New Jersey's Soil Testing Company
What is Soil Sampling?
If you have an active or decommissioned underground fuel tank on your residential property, it’s essential that you have it removed. The longer an oil tank remains buried, the more likely it will corrode and allow oil to seep into the ground, posing severe threats to the environment. If you are planning to sell your home, attorneys and realtors will advise potential buyers not to purchase a home that has an underground oil tank because of the legal liabilities it poses. Banks typically don’t give mortgages to buyers who plan to buy a home with an oil tank buried in its yard, even if it has been filled with sand or foam. The only way to accurately assess whether your underground tank has leaked oil is to have a team of professionals remove the tank and sample the soil. An underground oil tank can be very concerning to homeowners, and it isn’t easy to know who to turn to for trustworthy guidance. The soil sampling experts from Tank Solutions are here to help! We’ll provide you with straightforward answers to your questions and honest, transparent pricing for top-quality underground oil tank removal, soil sampling, and related services.
Expert Soil Investigation Services
Don’t let the discovery of an underground oil tank during a home inspection jeopardize your house sale closing date! With a highly qualified and experienced team of engineers and soil scientists, strong relationships with township officials, and an excellent reputation with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), Tank Solutions can help you get to the closing table on time:
- Skillful Underground Tank Excavation
We’ll quickly and carefully excavate your underground oil tank and arrange for the local building inspector to be on-site to inspect it before we remove it from the ground and haul it away.
- Accurate Soil Sampling
If the tank fails inspection, one of our on-staff Subsurface Evaluators will carefully take soil samples and check them with a PID meter until finding soil that is oil-free. Once the PID meter identifies the certified clean zone, we’ll preserve that area and remove the contaminated soil. The Subsurface Evaluator will take soil samples from the clean zone to a lab for testing.
- Same-Day Site Cleanup
We’ll backfill the hole left by the underground tank with certified clean soil from the quarry and leave your property reasonably neat and clean.
- Fast Turnaround
Once favorable lab results are received, our on-staff Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) will write a report for the NJDEP and work with officials to get you a No Further Action (NFA) letter within 14 days of soil remediation so that your homebuyers can get their mortgage from the bank.
