Septic & Drain Cleaning Service Raleigh
Septic cleaning, or pumping, means the same thing. Pumping is the act of removing liquid and floating solids/sludge, whereas cleaning refers to the removal of water and compacted sludge from the bottom of the tank.
Did You Know? The average two bath/three occupant home produces 250 to 300 gallons of wastewater per day! Hence a neglected septic system can quickly become a neighborhood health hazard and an expensive problem.
Usual Signs of Failure with Your Raleigh Septic System
Some general signs of septic trouble are:
- Unusually green or thick grass growing around the leaching area
- Toilets or drains that are backed up or run slower than usual
- Sogginess in the ground around the septic tank or leaching area
- Surface flooding of sewage around the septic system
When a complete cleaning of the septic system, in your Raleigh home or office, is required, it is normal for the treatment to contain a high bacterial content to combat the increased use of hand soaps, hand sanitizers, and other chemical-filled household products. Cleaning the system with a high bacterial content counteracts 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 attempted by professionals due to the potentially harmful bacteria and gases in a septic tank. The best thing you can do to ensure proper upkeep 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.
