Having a septic system on your property requires some regular maintenance. Keeping up with that maintenance can keep things flowing properly and prevent a range of issues from occurring.

Septic cleaning also protects the environment, so it’s a worthwhile task to have done regularly. When you have your septic tank professionally cleaned, it reduces the risk of septic backup or failure. If either of these situations occurs on your property, the waste and contaminated water could cause environmental damage. It’s worthwhile to keep up with regular septic cleaning to protect your property from extensive damage and a very messy, unpleasant situation. The frequency of septic cleaning depends on the size of your tank and how much waste comes through the system regularly. We can make a recommendation for how often to have your septic tank cleaned and pumped, as well as get you set up on a regular maintenance schedule.
In addition to keeping up with regular maintenance, it’s also important to treat your system properly to avoid overloading it.
