People never think about septic tank cleaning until something goes awry with it, but septic tank problems in Kent Ohio can be easily stopped if the tank is cleaned. The tank is normally cleaned annually or once every three years, and this depends on the size of the tank (smaller tanks need to be cleaned more often). A trained professional usually cleans the septic tank, and if a regular homeowner tries to clean the tank it could be dangerous and hazardous. However, there are various precautionary steps homeowners can do to prevent their septic tank from getting clogged or dirty. Many of the ways to prevent the tank from getting dirty are commonsensical, and some of these include not throwing coffee grounds, facial tissues, cigarette butts, cooking fats, and other nondecomposable objects in house drains, sinks, toilets, etc.
Surprisingly, household cleaners such as bleach (drain cleaners, etc.) cannot stop the bacteria in the septic tank, and even though these items will find themselves down drains it is not good to overuse them. Another great tip to keep in mind for septic tank cleaning is not to put grease down the drains because it causes clogs and build-up in the tank. Also, good quality toilet paper that breaks up easily when wet is the best type to use, because some toilet papers can cause clogs in the pipes and this will cause dirt build-up that can move into the tank. For septic tanks, using too much water can be a bad thing because every one has a certain capacity it can hold, and a good way to keep from using too much water is to fix all leaking pipes and faucets.
Some other ways to cut back on the water use in your Kent Ohio home, which not only helps keep the septic tank clean but also is more economic, is to reduce the shower time, the sewage flow from the house, and the use of faucets. Sometimes it takes the water from the kitchen sink a long time to get cold enough to drink and the water running like that can hurt your septic tank, so it may be better to get bottled water from the store and keep them in the refrigerator. Also, spending too much time in the shower has the water running down the drain for too long, and this affects the septic tank. These small tips can make a big difference when a professional comes out to the house for the annual septic tank cleaning, and there will be less damage to your tank (which means less damage to your house).
