Lift the Lid of the Septic Tank

If you want to start to diagnose the problem yourself, you’re going to need to check the water level in your septic tank first. Your first thought may be to start cleaning the mess, but it will keep happening if your tank is full so that may not help.

If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, this is the perfect time to give us a call. We have handled septic emergencies for decades and know what to do. As a note, this doesn’t mean that your entire septic tank needs to be replaced it may need to be pumped which can save you money. Your best bet is to call and find out.

Be Wary of Soggy Soil

If you see soggy soil or standing water, you need to keep people and pets away from the area because it can be a biohazard for them. This can lead to sickness or worse. A good way to tell is if the area has a foul odor. Waterwaste management is full chemicals, human waste, and oils and when combined, you’ll be able to smell the sewage.

Call an Expert

If there’s sewage in your home or business, it’s best to call an expert the moment the problem becomes visible to you. Some actions can be done to save you money and make sure the issue is resolved as quickly as possible. If you need septic system service in Dayton, Ohio, reach out today!
