Effective Septic Tank Cleaning and Maintenance in Kent
Your septic system responds to the materials you flush and send down the drain. Liquids and organic waste material respond well to its biological processes, while solids, fats and grease, and proteins remain on the tank bottom or float on the surface. Effluent, the liquid-carrying processed material, transits to your leach field for further natural processing. An essential part of septic system operation is the naturally occurring bacteria that process as much material as possible for distribution as effluent in your leach field. What was once hazardous wastewater from your home’s toilets and sinks is naturally converted in the final stages to properly treated sewage. A typical system processes 250 to 300 gallons per day, so it needs to be effective and efficient.
When material floating on the surface and resting on the bottom of your tank accumulates, it needs to be removed by a professional. Chemicals that enter the tank can affect the natural processes and reduce the amount of effluent that can exit. Our septic system experts can help you maintain a viable septic system, and provide septic tank cleaning, pumping, and other septic plumbing services to help you avoid the messy drain backups, foul odors, and other undesirable effects of septic system malfunction in Kent. Our septic plumbing team also handles damage to your septic system, tank, and leach field, whether from age and degradation or accidents such as heavy equipment crossing above.
When should you call us for septic tank cleaning, pumping, and other services? When you notice:
- Unpleasant sewer gas odors inside your home or in your yard
- Gurgling sounds from inside your septic tank
- Slow drains and messy backups from your home’s plumbing
- Overgrowth of grass or plants where waste has escaped
- Visible sewage escaping from your septic plumbing
Septic tank cleaning can help reset the natural balance in your system, allowing it to resume functioning as intended. Flushing cleaning chemicals, which disrupt the natural bacteria present in the tank, can lead to premature septic pumping and septic tank cleaning. Careful application of specific treatments by our experts can sometimes help avoid a total reset. Proper maintenance of your septic system can keep it operating for the maximum time between septic pumping, usually 3-5 years. Failure of your septic system can result in groundwater contamination, health hazards, and expensive repairs or replacement. We provide routine inspection and septic system care to keep your system healthy and safe.
