Septic tank pumping will remove the liquid and some sludge from your septic tank. Septic tank cleaning will also remove the compressed sludge from the bottom of your tank.  We may have to add extra water or use a high-powered nozzle to remove this extra sediment.

How often should you schedule a cleaning?

Your septic tank needs to be regularly cleaned. However the frequency depends on a few factors: the size of your septic tank, the number of people living in your house, the size of your house, or whether you use enzymes or bacteria in your septic tank. We can help you determine the best timing of your cleaning if you give us a call.
