Ah, spring! The fresh air, the green grass, the budding flowers…but what is that odd aroma near the back fence? And where did that strange puddle come from? Those are early warning signs of the need for spring septic service in Marysville – and Superior Septic Services is glad to help.
As we’ve mentioned before, winter is pretty tough on septic systems. Even if you are hooked up to a city sewer system, ground freezing and thawing, extra moisture, and even a family cooped up at home can put extra stress on your sanitation system. Septic tanks are something of a delicate ecosystem. All it really takes to mess one up is the injudicious use of the wrong kind of household cleaners. You see, a septic tank is a little microworld where specialized bacteria work to break down the solids from household waste. An aggressive cleanser or an excessive chill can cause a die-off of these beneficial bacteria (beneficial only when inside the septic tank, one might note). This can, in turn, result in an increased buildup of solids which can lead to an overflow. Grass that is extra green over the septic tank is a dead giveaway that something is just not quite right.
If you are seeing those tell-tale signs of septic drainage failure – sinks backing up into one another, burbling in the basement drain, puddling on the ground near the tank, or odd odors, call Superior Septic Service at (425)905-2485 to schedule your spring septic service in Marysville. We can also take care of your septic inspection while we are on site if it is time for it. We are always glad for spring to come, and we are equally glad to help you maintain your home sanitary system.
