Have you ever wondered if you can handle your Geneva septic pumping on your own? Here’s why you may need to think twice.
If you’re a homeowner who has been successful in performing past home-maintenance work on your own, you may be considering whether it is worth hiring certain projects to be done by someone else. Though many home repair projects are safe to accomplish alone, there are some jobs that should be left to professionals. One of these is handling your Geneva septic pumping. Here at Acme Environmental Services, we want to be the ones you call to assist with your septic service needs. Here are some reasons why this job should be handled by professionally-trained crew members only.
It Can Be Dangerous
Most home-improvement and maintenance jobs require consideration for the physical safety of those who are doing the work. Because cleaning your septic tank involves a few different elements that can be very dangerous if not properly performed, it is always in your best interest to hire a trained professional to do your Geneva septic pumping. It is also important that the system is inspected for any other problems that may be present in your septic system. If the reason for your call is that you suspect damage or a clog in your septic tank, these problems should be evaluated by a trained professional so that you can avoid being injured. Septic systems also contain methane gas which is harmful to you and the environment in unregulated amounts. This is another aspect of the job that is best handled by someone experienced in the field of septic systems.
You May Not Have Access To Appropriate Equipment
Professional septic maintenance crews have access to specific materials and equipment that make pumping your septic system a safe and efficient job. For example, our crews here at Acme Environmental Services drive special pump trucks to each service location. These trucks have a large tank attached to the bed of the truck where the waste that is removed from your septic system is transported. Without access to a proper tank, it is extremely challenging and potentially dangerous to attempt to transport and properly dispose of waste materials once they are removed.
Service Crews Are Trained To Accomplish Each Step Of The Process
If you do not know the location of your septic system, our crews have probes that are designed to quickly detect and locate your septic tank. Once the tank is located, our service team at Acme can safely clean your septic system, complete an inspection of the interior to ensure that it is working properly, and transfer the materials to a location that is designated for the safe handling of septic waste.
Each of these steps can be far more challenging to accomplish without the aid of these specialized tools, without an eye trained to identify wear and tear, or other complications that may be present in your septic system. Allowing a trained professional to service your septic system will prevent potential problems that are more expensive and complicated down the road.
It Is Easier!
Life can be extremely hectic, and it can be difficult to find the time to study how to properly maintain or service your own home projects. The United States Environmental Protection Agency advises that you always contact someone who is trained to handle any problems you may encounter with your septic system, or simply for routine cleaning or maintenance. It is important to pump your septic system at least every one to three years, but ideally once per year. Allow your friends at Acme Environmental Services to remove the challenge of this task from your to-do list. We would love to provide you and your family with the help you need.
