Due Diligence Services
EarthNet personnel are experienced in completing environmental due diligence activities, including Phase I and II ESAs and Compliance Audits at sites ranging from undeveloped properties, retail and commercial facilities to large industrial sites. These services have been provided for property transactions, due diligence for corporate acquisitions, and for lending institution foreclosures. We dedicate ourselves to quality, timeliness, and ensuring that our environmental due diligence efforts are aligned with the business needs of our clients.
Phase I ESAs
Determine previous and current property use and its relation to potential environmental impacts and the presence and extent of contamination is critical when considering real-estate transactions. Our knowledge and expertise in investigating, remediating, and closing contaminated sites provides us with a broader understanding of potential environmental impacts and their associated cost and impact to a property transaction while conducting ESA services.
Phase II ESAs
When a recognized environmental conditions are discovered during a Phase I ESA or there may be potential for soil and or ground water contamination, our personnel can assist to evaluate the potential contamination by performing Phase II Environmental Testing. The purpose of a Phase II ESA is to determine the presence, or absence of, petroleum products or hazardous waste in the subsurface of the site. Our staff of geologists and environmental scientists possess expertise in Phase II ESA subsurface investigation in a variety of complex geologic settings throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Environmental Compliance Audits
EarthNet staff has the experience necessary to conduct Environmental Compliance Audits, prepare regulatory permits, and to prepare a variety of spill plans including Spill Prevention, Control and Counter Measures (SPCC) plans, Storm water Pollution and Prevention Plans (SWPP). Our professionals save you time and money, and help to ensure your facility is in compliance with applicable regulations.
EarthNet has provided site investigation and assessment services for regulatory agencies throughout Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic Region. We provide innovative, cost-effective, and regulatory-accepted investigations tailored to our clients’ needs. Our team of geologists, chemists, and environmental scientists provides a comprehensive range of services helping with the characterization and assessment of contaminants in soil, bedrock, groundwater, surface water, and indoor air. We are experienced in all major drilling and assessment techniques in assessing petroleum hydrocarbons, other contaminants and understanding its transport in the subsurface. Our comprehensive risk assessments gauge and determine present and potential risks to human health and the environment enabling our clients to make the best environmentally conscious decisions regarding their needs.
Our groundwater monitoring programs are often implemented as compliance monitoring events at sites requiring active remediation or monitored natural attenuation. All monitoring is completed in accordance with all appropriate collection, preservation, handling, and chain-of-custody procedures.
EarthNet has developed and implemented remedial actions for a wide range of facilities and subsurface contaminants throughout Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic region. We pride ourselves on in-house corrective action design and implementation, including complete turnkey service, insuring our client’s cost effective and time efficient remediation strategies.
Our expertise in soil and groundwater remediation utilizing dual phase extraction (DPE), air sparging, soil vapor extraction (SVE), in-situ bioremediation, surfactant flushing and engineering controls have enabled our clients to achieve regulatory closure at many contaminated sites.
EarthNet owns and operates a mobile trailer mounted DPE remediation system, which we are capable of mobilizing within 24 hours. The dual-phase treatment system consists of the following primary components:
- 10 HP, 3 phase, 230/460V rotary claw pump
- 90-gallon moisture separator
- 1.5 HP 230/460V 3 phase progressive cavity transfer pump
- 30-gallon per minute oil water separator
- 1 HP 230/460V 3 phase transfer pump
- 55-gallon single wall product drum
- Low profile air stripper
- 3 HP 230/460V, 3 phase blower
- 2 HP 230/460V, 3 phase transfer pump
- Four (4) 7’’ X 36’’ bag filter housings
- One (1) 200 lb granular activated carbon vessel
- One (1) 300 lb granular activated carbon vessel
- 120V master control panel
- remote module telemetry
- 20’X8’X7.5’ enclosed insulated trailer
EarthNet has successfully formulated our own patented bio-augmentation, enhanced bioremediation and surfactant products which are utilized to accelerate natural attenuation, aid in free-phase product recovery and enhanced groundwater conditions.

Asbestos and Mold Services
PetroClean is a concentrated combination of surfactants and oil-digesting microbes that is diluted with fresh, clean water before use, and can be used in a variety of ways. PetroClean has been used to remediate contamination from gasoline, diesel, and heating oil tank ruptures (see PetroClean and PetroSurf Success Stories here), and has been authorized for use by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
PetroClean is also an effective parts/contaminated surface cleaner, and can be used in combination with oil-absorbing materials like kitty litter to pull oil stains out of concrete.
PetroClean’s surfactant action helps break up non-chlorinated petroleum hydrocarbons, forming oil micelles suspended in the water used to dilute the PetroClean concentrate or in groundwater when used to remediate underground spills. The oil micelles have a large surface area, which enables the oil-digesting microbes in PetroClean to more efficiently and quickly digest the oil. The oil is broken down into carbon dioxide and water, and once the food source (petroleum) is gone, the microbes die off.
PetroClean is normally diluted between 1:5 and 1:20 in water. Heavier petroleum hydrocarbons like grease or crude oil on surfaces like concrete typically require a less dilute solution of PetroClean and lighter hydrocarbons like gasoline or diesel allow the use of a more dilute solution.
Most surfactant and oil-digesting microbe products are sold separately, and are injected sequentially. PetroClean is the only combined product on the market, and because it is so concentrated, it is typically more cost-effective to use than competitor systems.
PetroSurf is a concentrated surfactant material used in-situ to break up and mobilize large quantities of diesel, gas, and heating oil in contaminated soils prior to engaging in bioremediation with PetroClean.
PetroSurf is typically diluted either 1:20 or 1:40 in water depending on the nature of the contaminant and the soil type, injected into the contaminated zone, allowed some residence time to mobilize the contaminants in the soil, and then removed via vacuuming. This process removes a significant amount of free-phase contaminants.
The blue color of PetroSurf aids the operator in telling when the dilute PetroSurf and mobilized oil removal is complete.
After the mobilization/removal process is complete, PetroClean is often injected and allowed to remain in-situ in order to further remediate any residual contamination.
Because PetroSurf is supplied in highly concentrated form, is more cost-effective on a per-job basis than typical competitor products.
