Whether a hose has ruptured and leaked, or whether there has been a large spillage, we can deal with it professionally and safely.

We can also clean up spillages of diesel oil. When we inhale diesel fumes, we can become dizzy, and suffer from breathing problems, nausea, and headaches. If diesel oil contacts the skin, it may cause irritations. It can also cause eye irritations too. Exposure in the long term can result in significant health conditions which can eventually prove fatal. Furthermore, diesel oil represents a slip and fire hazard.
