Croydon, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/11/2019 -- Like tank installation, tank removal in NJ, or anywhere for that matter, should not be attempted by amateurs. Instead, jobs like these should be left to highly trained and experienced professionals, like the ones here at Superior Tank & Energy.

Removing an underground oil tank is no easy task, but the experts at Superior Tank & Energy approach each job with the confidence that only comes with expertise.

The first time they visit a home or business, the objective is to assess the property to determine the safest way to remove the tank. Then, the company handles all the paperwork pertaining to permits, if such documents are required by the municipality, and also arranges to have the underground utilities marked.

Once all this preparation is taken care of, it's time to schedule a removal date. When that day comes, the first step is to pump out the tank to empty it completely, then expose the top, cut it open, and clean the interior.

Superior Tank & Energy will cover the property's lawn with plywood to protect it from potential damage caused by the heavy construction equipment involved.

Even when it's time for the removal, the job is far from finished. To determine whether the tank was leaking, soil samples are taken; these samples can also be used to test for contaminants.
Then they backfill and top off the excavation with fresh topsoil.

Additional services after the removal include a closure report and clean-up services if the ground contamination from a leaking tank needs cleaning.
