Home Heating Oil Tank Removal Solutions

Whether your home has a heating oil tank you no longer intend to use, or you are simply replacing your tank with a new one, you may be asking “How do I get rid of an old oil tank?”

While carrying out any renovation is likely to result in some debris and unwanted appliances, most are easier to remove than an old oil tank. After all, there are some serious environmental concerns surrounding the safe removal and disposal of oil tanks, and nobody wants to worry about oil accidentally leaking into the local groundwater or soil.

Removing an oil tank is no mean feat and disposing of it safely is even more difficult. Therefore, you may be wondering who takes the old oil tanks. The obvious solution is to hire a professional company, such as All American Environmental, that can do the job properly and to the appropriate safety standards.


Why Remove an Old Oil Tank?

Some people are worried about the cost to remove a heating oil tank, so they leave the old tank on their property. However, not only is this potentially hazardous because of accidental leaks and spills, but it also takes up a lot of space that could be put to better use. Homeowners whose old oil tanks cause a spill in their local area, even if the leak was accidental, face high cleanup bills. These would be considerably higher than the cost to remove the tank from your basement


How Is an Oil Tank Removed from A Property?

For a professional company, removing an old oil tank isn’t as hard as it seems. It usually takes just a couple hours. And, when it is carried out by a highly qualified contractor, there will be no chance of any spillages. A company, such as All American Environmental, will undertake the entire job of removing the oil tank. This includes removing the heating oil, breaking up of the tank, removing and disposing of oil sludge, and removing vent and oil fill pipes. Soil sampling may also be necessary to show no contamination has occurred.
