Underground Oil Tank Removal Process in Montgomery County, Maryland
The process for underground oil tank removal in Montgomery County, Maryland is going to be somewhat more than just having someone dig up a hole and pull the oil tank out of the ground for you. It may sound easy but there is a lot more to it, especially when you want to do it the correct way per federal/state standards and according to the best of safety standards. The contractor, such as Next Day Demolition in Montgomery County, Maryland is first going to have to the access whether or not the oil tank is completely empty and if it is leaking or not. In order to complete this step, a piece of equipment called the ground penetrating radar (GPR) is going to be used.

Once we complete the preliminary testing process, the fuel tank may then have to be professionally cleaned in order to remove all of the residual oil that is in it. An excavator will then be used in order to carefully remove earth that is above the oil tank.
