The Dangers Associated With Unskilled Removal of Underground Oil Tanks in Northern Virginia

Without a doubt petroleum is a vital product to the residents of Northern Virginia and across the country. The everyday uses and applications are essential to life as we know it, but when an underground oil tank is removed, if done incorrectly, the environment and the surrounding residents stand to lose the way of life they are used to.

Perhaps one of the most useful substances found in the ecosystem, oil has many uses and many of those have health problems associated with them. When an underground oil tank is disturbed and not removed correctly, the possible dangers may overshadow the benefits in some circumstances.

If not handled by trained oil tank removal professionals, excess oil may be spilled onto the ground surface. When skin is exposed to petroleum, in this case the oil, it can lead to skin infections at first which can escalate with excessive contact. The use of specialized equipment by oil tank removal experts allows efficient removal, with risk to themselves, the property owners and neighbors as well.

Oil exposure is not only a danger for human health, it also can cause insurmountable damage to the environment and the area surrounding the oil tank. Oil spills near bodies of water can lead to the worst environmental damage possible. Whether the water source is a stream, river, lake, pond or even simply the ground water near the oil tank, introducing these dangerous chemicals into the water supply is highly dangerous and has lasting ramifications.
