Tier 1 Scan.  This scan is done by using a TW6 M-Scope Metal Detector. It is used to scan your yard and see if anything can be detected. If the scan comes back clean, there is a good chance you can get a Letter of Compliance. This letter might be necessary when you try to sell your home or try to get a mortgage on your home.

Tier 2 Scan. However, if you think there might be a tank under the concrete or stonework on your property, then the crew will do a tier 2 scan and that involves using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scanning. This is a non-intrusive scan that will make sure if you have no oil tank to worry about.
