-- Many commercial and residential property buyers have oil tank sweeps performed prior to purchase. However, if the consultant uses a metal detector, the buyer is only getting 25 % of the Job. A metal detector can not identify buried objects below concrete, wood or asphalt and is limited to about 2 feet below the surface. Ground Penetrating Radar is highly sensitive and can identify buried objects down to 18 feet and can see through Concrete, Asphalt, Wood and Plastic. Plastic piping, construction debris , septic tanks, car parts along with ground disturbances and sink holes can be identified. Having the ability to sense various materials can identify buried objects that would be missed with a metal detector. With over 22 years Experience Environmental Systems can locate just about. any type of object underground. Recently Environmental Systems found a 75 year old freezer covered in Asbestos. The soil on the surface above the refrigerator was contaminated with Asbestos. Don't settle for home inspector with a metal detector, hire a licensed environmental firm that can also perform soil and ground water sampling if needed to determine if the site is contaminated. Environmental Systems has over 20 years experience performing Environmental Phase I Assessments for buyers of commercial property.
