Summer's on its way: How to control dust and odour on your site

Summer is almost here, and for many of us that signals barbeques, beaches and plenty of sun. But for some business owners the warm months can be a real headache. Sites such as sewage treatment works, quarries and landfills present new challenges as the seasons change, with the summer heat being a particular problem.

On sites where offensive odours are created – composting plants, for instance – long, hot days intensify the foul smells which can make life very unpleasant for staff, neighbouring visitors and nearby residents alike. When subjected to malodour, homeowners are unable to enjoy simple pleasures such as spending time in their garden or hanging washing outside, thereby reducing their quality of life.

A warm, dry summer day and an application that creates dust is a recipe for a significant increase in airborne particles. Uncontrolled dust creates many problems, including placing staff at health risk and incurring complaints from nearby businesses and homes.

Such problems could lead to investigation by local authorities, and sites which do not comply with relevant legislation may face possible closure. So what’s the best course of action?

Look no further than the Gibbons mobile atomiser.

The mobile atomiser is a portable unit that distributes a fine mist to effectively suppress dust and odour. For businesses under pressure to produce an immediate solution, the mobile atomiser is available for hire now, with a range of packages to choose from. Alternatively, those looking for a long-term dust and odour control measure can purchase the unit outright. The Gibbons mobile atomiser comes complete with its own power and water supply (ideal for sites with no mains services) and can handle any terrain.
