Septic Tank Cleaning Reading
If your property cannot be connected to the main sewer line, either due to its location or an issue with the sewers themselves, then the chances are your property is reliant on a high-quality septic tank system. While these systems are the perfect solution for properties of all kinds, it is important that they are maintained correctly. Thanks to professional septic tank cleaning in Reading, you’ll be able to enjoy a high-quality drainage solution for many years to come.
Here at Drainage Care, we specialise in delivering high-quality septic tank cleaning and maintenance services. Whether you need a septic system clearing of all kinds of waste, or you need pipes cleaning following a blockage or any other issue, our team are here for you.
Why is Septic Tank Cleaning and Emptying in Reading so Important?
As septic tanks are part of a stand-alone system, they need to be checked and cleaned regularly. Otherwise, they will stop working at their peak efficiency and can quickly create an unpleasant space. If waste is left to settle in the tank for months, it can become incredibly difficult to shift. What’s worse, the smell of the waste will quickly escape even the best-designed septic tank system.
A poorly maintained septic tank can effectively ruin any kind of property, whether it is domestic, commercial or industrial. The smell of the waste is bad enough, but if a septic tank overloads it can cause human waste to seep into the ground around it. This can cause the ground itself to become water-logged and contaminated with all kinds of waste. In addition to being extremely unpleasant, it can also lead to a wide range of potential property damage.
Without professional septic tank cleaning and emptying, your property can quickly become an unpleasant place to work or live.
The Health Risks of Poorly-Maintained Septic Systems
When these systems aren’t maintained as well as they need to be, they can cause a wide range of health issues to anyone nearby. Just some of the extremely serious health risks that an unclean or poorly-maintained septic system can cause include:
- Typhoid Fever.
- Acute Gastrointestinal Illnesses.
Each of these illnesses can be extremely serious and can even be terminal if not treated quickly. Exposure to human waste of all kinds is always dangerous, but long-term exposure can be much more serious.
How Often Should You Clean Your Septic Tanks?
Making sure that your septic tanks are cleaned annually is always a good idea, even if you haven’t noticed any problems starting to develop. Regular cleaning is the best way to prevent these problems from occurring in the first place and can help to save thousands of repair or replacement work.
While cleaning your system annually is important, there are different factors which may change how frequently this service is required. Just some issues to consider when planning your septic system care timetable can include:
- The capacity of the Tank.
- The Number of People Using the Tank.
- The Levels of Food Waste, Fats, Oils, Grease.
- The Levels of Rubber, Plastic and Sanitary Items in the System.
- Bleach, Pesticides and other Cleaning Products in the System.
- Overall Water Usage.
- Leaking Taps or Other Features.
- Local Weather Effects, including Heavy Snow or Rainfall.
- Age of the Tank.
- Overall Condition of the System, including:
- The Tank.
- The Pipes.
- The Surrounding Soil.
- Overall Drainage Health.
