Oil Spill Lisburn

We received an emergency callout late one Friday night, when a homeowner noticed staining on brickwork of his garage and oil smells surrounding his oil boiler inside the garage. SSS Alleviate immediately attended the site to investigate this oil spill in Lisburn. 

We discovered an issue with the flexible oil hose at the boiler. This piece of pipework had failed and was leaking oil inside the garage saturating the concrete and brickwork in close proximity to the boiler resulting in a visual stain.

We acted fast to isolate the supply at the tank and replaced the flexible oil hose. We then investigated the potential impact to human health inside the dwelling and whether any other sensitive receptors had been impacted. Fortunately there were no odours inside the dwelling despite the boiler being a short distance away. The potential damage from the oil leak was investigated, but fortunately damage was limited on this occasion. It is strongly recommended that you change your flexible hoses each year during your annual service as these are a common source of oil loss. 

If you have noticed an urgent oil heating issue such as a leaking oil tank or boiler, we urge you to contact us immediately or visit our page on oil leak response.
