Tullytown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2015 -- Underground heating oil tanks raise a variety of concerns for homeowners and home buyers. The most common and detrimental issues stem from the oil leaking and contaminating the soil and groundwater, and the costs and risks associated with testing, removing and cleaning up the area. Like all equipment, underground tanks have a limited lifespan and eventually have to be repaired or replaced. For instance, since many home heating oil tanks are made of steel, they are in danger of rusting through the tank shell or the welded seams. One of the most obvious warning signs for a leaking tank is if there is an unexplainable increase in a home's heating oil usage. Bills that have increased drastically from the year before should be met with intense speculation and should be investigated immediately. Easing homeowner concerns, Professional Tank & Environmental announces their underground oil tank removal services in Montgomery County.
Professional Tank & Environmental's removal services include the insurance that all of the petroleum is disposed of in accordance with the PA Department of Environmental Protection's (PADEP) regulations. In addition, the company will dispose of the tank at a licensed salvage facility and ensure that the excavated area is backfilled with topsoil. They even cover the entire access path to the excavation area with plywood to protect homeowners' lawns, sidewalks, driveways and other landscaping.
The company also offers soil remediation services if the unit was leaking. Their technicians will determine the severity of the leak and provide a list of options to get the property up to code. Once the underground tank removal services in Montgomery County are complete, Professional Tank & Environmental will level the ground and prepare the area for a new tank. The company will make sure the new tank is backfilled while under pressure to ensure no fittings or connections were broken during installation. Soil is then placed on top of the tank and graded for settlement.
