scanned with a Photo Ionization Detector to see if the sample contains petroleum produces like gas or oil or chlorinated solvents like carbon Tetra Chloride. Recently we performed a Oil tank sweep in Monmouth county and the client decided to pay the additional fee to have the soil borings completed. No oil tank was found but a Chlorinated Solvent plume was found 2 feet from the structure. If the buyer purchased the property without proper NJDEP Supervised remediation there may have been a Vapor Intrusion Problem that could have caused the new occupants to have health and other respiratory problems. Ground Penetrating Radar shows a screen image of soil disturbances, a Environmental Geotechnical expert can determine what each of the images found on screen represent. Many home inspector provide oil tank sweep services but very have a Environmental Scientist or Environmental Expert credentials to backup there readings and oil tanks or environmental issues are often missed. Again just because find a oil tank does mean the property is not contaminated with heating oil..
