Approximately 85% of cleaners use perchloroethylene, perc, as their primary solvent. Perc can enter the ground in liquid form through spills, leaky pipes, leaky tanks, machine leaks, and from improperly handled waste.
ECG conducts environmental investigations of dry cleaning facilities. In the event contamination is found, ECG can provide remediation services. Remediation can now be accomplished with little disruption of a site. This “in-situ” remediation is commonly done and there is no removal of the soil or groundwater. In some cases, the Illinois Drycleaner Environmental Response Trust Fund can provide financial resources to pay for the cleanup of spills and/or leaks from drycleaning establishments.
