Tank Sweep (GPR) Inspections | Bergen County NJ
Aurora Home Inspections offers both home and commercial property owners the very necessary Buried Tank Sweep and/or Oil Tank Sweep inspection option. We are based in the Township of Washington, and we conduct these inspections throughout Bergen County and the surrounding areas of NJ and NY. We offer the leading edge in GPR or Ground Penetrating Radar machinery and technology, so these tests we provide are also often referred to as Ground Penetrating Radar Inspections. It’s important because many tank sweep inspectors use basic tools; with our GPR equipment, we can offer a much deeper, more reliable tank sweep with advantaged GPR testing technology.
Our Tank Sweep testing service can be added to a total Home Inspection, or it can be independent of all other inspection services. Buried Tank Sweeps are recommended in older homes where there was or will be a conversion from oil to gas heat. The oil tank is usually buried under a front or side lawn and is susceptible to rust and erosion over time. This can result in the release of oil into the ground surrounding your home. The upshot of this can be an environmental hazard that comes with large cleanup costs. Most home buyers will ask for a buried oil tank to be removed.
Locating Buried Oil Tanks in NJ | Tank Sweep Inspection
During a regular home inspection, our inspector looks for evidence of an obsolete oil heating system. A tank sweep with ground penetrating radar (GPR) inspection is then used to locate any buried oil tanks. The area is then marked for removal at the discretion of the present homeowner or the purchaser. It is in the best interest of a property owner to have a Tank Sweep/Oil Tank Inspection and/or Ground penetrating radar inspection. Aurora Home Inspections is always happy to discuss these services in detail so, please do not hesitate to call or write with any questions you may have!.
