Septic Tank Cleaning in Altamonte Springs – If you have a septic system on your property, you may not know exactly what it does to process waste that comes through the drains. After the waste moves through pipes and into the tank, the solid waste sits at the bottom. The liquid waste can then receive treatment with chemicals and bacteria within the tank, and then it can move out of the tank. A sludge layer stays behind in the tank, which can build up and result in a backup if not pumped and cleaned out regularly. Our technicians at Clark Septic offer septic tank cleaning to properties in and around Altamonte Springs, Florida.
Why is a Septic Backup an Emergency?
We all know that feeling of panic when your toilet backs up and floods the bathroom. It usually means a big cleanup session and trying to find a resolution to the problem. Septic backups are kind of like this, but on a much bigger scale and always warrant a call to your septic professionals. Not only could your property be subject to viruses and harmful bacteria that are carried in your wastewater, but your personal belongings, home, and yard could be damaged as well. If you ever have a minor concern about your septic system, calling in advance of a septic backup is the best plan.
When we schedule septic tank cleaning, we will come to your property with a pump truck. The suction on this truck helps to remove sludge from the inside of the tank. Septic tanks also have filters that we clean as part of the septic tank cleaning process. Keeping the filter clean ensures that the tank can continue to properly filter solid from liquid waste. If you don’t schedule routine cleaning, the sludge will build up too high and start spilling out into your yard or even into the home.
