Sampling instructions

1. Using a clean bucket and a shovel, collect three samples to a depth of 6 inches in random spots in the defined area*. Avoid sampling when soil is very wet.

2. Break up any clods of soil, remove rocks, stones, sticks and plant matter, and thoroughly homogenize soil together in the bucket.

3. Take out one cup of soil and place into plastic bag and label with a sample ID (i.e., Stevie's front yard), type of test, and order number (found in order confirmation email).

4. Purchase your test on our website and send sample to Alluvial Soil Lab, 201 E Center St, Ste 112 #3083, Anaheim, CA 92805 using any postal carrier of your choice.

Turnaround time is typically between 8 and 11 business days. Results will be sent via email.

*To ensure a comprehensive soil assessment in your land, it's recommended to take one composite soil sample for every 1,000 square feet of garden space. This composite sample is created by collecting smaller soil samples from different locations within the 1,000 square feet area, allowing for a representative analysis of the soil's characteristics.

**Always wear gloves, mask, or other necessary PPE while collecting samples from potentially contaminated soils.

Petroleum residue analysis is a thorough examination conducted to determine the composition of gasoline or diesel residues, focusing particularly on volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These compounds, derived from petroleum products, can pose environmental and health risks if present in high concentrations. The analysis identifies and quantifies the VOCs present, including a range of compounds such as benzene, toluene, xylene, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and various other organic compounds. By assessing the presence and concentration of these VOCs, petroleum residue analysis provides critical information for environmental monitoring, regulatory compliance, and risk assessment. This analysis aids in understanding the potential impact of petroleum residues on soil, water, and air quality, guiding remediation efforts and pollution prevention strategies. Ultimately, petroleum residue analysis plays a crucial role in ensuring environmental protection and public health safety in areas where petroleum products are used, stored, or transported.
