Top Septic Tank Cleaning

Company in The Woodlands, TX

When you have a sewage system—which is something basic in a property—, you have to worry more about it than just the simple installation. If you even went through this process since several residential and commercial properties nowadays have them included in their terrain. But what is so important about taking care of the system? After all, isn’t it suppose to last many years and handle all the waste that you and everyone generate in their properties? This is correct… until a certain point.

When it comes to sewer lines, you might be used to letting the state manage problems that can arise in the pipes or other areas of the system. However, that does not mean they do not require some inspection and extra services from time to time to guarantee their functionality. If you want to get rid of all the waste, you always have to focus on making sure the system works properly. When we keep this statement in mind and add septic tanks to it, you will notice that the relevance of performing some services after the installation is even more.

But before getting there, we want to make something clear: septic tanks are designed to last for over 40 years, and you will obtain this as long as you perform the right services. Therefore, we can say that the fact of them lasting for many years is true but with a few additions and conditions. One of those important things to keep in mind is to clean the tank periodically. It is not necessary to do it every month or year, but you cannot forget this important process to ensure the functionality of the entire system.

But why clean? Is it really that necessary? Septic tanks are amazing to manage and control large amounts of waste that come out from a property—or several ones. But it is common for them to get full at some point. All the waste goes to the tank alone although the wastewater is treated and goes to your ground later on. What about solid waste? All the hair, grease, food, and more that you through in your drains? Aren’t they a problem in the tank? They are, indeed. 

After a while, all the solid waste starts to become stubborn blockages for the outlets that allow the system to send the wastewater to the drain field to be treated. Therefore, you cannot allow your septic tank to get filled since it will also start to obstruct the rest of the system. Like the pipes and even the drains due to all the obstructions. Knowing this you might be thinking, isn’t it problematic to have a septic tank? Not really. You have to get your tank cleaned every 3 to 5 years if the one you have installed fits all your requirements—as it should. 

And if the cleaning is performed correctly, things should go smoothly with all the process of getting rid of the waste and treating the water. Thus, rely on professionals for this service that can ensure the desired results and expected ones. We at Super Simple Septic Solutions of The Woodlands have the best cleaner and experts for this task. Unlike other companies in Texas, we are quite qualified and equipped to get this done and guarantee that your tank will not give you problems for the next following years.

How do you know your tank needs cleaning?


Usually, you should not wait until your tank is almost screaming, “clean me!”, since that means you might have other problems to deal with. However, if you are someone who wants to get the best out of the system and wait until the last minute—although we do not recommend it—you need to look out for how slow your tank works. Also, when a tank gets full this is the most common sign of having to clean it right away. But what does “cleaning” involve in specific?

Emptying the tank is part of the task most of the time since we have to make sure all the solid and blockages are removed. Compared to pumping it, performing this service is more about getting rid of all the waste in the system and making sure it does not get full or too dirty for the next 3 to 5 years. For this, we cannot just leave solid waste blocking the bottom outlet. But how do we know how much we need to remove?

Before starting the process, we will make sure to know the scum and sludge levels of the tank to not only keep track of the future and help you to determine when cleaning is needed. But also, to know how much work it will take to have things done correctly. With that being said, what are the steps for septic tank cleaning?

  1. Removing the lid of the tank and measuring the scum level.
  2. Start emptying it or deal with part of the waste blocking or almost obstructing the outlet.
  3. Scrapping every part and side of the tank to remove the adhered waste.
  4. Get rid of the fungus and bacteria in the tank with the right chemicals and methods.
  5. Make sure the tank works properly after the cleaning is done.

Part of the process involves dealing with other elements of the system and not only the tank itself. Like the pumps and drain field. All this is to ensure the performance and functionality. If you know this is what you need, you only have to contact us right away at Super Simple Septic Solutions of The Woodlands. 

Our team is always available to perform this service and make sure you do not have to worry about anything for a while. Now, we suggest you do it even before you start noticing some signs by scheduling the cleaning every 3 or 5 years. Or our team can help you to determine how often it needs to be done—on average—for our cleaners to be there without any delay.
