We have all made mistakes, seemingly out of a lack of knowledge and almost ignorance on our part. You can say that a common mistake around the 30s would be the installation of oil tanks around commercial and residential properties. It was done initially for the sake of convenience since it was a steady supply of oil. However, what people back then did not realize or did not want to admit was that this could potentially be very dangerous.
These oil tanks are situated underground and if for any reason the tank itself gets ruptured or damage, the oil can end up seeping into the soil and underground water, leading to damage to both our health and the environment. So, a lot of homeowners do not want to risk any sort of damage which is why they are getting their homes inspected to prevent the possible worse-case scenario that can occur in this situation. Now there are a lot of steps involved in this process, and as long as you have a good Garden State oil tank removal company on your side, they will take care of most of the steps.
This includes filling all the necessary paperwork, getting a permit for the NJ tank removal, talk to the utility company and get everything sorted before starting the actual job searching, excavating, cleaning, inspecting and ultimately removing the oil tank. If you do happen to have holes in your oil tank, then your oil tank removal company will have to start a case number and report the incidence to the NJDEP so that soil samples and other tests are conducted. They will be there the entire process till they obtain the No Further Action (NFA) letter which will indicate that your property has been tested and cleared.
