Spills are always a nuisance, but when oils are involved, they can be a huge inconvenience and a safety issue, whether they’re large in nature or just a small leak. Fortunately, you can find a variety of spill kits available to clean up the mess and keep it contained. You’ll find many options in a variety of sizes, all available from EcoSpill, a leader in spill kits.

Type You Need

The first step is to ensure that you get the proper spill kit. You’ll find general or universal purpose, hazmat, and oil only, as well as specialty versions. For most oils, you will require an oil-only kit because it is designed to deal with your substance. For example, if the spillage occurs in water, the kit will clean up the oil and leave the water. If oils are mixed with other types of chemical, a universal or general purpose kit may be more suitable.


When determining the size of kit you’ll need, it’s best to consider the worst case scenario at your facility. You can always break it up into smaller kits that will fit in tight spaces easily, but ensure you’ll have enough product and absorbent on hand to clean up everything that could possibly spill in a worst-case scenario.


Your best bet is to choose products from a reputable company known for its high-quality workmanship and material use. You don’t want to purchase something that doesn’t work, potentially damaging the environment and your reputation in the process, so it’s best to choose high-quality products.
