Septic MaintenanceIf you have scheduled a septic maintenance service, you are already ahead of the game. Congratulations! Many homeowners don’t even consider servicing their septic system until something begins to go horribly wrong.  Septic maintenance is important for ensuring large, costly repairs don’t become necessary. You have already taken the best first step to ensure your septic system continues to function properly.

Septic maintenance services can include septic tank pumping, grease trap pumping, septic system inspection, and more. If you have scheduled one of these services through us at Clark Septic, there are a few things you can do to help your service go as smoothly as possible.

  • Locate Your Tank. While we can do this for you, it is important that you as a homeowner know where your septic tank and drain field are located.  This will help you look for warning signs that your system may be backing up and ensure your service goes as quickly as possible.  If your technician can get to your septic tank quickly, they can move on to performing your septic maintenance service and getting you back to your regular routine faster.
  • Understand Costs. Your service provider should be very up-front with you about costs.  When you speak to a Clark Septic representative, you will receive an accurate estimate of how much your septic services will cost. You can prepare for your service by budgeting for this expense or saving a little extra in advance.
  • Know Your Expectations. Research what to expect when your technician arrives and what happens during the service you have scheduled.  This will help you feel confident your technician is providing a valuable service in a timely and professional manner.
