Choosing the Right Septic Company

Thursday, October 17, 2019
One of the smartest decisions a septic system owner can make is choosing the right septic company to regularly pump and clean their septic tank. Finding a reputable company that provides comprehensive septic services can make all the difference in saving you time and money. Here are four considerations to keep in mind when choosing a septic company.
 

1. Experience

When a septic company has been in business for a long time, it will have more knowledge and experience with handling different types of septic issues. Whether it’s a situation where heavy roots are penetrating the tank or the tank’s access opening is too small, an experienced septic company will know how to get the job done and ensure a thorough tank cleaning.
 

2. Comprehensive Services

In addition to experience, the septic company should provide a variety of services from regular maintenance to emergency repairs. For the best level of service, hire a company that offers a comprehensive list of services so you won’t have to contract multiple companies to work on your septic system. Also, check to see if the septic company is registered with the local authorities for safe wastewater hauling as it should be performed in accordance with your state’s environmental regulations.
 

3. Licensed and Insured

It’s crucial that the septic company you choose is fully licensed to operate in your state and the license is current. Furthermore, the company should also be insured to protect your interests. There are potential risks to septic tank pumping and cleaning which is why the company should have general liability and worker’s comp insurance to protect you from being held liable.
 

4. Reputation

Last but not least, select a septic company with an excellent reputation. You can find reputable septic companies by getting referrals from family and friends, checking online reviews and testimonials, and reviewing the company’s records with the Better Business Bureau. Knowledge and experience only go so far if the company doesn’t have a track record for high customer satisfaction. After all, if the company makes a mistake or is unreliable, it can put your family’s health at risk.
