The global COVID-19 pandemic has put hygiene and cleanliness into the spotlight more than ever before. EnviroServ, a proudly South African company with more than 40 years’ experience in the waste management industry, offers full sanitation services which follow World Health Organization and the US Centres for Disease Control COVID-19 protocols relating to the work methods and materials used for to clean surfaces.

DISPOSAL OF CONTAMINATED AND NON-CONTAMINATED COVID-19 PPE, SANITATION OF FACILITIES
With the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping the globe, there is a need for safe waste disposal for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – masks, gloves or clothing – which is either contaminated or simply used to enforce social distancing protocols. EnviroServ, with more than 40 years’ experience in handling safe and compliant waste disposal, can handle both of these waste streams. We also offer sanitisation services with trained hazmat personnel to sterilise facilities.
Whether you need a sump de-sludged or a permanent on-site industrial cleaning service, this specialised business unit of EnviroServ provides industrial cleaning services to both large and small clients. Our technicians are qualified in closed tank entry, fire-fighting and first aid. We draw up comprehensive Health and Safety Plans including risk assessments for all proposed activities, which are signed off before any work commences.
Tank cleaning is highly specialised as it often means working in confined spaces. EnviroServ offers assistance both on projects done on a planned basis with significant up-front planning and coordination with the client, and in reaction to unplanned breakdown emergencies.
Wash bays, tanks, bund areas, dams and ponds can silt up over time and require desludging. Industrial vacuuming is the large-scale removal of waste sludges and liquids that are transferred for further processing or disposal. Using our fleet of vacuum units and pumps, EnviroServ removes the sludge or liquids so that the vessel can be put back into use. The company’s suite of industrial vacuuming equipment enables us to tackle jobs both big and small in a cost-effective manner.

EnviroServ has extensive experience in emptying and cleaning dams and ponds; whether the contents are liquid or sludge, as well as whether the liner system needs to be removed or not.
