When a homeowner faces a heating oil spill it quickly comes to bear that the homeowner is all alone in the subsequent battle with the oil in the home. A frantic homeowner is calling environment agencies, the dep officials for some guidance on how to handle this beast.

Here are some tips to users who need to wash their clothes/furniture drapes using VaporRemed:
- Apply a mild spray over the affected area on the clothes or fabric and allow it to dry for 30 minutes or till the smell of oil is gone and then machine wash the clothes to remove the oil.
- Apply a mist over the furniture draperies and dry till the smell is gone and then wash or dry clean the material.
We recently visited a home in Sayreville, NJ that had oil spilled over its property due to Super storm Sandy to remediate oil fumes in their property.
