Are you a home or business owner in Windermere, Florida, wondering about how to best care for your septic system? Allow the team at Acme Environmental Services to explain what may happen if you don’t schedule your Windermere septic tank pumping.
Your Drains May Not Work As Well
When your septic system starts to get too full, a backup can occur that may cause the drains in your home to stop working as well. Your toilet may take longer to flush, and even your shower drains could begin to drain more slowly. This type of drain problem is different from those that result from hair buildup in your shower, or toilet paper blocking pipes. If your drains are not functioning well due to a problem with your septic tank, the clogs will not resolve unless the septic tank is serviced.
We’re pretty sure standing in an inch of water due to a backed-up septic system is an experience you’d like to avoid, so make sure to call Acme for your septic service before this takes place!
Your Septic System Can Clog
If you do not schedule regular Windermere septic tank pumping, your tank can develop a clog. It is recommended that septic tanks are serviced once every 3-5 years. This way, your septic tank will stay in top shape. If you make the mistake of flushing objects down the toilet or pouring liquids down drains that your septic system is not designed to handle, it could result in a clog that will cause backups in your septic system.
Excess Water Can Damage Other Parts Of Your Home
Not having your Windermere septic tank pumping performed can cause damage to the structure of your house. Because septic backups can cause water to accumulate on your lawn or even flood parts of your home, there could be structural damage to the foundation of your home or other parts of the interior. Excess moisture from water that accumulates can also result in mold growth in your home. Considering these possibilities, it becomes even more clear that proper septic maintenance has a pretty significant impact on the health and condition of your whole household.
There May Be Standing Water In Your Yard
Clogs in your septic tank can result in the wastewater being pushed to the surface of your lawn, creating a swampy, smelly mess that will not be pleasing to you or your neighbors. Uncontained sewage can also pose a risk to the environment due to the toxins contained in raw sewage. If the wastewater from your septic system reaches any other bodies of water or streams that may be near your septic system, the contaminants will be carried further and affect the environment negatively.
If your septic system is not regularly serviced and a failure results, you may need to replace the entire septic tank and drain field. Septic system replacement can cost thousands of dollars as opposed to the amount that you will pay for regular service appointments. It is much better to schedule an appointment with Acme today and avoid the expensive problem that could occur if your septic system floods and needs to be replaced. However, even if you do need a septic tank installation, Acme is prepared to provide the service you need in Windermere.
