Septic & Drain Cleaning Service Located in Apex
How To When It’s Time for Septic or Drain Cleaning for Your Apex Home or Office?
The first step to know when it is time for septic and drain cleaning is to remember the last time it was cleaned. Do you remember? Was it last year? Three years ago? Longer?
Septic system cleaning is highly suggested to occur every three years at a minimum. If you have a high volume system, then every year is optimal. A quick way to know is when you begin to smell an odor, and it gradually gets stronger. Take a look at your drain field. Is it collecting water? What for other not so common issue to appear.

Whether you call it septic cleaning or pumping, they are basically the same. The difference is the depth of the process. Pumping is the systematic act of removing liquid and floating solids/sludge. Cleaning goes a little further and removes water and compacted sludge from the bottom of the tank.
Did You Know? On average, a two bath/three occupant home produces 250 to 300 gallons of wastewater per day! This means a neglected septic system can become a neighborhood health hazard and an expensive problem very fast.
Usual Signs That Show Your Apex Septic System is Failing
How to know if your septic system is failing? Look for these signs in addition to the couple we mentioned earlier:
- Sogginess in the ground around the septic tank or leaching area
- Abnormally green or thick grass growing around the leaching area
- Toilets or drains that are backed up or run slower than usual
- Surface flooding of sewage around the septic system
When a complete cleaning of the septic system, in your Apex home or office, is required, it is normal for the treatment to contain a high bacterial content to battle the increased use of hand soaps, hand sanitizers, and other chemical-filled household products. Cleaning the system with a high bacterial content neutralizes the anti-bacterial properties of the household cleaners, resulting in a septic tank returning to its original purpose.
High bacterial content cleans recommended to be only attempted by professionals due to the potentially harmful bacteria and gases in a septic tank. The best thing you can do to ensure proper maintenance of your septic system is to create a ‘septic schedule.’ A septic cleaning schedule will allow you never to let the cleaning go for too long and run the risk of ruining the tank or the system.
