RK HydroVac, Inc. is a specialized service company dedicated to providing an environment conducive to continuous satisfaction and improvement for our customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders.

In addition to RK providing a full line of roof preparation services, we are also experienced in industrial and commercial vacuuming such as plant cleaning and water filtration systems.  Learn more about us »


Does RK sell vacuum equipment or parts?

We are in the service business, not the business of selling. In fact, even when we remove gravel from a site, we give it away for reuse rather than selling it to a wholesaler.

What other training, certifications, or memberships do you have?

In addition to being a drug free workplace, we ensure safety by maintaining OSHA 30HR as well as Confined Space safety training. Of course, we are also Bonded and Insured as well.
