Septic Tank Cleaning

If your family or business has a septic tank, it’s important that you maintain the health and integrity of your property’s sewage system with frequent septic tank cleaning. It’s recommended that a septic system cleaning be conducted at least once every 3-5 years to increase the amount of time between repairs or septic system replacements. If you’re looking for a certified septic plumber with a lot of experience in septic tank cleaning, call Septic Blue of Charlotte. We provide septic cleaning services for Charlotte, North Carolina and the surrounding area including, Mooresville, Kannapolis, Concord and Matthews. 

Septic Pumping vs Septic Cleaning

Even though many people use both of these terms to describe septic system cleaning, they are not the same thing. Septic pumping involves removing the water and top sludge layer but leaves the solids that have amassed on the bottom. A septic cleaning means that the solids are removed as well, leaving behind an emptied tank that will provide many more years of quality waste storage. Septic Pumping in Raleigh

Don’t Be Misled – Hire a Trusted Septic Plumber 

Unfortunately, some untrustworthy companies will sell a septic pumping service, and neglect to inform the home or business owner that it does not include cleaning as well. It’s important to distinguish between the two when you are discussing your options with your septic service provider. If you think you’re getting a complete cleaning, but the bottom layer of solid waste is staying put, then it can lead to major complications. As the years go by, some older solids may begin to turn as hard as rock, and be almost impossible to remove with a regular cleaning service. Having too many solids in your tank can also lead to overflow, clogs and backups.  At Septic Blue, we are always 100% honest and will thoroughly discuss what’s included in every service so you can make the most informed choice possible. 

How Often Should You Schedule a Septic System Cleaning?

Regular sized homes with average septic tanks should be serviced about every three years. There are several factors to consider when planning out your septic maintenance. 

  • How many family members are in the house?
  • Do you have frequent visitors, host big parties often or have family and friends stay for long period of times throughout the year?
  • Is there a garbage disposal in your kitchen?
  • What size is your tank?

Depending on the answers to these questions, the amount of time between septic cleanings may fluctuate. If you are living by yourself or are a couple with no children, then you might only need to get septic cleaning services every four or five years. However, if you’re a family with three kids and have a lot of family come for extended visits – then you might want to consider getting an annual cleaning. The great news is, the low cost of Septic Blue’s premium septic cleaning service is affordable enough to fit every budget, even if you need to do it every year. The low cost of the service far outweighs the amount you will save in expensive repairs.
