There’s A Strange Odor

Typically, odor is one of the first things—if not the first thing—that people notice when their septic system is becoming clogged. These odors are prominent, unpleasant, and uncomfortable. If you notice a strange odor coming from your sewage, it’s time to get it cleaned.

Slow Drainage

Like anything else, warning signs will appear in the form of decreased productivity with your septic tank. It may start draining really slowly, leaving you confused and frustrated. This can happen even if septic tanks are otherwise properly cared for. It’s simply a sign that it needs to be cleaned out.

Bright Green Grass

This may sound counterintuitive, as most of us perceive green, luscious grass as signs of a healthy environment. However, suspiciously green, lush grass does not always mean things are better on the other side. In fact, it’s a clear warning sign that you’re due for a septic cleaning or septic pumping.

While most are unpleasant, many of the signs that indicate the need for septic tank cleaning services are routine. As with all other systems, your septic tank will need regular maintenance to keep running smoothly. If left unchecked, an unclean septic tank could prove to be a serious health risk. Don’t delay.
