Stormin’ the Spill

You know what a wild winter it’s been, with storms so severe they toppled trees onto cars and buildings, flooded roadways, and caused many businesses to close for repairs — which can spell its own kind of disaster, as many small businesses never recover once they’re forced to close. According to FEMA, 90% of smaller companies go out of business after a disaster, unless they’re able to resume operations within five days. Ouch.

While Impact Absorbents isn’t equipped to tackle a “spill” of this scope, we are experts on a smaller scale. Specifically: business spills. The average spill involving oil, for instance, takes approximately twenty minutes to clean up. An employee must:

  • Identify the spill type
  • Set out warning cones
  • Locate the mop and bucket
  • Remove any broken glass or plastic
  • Scoop up the bulk
  • Repeatedly wring and mop the spill
  • Replace the bucket in its storage area.

It sounds exhausting.

By contrast, XSORB Plus Super Absorbent & Encapsulator takes just minutes from spill identification to a clean, dry floor. And it means your entire business stays open for business, rather than closing off areas that are being cleaned.

XSORB Plus Super Absorbent instantly contains and absorbs liquids on contact, turning difficult liquid waste into solid waste for easier disposal. It absorbs tough spills such as motor oil, grease, bleach, cooking oil and syrup, as well as industrial spills including emulsified oils, biologically hazardous waste, toxic wastewater, and hazardous materials.

XSORB Plus is a boon for grocery and chain stores, industrial, commercial, and home applications, including oil refineries, hazmat response teams, and facilities with hazardous or toxic chemicals. XSORB Plus:

  • Cuts disposal costs by producing less weight and bulk than other absorbents
  • Leaves surfaces spotless
  • Is approved for landfill disposal
  • Is non-leaching
  • Absorbs up to 14 times its weight
