Septic systems are something we often times do not even think about. We take them for granted when they are working correctly, so we really do not think about maintaining them to ensure they stay working correctly. Regular septic cleaning is something we need to think about doing before problems with our septic systems start happening.
Professionals recommend septic tank cleaning/pumping every three to five years, depending on the size of your family. Regular septic cleaning will help keep your septic system in good working order and will help you avoid costly repairs in the future. When you schedule your septic tank cleaning, we will bring our septic pump truck and pump out all the waste from your tank. This will help remove the excess buildup from inside the tank, which aids in prevention from hazardous materials backing up into your drains. We will also inspect your tank and look for any damage or potential problems. This will be very beneficial to you because you will be able to get fixed any small problems before they become huge problems. Regular septic maintenance will also help extend the life of your septic tank.
If you are not sure if your septic tank needs to be cleaned out, there are a few signs you can look for to tell you it is time. For instance:
- Kitchen and bathroom drains are slow to drain;
- Your toilets get clogged frequently;
- Bad smell coming from your drains;
- Waste backing up into your drains and toilets.
Septic pumping will keep your system in good working order. If you need your septic system cleaned, call us today (210) 707-0038.
