If you have a septic system or grease trap on your Central Florida property, whether it is a home or business, at some point in time, it will need maintenance. Unfortunately, these systems weren’t designed to be left alone. 

If they are left alone for too long, you can end up with a sewage back-up or leak, also a very messy and hazardous clean-up situation. 

Depending on how big your septic tank is and how many people live in the family, determines how often it will need pumping. But generally it is every 2 to 3 years. It should also be inspected every year, to ensure it is working properly and change the filters. This also allows for any small issues to be corrected before they become big problems. 

If you’re not sure when you had your septic tank pumped, look for these signs

If you notice an odd smell coming from your drains or sinks, you probably need your septic tank pumped. This odor comes from the growing bacteria in the septic pipes and tank. Getting rid of the bacteria and you get rid of the smell. This smell can also be an indication raw sewage may be about to back up into your home. 

If your septic system does back up into your bathtub, sinks, or toilet, you need to contact Orlando Septic Services. It will only get worse from here if the problem isn’t fixed. The tank itself may be full, the drain field may have a problem, or something is stuck in the pipes.
