If you are in the market to purchase or sell a home, it is a
good idea to have an oil tank sweep conducted. Even if
the home is a newer one, it may have been built on a
location that has an underground storage tank(UST).
Many gas-heated homes were once heated with oil and
may still have an unknown UST buried on the property. It
is important for any homebuyer to make sure they are not
taking possession of a contaminated property. Mostly
because the abandoned tank may have leaked any may
have contaminated the soil, making clean up very costly.
