Septic System Cleaning & the Worst-Case Scenario

When you’ve scheduled routine septic system cleaning, the last thing you want to hear is that your septic professional found something unusual. Unfortunately, all it takes is a single tree root or driving over the wrong spot in the yard for your septic system to sustain damage without your knowledge. So, even with all that you know about septic system cleaning, what do you do when you have a worst-case scenario during this routine service?

  1. Don’t Panic. There is a good chance that your septic professional can provide several different avenues to resolve the issue. Asking the right questions will help you determine which direction you should go to fix the problem.
  2. Consider Your Finances. Septic problems can be as small as a routine fix, or could require a full system replacement. As you survey the options, consider your finances and determine what works for your home and your budget. While the cheaper fix may be tempting, spending more to get your septic system fixed for the long term may be the better investment.
  3. Ask for Suggestions. If you’re truly at a loss about damage, ask your septic system cleaning company if they have recommendations for other people or businesses you can turn to for help. As your septic system resource, they will want to help you get your home back in top shape.
