Ignoring Central Florida household maintenance leads to much bigger problems. Most property owners don’t make these routine repairs, because they don’t seem urgent or necessary, cost money, too much time, or out of procrastination. But they are there just the same. Possibly hiding behind an attractive facade, just waiting for the perfect time to turn your dream home into a nightmare. 

In the article, “7 Ticking Time Bombs in Your House—And What To Do Next,” in Bob Vila, you should fix this spot before it’s too late:

Most rural homeowners rely on septic tanks for their sewage systems, which operate by breaking down solids and liquefying them. That liquid then goes out into the lines and is dispersed into the surrounding ground. While extremely useful, these tanks are also highly susceptible to clogs from other materials, like cigarette butts and food waste. Save yourself the cost of digging up your yard to repair the whole system and opt for a cheaper maintenance alternative: regularly pumping the tank. Do this every 3 to 5 years, checking for signs of clogs and leaks routinely between inspections

Septic System Emergencies are no joke 

Unfortunately, emergencies happen when you least expect them. When they do, you need a company you can rely on.  

For times like this, it is good to have the name and phone number of a reputable septic service 

Most people in Central Florida have the contact information to their doctor, car mechanic, maybe even an air conditioning person, and handyman. All safely stored in their phone. It should be the same for a septic service, because you never know when you are going to need one to respond out quick. Before the backed up waste water causes serious damage.

A service not only there to handle emergencies, but a company there to handle pumping out your septic tank and handle inspections. This way you may be able to avoid that emergency all together. You feel confident enough to trust them to be reliable and won’t cost an arm and a leg.
