3 Qualities to Look for in a Septic Service, West Plains, Missouri

Your septic tank is a vital part of your property. If the system isn’t working properly, your toilets can get backed up, your water won’t drain, and a foul odor can permeate your home. Seek out a septic service that provides you honest and professional work. Here’s a helpful guide to help you make the best selection.

What to Look for in a Septic Service

1. License & Insurance

Although licensing laws vary state to state, the business you select should be insured. This ensures that in the event an injury occurs during the repair or replacement of your septic tank, you and the company are not liable for compensation. Licensure adds an extra layer of credibility and shows the business can legally perform work on your property.

2. Education 

septic servicesYou wouldn’t go to a doctor without a degree, so don’t hire a septic service that doesn’t have any formal education or experience in the field. Ask for physical evidence or documents that prove their level of education or pictures that show proof of the work they’ve performed in the past.

3. Positive Reviews

A septic tank cleaning company may look reputable on paper, but customer reviews can tell you a lot about how the business works with the client. Look for comments about customer satisfaction, professionalism, timeliness, and efficiency. These testimonials should inform you if the company’s values and services align with your needs.
