The Septic Tank Cleaning Process
Accessing the Tank
We get started by accessing the tank, which involves locating the opening and checking its condition. In some instances, the lids if corroded or difficult to open for other reasons. If this is the case, septic cleaning companies may need to take some additional steps to carefully open the lid without damaging it.
Pumping the Tank
Once the lid is removed, the next step is to pump the tank to remove the sludge and other materials. This is done with a specially designed truck that has equipment inside that draws out sludge and other materials. An attached hose is used to effectively remove all accolated materials from the tank. The duration of this part of the process depends on the location of the tank and the level of cleaning it actually needs.
Inspecting the Tank
Lastly, we inspect the tank to make sure there aren't any structural issues that need to be addressed. We also take a look at connecting lines and other components. We'll then take the time to explain what additional steps may be necessary. We'll be equally happy to offer routine maintenance and upkeep tips to keep in mind between regular cleanings.
