This also made septic tank cleaning in Houston, Texas as important because a poorly maintained septic tank may do more harm than any good.

nk should be cleaned depend upon the size of the tank and the volume of the waste generated by the property where it is installed. Septic tank cleaning in Houston, Texas is performed by the team of professionals that are provided commercial cleaning services.

The cleaning of Septic tank

Once the cleaning cycle of the septic tank is decided, it is advised to get the septic tank cleaning in Houston, Texas every time it is due. The cleaning process may include the following steps:

•  High-pressure pump is used to pump out the water from the tank. It is important to properly dispose of the pumped out water and do not leave it in open because it may contaminate the area and is harmful for the people living around.

•  Once the tank is drained of water, the solid waste that is accumulated at the bottom and the walls of the tank is cleaned with the help of scoops.

•  As the water runs through the pipes of the tank, little solid accumulates inside the walls of the pipes and filters. Therefore, pipes and other small parts are also cleaned. If required, then filters are also replaced.

•  Like drained water, the solid waste is also disposed of properly and is collected in heavy-duty plastic bags until it is disposed of.

•  Once the cleaning is done, the tank is put through the test run, and water is sent through the whole system before declaring it fit for next use.
