Our company provides quality services that include clearing out any blockages in the septic lines and cleaning or pumping out the septic tank. After all the wastewater from your home enters the single pipe, it then goes to the septic tank where it separates into layers, such as the sludge, scum, and effluent layers. A septic system is designed so only the effluent layer or gray water drains into the drain field. We recommend that you have your septic tank cleaned at least every 3-5 years, which includes regular inspection. A homeowner must take care of all maintenance for the septic system on their property.
Why is Septic Tank Cleaning Important?
A clean septic tank is important to make sure you are not at risk of bacteria or viruses creeping into your drinking water. An overflowing or improperly functioning septic system could result in sludge or scum seeping into your yard and soil. A regular cleaning of your septic tank can also provide an opportunity to check for leaks in your tank and inspect the scum and sludge layers of your system. We also provide a septic tank inspection service.
Signs a Septic Tank Should Be Cleaned
It’s difficult to determine how full your septic tank is without regular inspections. If ignored the tank can overflow, which may cause toilets and drains to back up in the home. A flooded or sewage filled yard and a strong odor may also indicate your tank has overflowed and needs to be cleaned out. Below ground, an overflowing septic tank can cause unprocessed waste to flood into the drain field. Leaks may also cause contaminated waste to seep into soil and eventually groundwater, which can introduce dangerous bacteria.
Why Hire a Professional?
A well functioning septic system has a healthy microbial ecosystem that aids in the breakdown of septage. However, the scum and sludge layers will build up over time and should be cleaned out periodically. A homeowner must monitor and maintain their own septic systems, as these systems are not taken care of in the same way as a city sewer system. If problems arise and the system is not monitored regularly, these problems will be noticed when obvious and then it’s often too late for a simple fix. A professional has the training and equipment to expertly maintain a septic system to ensure it lasts to its full potential. Give us a call to discover working with true septic system professionals.
