We offer 24 hour emergency spill response services utilizing highly trained and professional HAZMAT teams with the latest in equipment and supplies.
Our spill teams are experienced in a wide variety of incidents utilizing all levels of protective equipment.
Our first priority is always the safety of the public and all personnel involved in the incident.
At VLS, we understand that even with a high level of training, a spill team must have the proper tools and equipment to work efficiently and safely. From air monitoring devices to pH meters to high-angle rope systems to intrinsically safe cell phones, our teams have the tools that they need to handle any incident.
Our inventory of PPE includes all levels of protective suits, boots, gloves, and a range of respiratory protection equipment from APR’s to SCBA’s to inline air systems.
We maintain a warehouse fully stocked with skirted booms, sorbent pads and booms, oil dry, skimmers, confined space entry and rescue equipment, ventilation devices and much more.
Perhaps most importantly, at VLS we understand that protecting the environment and serving the customer is really the same thing. When you excel at the former you accomplish the latter.
Because of our extensive construction background we own a wide array of excavation equipment including:

Skid-steer loaders and Rubber tire loaders
Our heavy equipment inventory includes:
Vacuum trucks and tankers
Rolloff trucks, rolloff boxes, and rolloff vacuum boxes
Hydroblasters and Jetters up to 40,000psi
From the cleaning of a small sump to a complicated remediation project, we have the experience, personnel and equipment to solve your industrial cleaning problems.
Our Hydroblasters range from smaller 5,000 psi units for pressure washing and decontamination to ultra-high pressure units that can generate up to 40,000 pounds of pressure for surface preparation or removal of extremely hard materials. We also utilize Dry Ice Blasting when waterblasting is not a practical option, for example, in the cleaning of a large printing press or industrial oven racks.
Proper removal of mold is a detailed process that if not done correctly can continue to cause permanent damage and illness. We perform thorough indoor air quality tests and use tried and tested structural drying techniques. Quite often moldy areas of a structure will need to be removed, and we offer total or selective demolition services along with proper disposal of recovered waste.
Asbestos and lead paint can be extremely hazardous if not monitored or handled properly. We offer select or total demolition and emergency spill cleanup services to safely remove and dispose of these dangerous materials.
We use a mobile lab and hazmat services to expedite the testing and removal of dangerous materials. We handle all aspects of the disposal process, including permits, profiles, manifests, packaging, transportation, and final disposal.
