Use Cleaner Innovations TM Septic Cleaner For Healthy, Well-Balanced Septic System

When it comes to maintaining a healthy septic system in La Grange, Empire, Waterford, Empire, and Knights Ferry, you need to have your septic tanks pumped regularly and promote a well-balanced bacteria colony, which help to breakdown the solids in your septic system. We recommend using our natural bacteria septic cleaner, Cleaner Innovations, to neutralize the effects of modern antibacterial soaps and chlorine cleaning products, which can disrupt the natural balance of bacteria. If a septic system stops having the ability to breakdown solids, it can potentially lead to septic system back ups, clogged leach lines, and/or catastrophic leach field failure. We can add our septic cleaner directly to your septic tank during a cleaning and maintenance service.

Give us a call today to speak to a member of our friendly and knowledgeable staff. We are open Monday through Friday, 8am - 5:00pm.
