Your septic tank builds up sludge over time that can clog your tank if it isn’t taken care of. A septic tank cleaning service takes care of this sludge by pumping both the liquids and solids out to take care of any clogs or buildup that could potentially cause damage to your septic tank if the buildup isn’t handled properly.
It is recommended that you hire a professional septic tank cleaning service every three to five years, but this could be affected by factors such as your household size and the size of your septic tank. Outside of the three-to-five-year window, there are some other signs that could indicate you need a septic tank cleaning service.One sure sign is pooling water around the drainage area. With clogs or simply too much waste material in your septic tank, the water has nowhere to go but into the drainage area. This can also result in slow drainage in your sinks, bathtubs, or other areas that connect to your septic tank. While this could also be a sign of some sort of object stuck in your pipes, when paired with other signs, slow drainage could indicate a septic tank issue that might simply be solved by a cleaning service.
Professional septic tank cleaning services can prevent you from having to spend more money later on making repairs that could have been prevented. If you’re unsure when the last time your septic tank was cleaned or you’re dealing with septic tank issues, call us here at Marion Pumper.
