If your Bartow home is in need of septic system cleaning, schedule regular appointments to properly maintain it.
Although most homes have shared sewer systems, septic tanks are still fairly common. Septic systems require individual responsibility, while sharing sewer systems puts the responsibility on the local government. One major task that needs to be done regularly for private systems is septic system cleaning. The reason it is so important for this to be done is because there are so many negative consequences of not properly caring for these systems.
If a septic tank is neglected, it can cause some of the following issues:
- It could overflow, which would release impurities into the groundwater surrounding your home.
- It can cause strong odors to emanate from your yard.
- Overflow could also cause excess standing water, which would lead to it becoming a breeding ground for mosquitoes.
- If the tank becomes too full, it could also back up into your home.
Sewage settles at the bottom of the septic tank and over time creates a thick layer that needs to be cleaned out. Septic system cleaning should be completed regularly, but the timing depends on the size and type of septic tank, as well as how many individuals are living in your home. The more people that are living there, the greater the load is on your system. We will assess your system and let you know, based on these criteria, how often your septic system needs to be cleaned.
