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 cleaning 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 your septic tank is cleaned, a professional will bring a pump truck and pump out all the waste from your tank. They will also help remove the excess buildup from inside the tank, which will help prevent hazardous materials from backing up into your drains. They will also inspect your tank and look for any damage or potential problems. This will be very beneficial to you because they will be able to fix 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, if your kitchen and bathroom drains are slow to drain, you may need septic cleaning. It is also recommended if your toilets get clogged frequently, you notice a bad smell coming from your drains, or you have waste backing up into your drains and toilets.
