With views of the woods, towering waterfalls in many parks, and the sweet scent of ocean air, it’s hard to imagine that there could be something unpleasant lurking beneath the ground of many West Vancouver properties. For many years, oil was a popular way of heating homes, and underground tanks were a preferred way to store this fuel. Now, we have transitioned toward green energy sources, and oil tanks have largely fallen out of fashion, if not been completely forgotten.
If you are unsure whether or not your property has an oil tank, you should find a team to serve you with oil tank detection in West Vancouver.
