When purchasing a home, there are so many individual elements moving in tandem. There are so many things that need to be inspected throughout a new property that it’s no surprise that home buyers don’t usually put too much time or consideration into what may be buried beneath the property.
If you’re in the process of selling or purchasing your home, you may be completely unaware as to whether or not there’s an oil tank hidden within your property. If your underground oil tank corrodes and leaks into your property (and possibly adjacent properties as well), being unaware of the buried tank’s existence will not get you off the hook for paying for the damage, which can easily become thousands of dollars.
If you’re planning on purchasing a new home, you should certainly have an oil tank scan performed prior to closing on the house. Similarly, if you’re selling your current residence and you’re not sure if there’s a buried oil tank in your yard, you should have an oil tank sweep performed.
An oil tank sweep is undeniably easier than putting it off until you’re stuck covering the cleanup costs of a tank leak. When the team at Mikula Contracting, Inc. scans for an oil tank, if we find one, we’ll certainly handle the tank removal process, meaning you won’t need to worry about it.
