Commercial Septic Tank Pumping & Inspection

Lakeland Septic Company of Lakeland, FL, specializes in commercial septic tank pumping, which is the #1 maintenance task for business facilities that rely on a septic system. Here’s how timely tank cleaning will benefit you.

How Often Should Commercial Tanks Be Pumped Out?

Several factors will determine the optimal pumping schedule for your company’s septic tank. Every three to five years is “standard” for commercial septic tank pumping, but your schedule might be more or less frequent depending on:

  • The size of your septic tank
  • The expected volume of waste sent to the tank

What Happens During a Commercial Septic Tank Cleaning?

Our technicians use industry-grade equipment to remove sediment that has built up in your septic tank since the last time it was pumped. If ignored, this buildup can grow to the point that it causes major damage to many parts of a commercial septic system, including the connected drain field.

Along with cleaning out the tank, we do a general inspection that covers the inlet and outlet pipes, filters, baffles, grease trap, the septic tank itself and other parts of your system. We take note of the amount of sludge that’s been added to the tank since the last cleaning and use this knowledge to recommend when future cleanings should happen.

When we perform commercial septic tank pumping, we know you want minimal disruption to your business operation. We’re discreet, fast and thorough, but never hasty.

Emergency Commercial Septic Tank Cleaning

Lakeland Septic prides itself on fast response times for septic emergencies. What constitutes a septic emergency? Anything that indicates a leak, damage or major malfunction within the system.

When a septic tank is neglected, it won’t be long before you know about it. If problems are allowed to progress, you could be facing a temporary shutdown of your facility and, consequently, your income. Additionally, if sewage contamination begins spreading from a neglected tank, local health departments may get involved with fines and penalties.

Signs that tell you to schedule immediate commercial septic tank pumping include:Commercial septic tank pumping services available in Auburndale & Winter Haven FL
