Reviewed Dry Cleaning - Spill and Leak Prevention Options
Following are a list of options that have been reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. These options have worked at other facilities and may work at yours.
|Check hoses, couplings, pumps, valves and gaskets frequently in order to detect leaks. Make repairs promptly.
|Take special care when handling your cleaning materials to prevent spills. You'll avoid costly clean up.
Know your solvent needs
|Know how much solvent your machine normally uses. If solvent use suddenly increases, find out why. Not knowing the answer may be costly (machine repairs, hazardous waste clean up).
Cover your containers
|Keep all containers covered to prevent evaporation and spillage.
|Provide secondary containment in areas where solvents are stored. Small leaks will not become more costly spills.
