Spill Absorbent Pads and Mats vs SpillFix

How to use absorbent mats to cleanup your spills?

ABSORBENT MATS FOR SMALL SPILLS, DRIPS OR LEAKS

Here's what you do:

  1. Figure out what type of mat you need. There are several types of absorbent mats to choose from: universal, pig, chemical, oil only and a whole bunch more.
  2. Place the mat(s) on the spill or under the leaking, dripping pipes, machinery or equipment. Leave it down.
  3. Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Come back later to finish the spill cleanup.
  4. The fun begins. Somehow pick up and handle the sticky, nasty, soggy, dripping mats as you pull them off the spill area. Make sure to use gloves.
  5. Place them in a hazardous waste container/bin.
  6. Reach for some fresh mats or a mop and a bucket to try and clean up the spill residue still on the floor surface.
  7. Feel the hurt felt in the checkbook for the costly disposal of this hazardous waste.

What about when you have to cleanup a
20 gallon or a 200 gallon spill - then what?
