Vacuum Excavation

Vacuum Excavation is Your Safe, Non Destructive, Damage Prevention Option when excavating in and around utilities.

Prevent Damages

You can prevent utility damage by using this non destructive method of excavation.

A high-powered vacuum insertion is made to remove dirt into the vehicles storage tank. The underground utilities are safely exposed without damage to the protective coatings of many pipes and cables.

Traditional methods of mechanical excavation have the potential to damage utilities and disrupt essential services and cannot compare to the vacuum extraction method.

The safe, non destructive method means damage to utilities is prevented and saves innumerable costs associated with a utility damage including downtime, rework, repairs, personal injury and public damages including inconvenience.
