Septic Inspection Services
A septic system inspection may be required when buying or selling a home, or refinancing a current property. Completing an inspection before listing your home can help you know about any repairs that may be needed, so you don’t run into any delays during the closing. Generally speaking, homeowners should have a full septic inspection done every three to five years to keep their system running smoothly. This regular schedule helps determine any issues or needed repairs. If you notice any problems (like weak flushing toilets, standing water in your septic field, or unusual odors around toilets or drains) an inspection should be your first call as well.
