Traditional excavation has been a method of moving soil from an area for many years and can be extremely beneficial to both the building site owner, and those working in the area. However, vacuum excavation has gained increasing traction amongst users, for several reasons. If you are interested in finding more about how vacuum excavation in Gladstone can make a big difference to your site, Rayment Excavations can explain why this is a great alternative.

Environmentally Friendly

If you want to make sure that you are protecting the site that you are digging, as most construction projects must these days, then traditional excavation poses a problem. Conventional machinery can tear up a site and cause serious destruction to the surrounding environment. On the other hand, vacuum excavation is much more protective of the environment.

Better penetration

When you use conventional digging, you may have to work with a lot of different tools in order to penetrate the different types of soil. For example, your larger diggers may not work with more delicate soils or they may become stuck when digging with clay. Vacuum excavation allows you to get deeper into the soil with less effort, so you can have the job done in less time when you speak to Rayment Excavations.

Better with utilities

When you use heavier traditional digging machines, you are taking the risk that they will penetrate utility sites such as electricity cables or plumbing. You could face serious fines and even lawsuits if you do not take care to avoid these utility cables, and that often means using vacuum excavation.

Less manpower

When compared to traditional digging, you will need less manpower on the job when you get help from Rayment Excavations. This can speed up the amount of time required to clear the area of soil, and also free up your teams to do other things.

Better dust removal

Traditional excavation exposes workers to a great deal of dust and dirt, which can pose a risk to their health. Vacuum excavation, on the other hand, is much more likely to keep dust and debris within the tank, away from your site and allowing better air.
