Oil Remediation

Merryhill offers the remediation of oil contaminated land, from small domestic oil spills to more serious civil works.

We can offer the following services:

  • Conduct a site visit/ inspection
  • Take samples and bore holes (to difficult depths if necessary)
  • Provide sample analysis certificates
  • Provide report and recommendations
  • Provide decontamination treatment
  • Conduct a decontamination clearance check on completion

Document Recovery

Wet paper loses its strength very quickly indeed, and reaches the point where it cannot be handled at all without causing damage.  If it is allowed to dry in blocks, the sheets will stick together so firmly that it will become impossible to separate them.  Merryhill recommends that the most effective method of damage limitation is to freeze dry the papers.  This will buy our clients time, for decision making and for the labour intensive process of recovery. Merryhill can though make your essential papers as usable as possible.
