menu of options to keep your system in good working order, including septic cleaning Fairfax Station VA.

Does Your Septic System Need Cleaning?

Most of the time, your septic system functions seamlessly. You flush toilets and let water flow down your sink, tub and shower drains. From there, the septic system channels your household waste out of your home, collecting it inside a tank before emptying it into a drain field. Every septic system eventually needs to be cleaned. Watch out for some telltale signs that yours is due for a cleaning:

• Backed up or slowly emptying drains
• Sewage odors in your home
• Slowly flushing toilets

Experts usually suggest cleaning your septic system every two to five years. However, your tank size and household usage trends affect how often you’ll need to get it cleaned. We can recommend a cleaning and maintenance schedule that keeps your system in the best shape possible.

What’s the Difference Between Cleaning and Pumping?

You’ve probably heard of septic tank pumping. Sometimes, the terms “pumping” and “cleaning” are used nterchangeably. However, these two services are different from each other. Tank pumping removes liquid along with floating sludge and waste. A thorough cleaning, however, takes out water, liquid waste, and compacted sludge sitting at the bottom of the tank. Like septic tank cleaning, pumping can be done every two to five years based on tank capacity and usage patterns. Symptoms that your tank needs pumped mirror those when it requires cleaning. Additional symptoms include water pooling on the ground near your septic system and complete toilet backups.
