Underground heating oil tanks raise a variety of concerns for homeowners and home buyers. The most common and detrimental issues stem from the oil leaking and contaminating the soil and groundwater, and the costs and risks associated with testing, removing and cleaning up the area. Like all equipment, underground tanks have a limited lifespan and eventually have to be repaired or replaced. For instance, since many home heating oil tanks are made of steel, they are in danger of rusting through the tank shell or the welded seams. One of the most obvious warning signs for a leaking tank is if there is an unexplainable increase in a home's heating oil usage. Bills that have increased drastically from the year before should be met with intense speculation and should be investigated immediately. Easing homeowner concerns, Professional Tank & Environmental announces their underground oil tank removal services in Montgomery County.

This encourages the growth of bacteria and molds responsible for many cases of asthma as well as a number of allergic reactions. It also fosters the spread of contagions. The vast majority of this moisture and mold is the result of vented, dirt crawlspaces - crawlspaces that are the underlying cause of so many problems that experts in the housing industry call them a "housing epidemic."
