Benefits of Septic Cleaning

When it comes to homeowner’s septic tanks, they naturally assume they don’t require much attention or maintenance, but Septic Blue of Charlotte is here to tell you that is far from the truth! Your septic tank plays a major role in your home – it brings waste away from your home, breaks it down, and then disperses the clean water in the soil and grounds around your home. Without a properly working septic tank, you and your family’s health is at risk as is the health and longevity of your home.

Why is Cleaning Your Septic Tank so Important?

Having a team member from Septic Blue of Charlotte clean out your septic tanks is always the first step in ensuring the health of your pipes, your home, and your family. Our team is trained to spot common issues before they get worse, and put in the proper solutions to ensure your septic tank stays healthy and functioning for years to come.

When it comes to getting your tank cleaned regularly, they know exactly how long you can go before your pipes need cleaning, and they have the proper tools and equipment to make sure your pipes are clean as can be. Getting your septic tank cleaned can allow our team to find problems with your filter or any other parts, as well as preventing common issues such as back-ups, leaks, cracks, and more. If any of these issues go unnoticed, it can cause serious damage to your home, so by scheduling your regular cleaning, our team can look for these things too.

In addition to that, regular septic tank cleaning can remove any excess buildup that may form in your pipes. Things like grease, hair, food, waste, etc. go through your drains every day, and if they are maintained or cleaned regularly, this buildup can continue to grow and cause damage to your pipes and your home.
