How long has it been since you had a petroleum tank inspection performed on your Loudoun county, VA property? If that question has you scratching your head trying to remember the date, it’s probably safe to assume that it’s time and call to schedule one right away. We recommend having your tank inspected on an annual basis to ensure that there are no leaks.
Leaks are bad news for two reasons. First, there’s the simple economic fact that it’s expensive to fill your tank and you don’t want your hard-earned money leaking out of the tank rather than keeping your family warm this winter.
Second, and even more troubling is the fact that if your tank is leaking then you’ve got fuel leaching into your soil, which is an environmental hazard that poses a very real health risk to you and your family.
As the top rated company in the industry in this area, we perform scores of petroleum tank inspection in Loudoun county, VA each year and would be honored to add you to our growing family of satisfied customers to give you and your family greater peace of mind.
Be aware that while many fuel storage tanks are aboveground, a significant percentage of them are buried. If you’ve recently purchased an older home and there’s no visible fuel storage tank, it could be the case that it’s simply underground and you’re not aware of it.
We’ll be happy to perform an underground storage tank survey for you, free of charge. Then, if we find a tank, we’ll be happy to check it for you for a modest additional fee.
Once we’ve completed our petroleum tank inspection on your Loudoun county, VA property, one of two things will be true. We’ll either find that the tank is in good working order, or a problem will be revealed. If the tank proves to be fine, we recommend the following as next steps:
1) Allow us to put you on an inspection schedule so your future tank inspections are automatic and you don’t have to think about it.
2) Allow us to install a small monitoring pipe beside your tank
3) Check your fuel filters for water twice a year
4) Be sure you keep your fuel tank topped off all year round to reduce the risk of condensation
5) Keep careful track of your fuel purchases and consumption and watch for signs of increased fuel consumption
6) And contact us right away in the event that you smell petroleum odors
If your tank is leaking, you’ll need to report it to the DEQ within twenty-four hours. For the rest, just contract with us and we’ll take care of everything from removing the old tank, restoring your property to the way it was before our work began and representing you with state agencies until your case is closed. One call to our office and we’ll be there. We’ve got you covered.
