Vacuum Excavation, or also known as suction excavation has quickly become the go-to method for uncovering services, pipes and cables for the construction, civil engineering and utility industries. As an economical and safer approach to digging, vacuum excavation provides several safety benefits as opposed to the traditional methods of manual digging or mechanical excavation.
What is Vacuum Excavation?
Vacuum excavation is used by our operators to excavate the ground through the use of high-powered excavator truck systems. This process significantly reduces the risk of loss of property, as the risk of injury and the risk of service strikes. Our high-powered vacuum excavator quickly excavates deep and precisely controlled holes to uncover buried utilities. Vacuum excavation will loosen the soil with a high-pressured air lance and will proceed to vacuum away any loose material.
What are the safety benefits?
