Initial steps to take upon discovering an oil spill or an oil leak at home.
If you have discovered an oil leak form your oil tank or oil boiler, the following action should be taken immediately;
- Locate the source of your home oil leak or home oil spill
- Stop the oil leak and reduce the oil spill by shutting off valves. If a home heating oil tank has been knocked or blown over, return tank to an upright position.
- If your home heating oil tank is cracked and leaking oil, stem the flow. This can be done by gently rubbing a bar of soap along the crack/fracture. Another option is using strong adhesive tape to temporarily repair the oil leak. These methods are only temporary measures until an Oil Clean Up Specialist arrives.
- Spread absorbent materials across the surface of the oil spill (sand, peat moss, newspapers)
