Learn What is Involved With a Basic Septic System Cleaning

septic system cleaningThe first thing that we will do when handling a cleaning is drive our suction truck up near the septic tank. We will then use the hose that extends from this truck to remove the sludge from the septic tank. Your septic tank should already have a filter inside of it which allows it to last years by self-cleaning the majority of waste that enters it. What remains is the sludge that is blocked by the filter, and in three to five years, this leftover sludge will fill the tank. This is why it is important to call us at Lee Kirk & Sons Septic before your tank begins to overflow. We will take care of your septic system cleaning and make sure that everything is flowing smoothly.

We’ll make sure that having us clean your septic system is a good experience. To find out more about what happens during the septic system cleaning process, please don’t hesitate to give us a call today.
