Septic tank backed up? We've got you covered
Notice a foul smell coming from the bathroom, drain or sinks? Your septic system may need a routine cleaning or pumping.
Commonly, septic tanks must be drained of sludge and waste about every 3-5 years, depending on the size of the tank and amount of usage (household members).
Some common signs of back-up include: an unusually foul odor in the bathroom area, waste backing up into the drains, or a very green area in the yard around the septic tank where waste water has leaked out. In this case the septic tank needs to be pumped out.
The clean-out process is fast, easy and safe. Same day or next day service is often provided.
To avoid overfilling in the future, schedule routine service with Matador Septic Pumping. We will get you taken care of on a regular basis every few years to prevent backup and expensive repairs.

Safe water storage is imperative to the health and well being of those using a septic system.
Corrosive chemicals may harm the pipes and septic system. Be aware. Read labels carefully and buy only biodegrade products safe for the environment.
Remember to use 'septic safe' toilet paper and never flush other products. This helps extend the life of your septic tank.
