Re: Oil tank sweep

In regard to the comment ?if the tank is buried in front of the property and that area is paved, what is the big deal??. The big deal is the steel tank will eventually become paper thin due to corrosion and collapse leaving a very large sink hole. Also, many tanks were abandoned with oil still in the tank and once that oil leaves the tank, which it will, remediation of the property will be required by the State.

It is as important as having a home inspection performed to have a oil tank sweep done of the property being purchased. The reason is any removal or clean-up cost will be borne by the seller. Why risk the potential exposure of having to pay possibly thousands of dollars by not having a sweep performed?

Always make sure you hire a professional company that has been in business at least 3 years doing searches and shows proof of ?errors and omission? liability insurance. At ATS Environmental, we have been doing oil tank searches since 1995 and have literally found thousands of tanks.

In our experience, many homeowners purchased the house and never knew there was an underground tank. In some cases, we found some people even camouflaged the tank area. The report issued from a tank sweep where no tank was found, should be kept with your important papers because this is your insurance policy against a missed tank by the company that did the tank scan.
