In our years of experience working with septic tanks, we’ve found that septic tank inspection in Bethlehem is something that people often neglect. However, there are several reasons that homeowners should get in the habit of scheduling regular inspections. Here are 3 of those reasons.
Enhance the Home’s Value
A home’s value is based on the quality of every feature of the property, including the septic tank. If the septic tank isn’t in great condition, it’s going to lower the value of the home. For homeowners that are thinking about selling their homes soon, they should schedule an inspection right away. This can help them identify any issues that would lower their home’s value and make it difficult to sell to potential buyers.
Prevent Liability Issues
During the inspection, we look for cracks, buildups, leaks, and other issues. When inspections are scheduled regularly, we’re able to spot these issues early on. Then we can prevent bigger issues from occurring. Otherwise, homeowners may experience backups, issues with drainage, unpleasant odors, leaks, and other problems that force them to pay a lot of money in order to fix them and replace damaged possessions.
Ensure Right Sizing
One of the most common issues that we find with septic tanks is that homeowners don’t have the right size that their home and household requires. When determining which size of septic tank to install, we determine the square footage of the household, the number of bathrooms and appliances, and the number of people living in the household. After purchasing a home or adding to the household, it’s important to hire a professional to come check the septic tank and make sure that it’s still large enough to handle the needs of the household. If not, the homeowners experience frequent backups and other issues.
When we come out to inspect the septic tank, we take the necessary factors into account to make sure that the septic tank is well suited to the needs of the household. If not, we recommend the proper size needed to prevent problems in the future.
Think about the last time that a septic tank inspection was completed. If it’s been awhile, then it’s time to contact us to schedule an inspection right away. During the inspection, we check the various components of the septic tank system to ensure that everything is working properly, there are no issues that need to be addressed, and the right size is installed for the household. If there are any issues, we can recommend the necessary services to ensure the septic tank is working properly.
