Septic tank cleaning is an important process - debris can solidify and end up blocking pipes that lead into and out of the tank itself. With proper cleaning, all debris inside the tank can be removed in order to prevent issues.
Most homeowners incur $280 to $500 for their septic tank cleaning.
It’s advisable to have the tank pumped at least once every three years. If you let the tank overflow, it can result in significant problems that may require replacement (a $5,000 to $10,000 cost). If you notice pools of water around the home, slow draining sinks and toilets, or frequent foul odors, it may be time for septic tank cleaning.
Before you hire a professional for this service, here are questions to ask your septic tank cleaner.
These questions will make it easier to estimate the septic tank cleaning cost and whether your contractor is a good pick for the job.
