Hiring professionals to clean your septic system is the best way to keep it running smoothly and efficiently. Here is our step-by-step process for septic cleaning Orlando.
Step 1: Clearing Out Sludge
We start off with a basic pumping process to clear out all of the sludge produced by bacteria build-up inside and usually found at the bottom part of the tank. This initial step is an important one to ensure there is enough space for your tank to handle more waste.
Step 2: Clearing Out The Drainfield
After we’ve cleared the sludge in the septic tank, we clear out the sludge and other compounds from the drain field line.
Pro Tip: You should get your septic tank’s drain field regularly inspected to avoid any unwanted damage from excessive build-up. Oftentimes, when there’s a problem beneath the surface, your drain field will show symptoms that include pooling water, pungent odor, discoloration of grass, etc. – which means you can sometimes rely on just your eyes and nose to determine whether your drain field is in good health.
Step 3: Cleaning The Filters
Filters in your septic systems collect lint, coffee grounds, and other items that can’t break down over time. As the last step in our septic cleaning Orlando process, we’ll clean the filters to ensure everything in the system can flow properly. In cases where filters are worn out, we can also replace them for optimal results.
How Often Do You Need Septic Cleaning Orlando?
Depending on the household, we highly recommend scheduling your septic cleaning at least every 1 to 3 years. If you have a larger household, up to 8 people, we suggest calling us once a year to clean the septic tank and keep up with regular maintenance.
