Tullytown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- On average, homeowners can expect to get 10 to 15 years from their underground oil tank before they need to consider having it replaced. Typically, when a unit is around the 20-year mark, it is almost certain it will begin to experience issues, such as leaking. Helping residents protect their property from harmful leaks, Professional Tank & Environmental is now offering oil tank replacement services to Montgomery County. Replacing the storage unit every decade or so is the best way for clients to avoid the expense of having their soil remediated.
Since there are limited ways to accurately detect a leak, homeowners are urged to err on the side of caution to prevent what should be a simple job from turning into a major project. The longer a tank spends underground, the more exposure it has to moisture that will eventually lead to the unit rusting away. With the threat of erosion exponentially increasing every year, it is important to consider replacing the unit every ten years.
Professional Tank & Environmental, a leading name in oil tank removal services in Montgomery County, will handle every step of the replacement process, from draining the oil to grading the soil. They will remove all of the petroleum prior to excavating the tank to ensure the ground and surrounding area is not contaminated. Next, they will remove and dispose of the unit at a licensed facility. Once the area has been leveled and prepared for the new tank, they will drop it in and pressure test it to ensure there are no leaks. After testing it, they will backfill it and carefully bury it.
As it is more cost effective to replace a tank ahead of schedule than it is to try to get every cent out of the unit, homeowners should not tread lightly around the subject. Those interested in having their oil tank replaced can schedule an appointment with Professional Tank & Environmental by visiting their website or calling 215-720-1964 today.
