BELFOR’S approach

We have developed a step by step remediation process with defined costs ensuring a well managed process with no surprises.

The remediation procedure involves 4 key stages:

  1. Site investigation – detailed assessment to determine the spread of oil with sampling and analysis.
  2. In depth exploratory work and further sampling if required
  3. Remediation – removal and disposal of contaminated material and elimination of remaining contamination using bio-remediation (the use of micro-organisms to safely break down contaminants)
  4. Refurbishment & Repair – including the replacement of damp proof courses, rebuilding, replacing pipes and redecorating.
