Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Reviewed Dry Cleaning - Spill and Leak Prevention Options

Options below have reviewed by pollution prevention specialists. They are commonly recommended and implemented for facilities.

Check Hoses
Check hoses, couplings, pumps, valves and gaskets frequently in order to detect leaks. Make repairs promptly.
Material Handling
Take special care when handling your cleaning materials to prevent spills. You'll avoid costly clean up.
Know your solvent needs
Know how much solvent your machine normally uses. If solvent use suddenly increases, find out why. Not knowing the answer may be costly (machine repairs, hazardous waste clean up).
Cover your containers
Keep all containers covered to prevent evaporation and spillage.
Secondary Containment
Provide secondary containment in areas where solvents are stored. Small leaks will not become more costly spills.
