Information & Compliance

The Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators prohibits the accumulation of water and oil on pit floors. Section 8.6.4.7.4. We also carry CC (Certificate of Competency).

CHAPTER 62-740 PETROLEUM CONTACT WATER
ASME A17.1/CSA B44 Handbook

Equipment

TG Oil Services uses the latest technology in the market to provide a clean and safe environment. HEPA Certified Pulse-Bac vacuums and dust extractors are equipments that we use because they are highly effective and minimize dust in the area while working. Saline water testers are also used to identify if the water in the elevator pit is from the ocean or a broken pipe or sprinkler lines.

 

Unseen Damages

Elevators are especially susceptible to flooding given that the elevator pits are usually one of the lowest points in a building and therefore water will pool there. Whether the flooding is caused by a natural disaster, by a broken pipe somewhere in the building or by a drain back-up, more than likely the elevators in the building will be impacted in some manner.

When liquid damages the elevator system, this can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair.
