`How Our Soil Testing Services Can Save You Money, Time, & Pain

Soil testing is usually done before setting the footings of a new building. But it is also recommended to conduct soil testing for a property that you want to purchase. Soil testing is a critical procedure before buying a property or pre-construction to avoid facing numerous problems later on.


Above ground or buried oil tanks wear and tear over time causing health and environmental problems. Furthermore, if the soil is found to be contaminated, it might not be good to support a foundation.

Sources of soil contamination

Although leaking oil tanks are often the key source of soil contamination, the soil may be contaminated in different ways:


  • Pollution from nearby industrial or manufacturing facilities
  • Improper disposal of waste products
  • Chemicals dumped from residential and commercial infrastructure such as oil spills, pesticides, and herbicides from vehicles, oil tanks, and machinery.


When you have Washington D.C.’s best soil testing contractors at your side, you won’t have to worry about costly future problems or mistakes. Soil testing can determine how strong or weak the soil is contaminated. 


Soil testing contractors like Pro Tank Removal also test for toxins like copper, arsenic, and lead that could be hazardous to the whole community. The soil is used not just for building structures, but also for growing plants. Once we have detected soil contamination, we will be able to prevent plants from getting poisoned.
