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,

We are carrying a septic system inspection today for a customer in Biddeford, Maine who wants to know that their system is operating correctly. We have other septic system inspections today for customers in Cape Elizabeth, Arundel, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunk Port, Kennebunk and Alfred Maine. If you require a septic inspection, for any reason, or if you have a concern about your septic system please do contact hesitate to contact us on 877-378-4279 or visit Septic Preservation Services

We are called by individuals who are not on town sewer so have a septic system on their property to process their wastewater. Of course these systems need to be working correctly to avoid the problems that result from a failing septic system.

Maine Septic Inspections Benefit Property Owners

Septic Preservation Services has certified septic inspectors with the most up to date equipment who are ready to provide our Maine customers with thorough, reliable septic inspections. If your property is not on town sewer it is essential that your septic system is working efficiently to ensure that your waste is being processed correctly. Benefits of an inspection include:

  • Keeping you informed of the status of your septic system. Your system must be maintained to ensure it continues to operate correctly. The inspection will notify you if it is time to have your septic pumped or for any other maintenance
  • Identifying any repairs that need to be done to your system. Spotting small septic problems can result in a quick, easy and inexpensive repair in contrast to a large, messy and expensive repair if a problem is left to get more extensive.
  • If you are selling your property it provides a home buyer with a detailed report of the location and condition of your septic system components at the time of the inspection. The data collected assists the home buyer with their purchasing decision.

Today we have septic inspections scheduled in Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunk, Waterboro, Alfred, Berwick and Lebanon Maine. If you live in Maine and you have a septic system servicing your property and would be interested in a septic inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections in Maine please do contact us on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com

New England Weather Doesn’t Stop Septic Appointments Happening

Septic Preservation Services wishes everyone a very happy 2018! This year promises to be even more successful the last and we are already very busy with septic appointments for our customers. Even in New England weather we are able to carryout many appointments as planned. Today we have Title 5 Septic Inspections scheduled in Attleboro, Norton, Mansfield, Foxboro and Sharon MA. However if the weather is especially bad to make it impossible for our inspector to carry out your Title 5 Inspection then Title 5 does make allowances:

“If weather conditions prevent an inspection before a sale, Title 5 allows the inspection to be done up to 6 months afterwards, provided that the seller notifies the buyer in writing of the need to complete the inspection”

For more information see:

Of course we will always endeavor to do septic inspections as planned but we have enough septic inspectors so that if for any reason your inspection is delayed we can always re schedule your inspection for a day and time that works in your time frame. If you do wish to schedule an inspection or if you have any questions about septic inspections or septic systems please do call our knowledgeable Norton Office team on 877-378-4279 or visit http://www.septicpreservation.com
