Septic Inspections for Property Owners Who Are Selling

Septic Preservation Services in addition to servicing and repairing septic systems also has licensed septic inspectors who can provide septic inspections and septic assessments when requested. The majority of our septic system inspections are carried out because a property owner is selling their property and it has not had an inspection within the last 2 years so it is required to have one. Our inspector will use use the MassDEP-approved inspection form and submit it within 30 days of the inspection. For most systems, the Inspector is responsible for submitting the inspection report directly to the Board of Health. The buyer must also receive a copy from the seller of the property. In some cases, inspection reports must be submitted to authorities other than the Board of Health. For more information see Mass Gov website

We will always advise people who are selling a property with a septic system to have their septic inspection done early. This is because Inspections in connection with a property sale generally are good for 2 years (If a system is pumped annually and the pumping records are available, an inspection is valid for 3 years). Therefore you can have this done well before you have a buyer and it will consequently be completed and not cause delays later on in your sale. It will also be a selling point for your realtor when advertising the property because the prospective buyers know that the system has passed its septic system inspection. Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Sharon, Wrentham, North Attleboro, Seekonk and Attleboro MA. If you require a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic systems please do contact us at our Norton office on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

Septic System Inspections In Maine To Prevent Septic Problems

 Septic Preservation Services has extensive experience working in the septic industry in Maine providing septic services including septic repairs, septic system inspections, OBD services and repairs and septic remediation. As you would expect many of our customers live in remote parts of the state, sometimes on islands or remote locations. However a large number of our customers also live in towns and are still not connected to a town sewer but have an individual septic system instead to process their wastewater. When these systems are working correctly they are a safe and environmentally efficient way to process a property’s waste. However failing systems can:

  • cause a serious health threat to your family and neighbors,
  • degrade the environment, especially lakes, streams and groundwater,
  • reduce the value of your property,
  • be very expensive to repair,
  • and put thousands of water supply users at risk if you live in a public water supply watershed and fail to maintain your system.

If you have a septic system servicing your property it is always wise to be alert to warning signs of a failing system which can include:

  • sewage surfacing over the drainfield (especially after storms),
  • sewage back-ups in the house,
  • lush, green growth over the drainfield,
  • slow draining toilets or drains,

Septic Inspections Can Prevent A Septic Failure

Septic Preservation Services know that for many homes in Maine that are remote and therefore not on town sewer their property wastewater purification necessarily requires a septic system. All Septic Systems are designed specifically for their own site and have variances which make them unique but most systems are based on the same principles. A conventional septic system consists of a septic tank, a distribution box and a drainfield. Your septic system treats your household wastewater by temporarily holding it in the septic tank where heavy solids and lighter scum are allowed to separate from the wastewater. The solids stored in the tank are decomposed by bacteria and later pumped out. After partially treated wastewater leaves the tank, it flows into a distribution box, which separates this flow evenly into a network of drainfield trenches. Drainage holes at the bottom of each line allow the wastewater to drain into gravel trenches for temporary storage. This effluent then slowly seeps into the subsurface soil where it is further treated and purified. Your system must be maintained and used correctly to ensure that it is doing its job correctly. A failing septic system can create many unpleasant conditions such as:

  • Hazardous sewage surfacing in yard
  • Health hazards to children and pets
  • Noxious orders over large areas
  • Polluted streams and ponds
  • Sewage back-up in buildings
  • Contaminated wells
  • Breeding areas for mosquitoes

Therefore if you are considering buying a property with a septic system, selling a property with a septic system or own a property with a septic system it is often a very good idea to have septic inspection so you can be confident in the current efficiency and condition of that system. Today we have septic inspections in North Yarmouth, Portland, Falmouth, Windham, Westbrook amd Raymond ME.
