Why You Should Get Our Septic Tank Cleaning Services

Did you know that it is important to clean your septic tank even if you do not suspect a problem? Far too often, people wait until there is a problem with their septic tank before getting it cleaned out. If you take the time to get your septic tank cleaned out before a problem occurs, you will save money and ensure the longevity of your septic system.

Your septic tank system is one of the most important features of your home. It takes all of your wastewater, treats it, and allows it to drain into the drain field. Once it is in the drain field, rocks and soil act like natural filters. If your septic tank gets full, or there is a problem with a leaking or clogged drain, this wastewater can back up in your yard or even in your home. This poses not only a serious mess to clean up, but a serious health risk. Just think of all the bacteria in the wastewater. You and your family could easily get sick. If this wastewater backs up into your home, you could be looking at replacing flooring, a massive cleanup, and a home that smells like raw sewage.

The Importance of Hiring a Professional

Just because someone is a plumber, does not mean that they are qualified to do a Septic Tank Cleaning. Cleaning can be done wrong, and if it does wrong, it can cause massive damage to your septic system. It can also mean that in just a few days, you could have a back up into your home or yard. This is why all of our technicians are trained fully in septic tank cleanouts. We pride ourselves in knowing exactly how to do the job right the first time. Here at American Freedom Plumber, we pride ourselves on offering a full-service job. We do the pumping, cleaning, and inspection. Many plumbing companies do not offer this full service.

The Cleaning Process

The Septic Tank Cleaning process begins by pumping out the sludge inside of your septic tank. This is done by a vacuum hose. Once the sludge is completely removed from the tank, the cleaning process begins. This will involve the removal of all the solids and the liquids in the tank. Since this is typically done every 3-5 years, you can expect there will be a lot of waste and wastewater during this process. We will make sure that it is all cleaned up, and nothing is left on your property.

Once the tank cleaning has been completed, we will then inspect your tank. Inspecting your tank allows us to see if any issues need to be addressed. This is an important step to ensure the proper functionality of your system. We will look for any issues that might cause problems for you in the future. We will recommend repairs as well as a replacement if deemed necessary. After this, we will make sure that everything is cleaned up, and you will be good to use your septic tank without any worries.

Signs your Tank Needs Cleaning

You should have your tank cleaned every 3 to 5 years. You will also want to make sure that you keep the tank properly maintained. However, there are times that your tank may fill. You will need to pay attention to the following warning signs. These signs will tell you that you should call us immediately to get your tank cleaned out.
