Just beginning the search for Apopka septic tank cleaning services means that you’re being a responsible homeowner and maintaining your septic system. But with all of the options out there, which provider is best for you?
One out of every five U.S. homes has a septic system installed, and if you’re one of them, you know that Apopka septic tank cleaning services are critical to maximizing the lifespan of your system. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends that your septic tank be inspected a minimum of every three years by an experienced septic services company. Additionally, your septic tank should be pumped out every three to five years.
Don’t Make These Mistakes When You Need Apopka Septic Tank Cleaning Services
Working With An Unregistered Septic Contractor
In order to pump septic tanks, septic contractors are required to be registered with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. They must register each year, and provide certificates of completion for at least 12 hours of approved continuing education courses each year.
While an unregistered septic contractor may offer you low prices for their work, it is unlawful for them to conduct septic pumping services. Additionally, if a contractor is willing to cut corners and ignore rules and regulations, it is likely that they will bring that same unethical behavior to the septic services they provide.
Delaying Your Septic Tank Cleaning
Waiting too long to have your septic tank pumped out can seriously damage your septic system. Under normal circumstances, your septic tank will work as a holding tank for solid waste, where it settles at the bottom of the tank. Liquid wastewater will then flow into a perforated pipe and into your septic drainfield.
If the septic tank has accumulated too much solid waste, it can cause the solids to overflow and spill into the drainfield. This can create clogs that will lead to more costly and extensive maintenance or even the need for an entirely new septic system.
Not Researching Septic Companies
It always pays off to spend some time shopping around for septic service providers. If you don’t compare septic companies, you may end up with poor customer service, unreliable contractors, and undesirable results. One of the best ways to screen septic companies is by reading online reviews from their current customers.
