Septic systems can last for a few decades if they are installed, maintained, and treated properly. By depleting the BIO-mat and keeping systems’ soil pores open, it’s possible to keep them running for a very long time.
However, issues arise when debris, grease, and hair build up in drains. You might not even notice that damage is occurring until your system breaks down. That’s why it’s important to get your septic system checked or maintained at least once a year.
How Drains Get Clogged
Drains can become clogged whenever they are exposed to foreign objects. Damage can occur instantaneously or over time, depending on whether an object automatically gets stuck in the drain or if it clogs a part of the drain and forms build-up.
Sewer lines reach from a house to the first septic system component. All lines inside the septic system, along with other water lines on properties, can often get clogged with tree roots, leaves, and roof debris. This can significantly block up your septic system.
Matter that builds up over time causes drains to become clogged or backed up. This can result in your drain not running effectively. Your drain might be clogged if you notice the following indicators:
- Water is draining slowly
- Liquids pool or stagnate
- Bad odors are coming from your sink
Clogged drains not only cause these pesky problems, but they can shorten the lifespan of your drainage system. This is why it is important to be proactive about keeping your system in tip-top condition with yearly sewer and drain cleaning.
Although household chemicals might temporarily help offset immediate drainage problems, they do not effectively clean drains for the long term. Over the years, grease, hair, debris, and sediment cause drains not to work optimally. Garbage disposals, while they seemingly help decrease the amount of items that clog the systems, actually cause drain cleaning to be needed more frequently. The only way to ensure that your drain will remain clear for an extended period of time is to call a company for drain cleaning services.
