Commonwealth Waste Solutions Is Recommending Scheduling Septic Tank Inspections For Spring 2022

Commonwealth Waste Solutions, a company offering residential and commercial septic system maintenance services in Chesterfield County, Virginia, and surrounding counties, is reminding homeowners to schedule their septic tank inspection for Spring 2022.

A spokesperson for the company talks about the importance of septic tank inspection and the best time to get it done by saying, “Septic tank inspections are an important part of maintaining your home's plumbing system. Septic tanks should be inspected every three to five years to avoid problems leading to costly repairs or early replacement. The best time for an inspection is usually in the early spring because the ground is not frozen and it's easier for your technician to get in the inspection pit. Septic tank inspection is something that should only be done by a professional. During a septic tank inspection, the inspector will check the tank, lines, and drainage field for damage or blockages. If any problems are found, we will repair them before they cause further damage. Readers can contact Commonwealth Waste Solutions at the phone number (804) 895-6355 for more information or find us on social media at to ask us about scheduling an inspection for the septic system in your Mechanicsville, VA, home.”

The company typically offers two types of septic tank inspections – a basic routine homeowner’s inspection and a more detailed real estate septic system inspection. A basic inspection will include uncovering the septic tank access lid, determining the amount of waste inside, and making maintenance recommendations such as septic tank pumping, cleaning, and effluent filter cleaning. As a part of a basic inspection, the company will also perform a very basic drain field evaluation, determine where it is located and if it appears to be operating properly. A basic septic system inspection is highly recommended for homeowners who feel they may be experiencing a problem and would like some professional advice.

Real estate septic inspections are reserved for situations where a professional evaluation of the septic tank is required to get a bank or mortgage lender to close on a deal when a customer approaches them to propose buying a property. Real estate septic system inspections are more thorough than the aforementioned basic inspection process. Along with the steps performed during a basic inspection, the company’s techs will also access the distribution box and water test the drain field to ensure proper absorption. When potential problems are found, this information is provided to the real estate agents involved. It gives the prospective buyer the ability to make an informed decision about the purchase of not only the home but the septic system as well. The company will also offer to perform repairs if any blocking problems are found that require an urgent solution. Most repairs will require the issuance of a septic repair permit from the local health department. If the repair requires the installation of a new drain field, soil testing will most likely be deemed mandatory.

The services offered by Commonwealth Waste Solutions are appreciated by the local community and the quality of customer service is reflected in the high review scores that it has received on several different platforms. On its Google My Business page, the company has an impressive rating of 4.4 out of 5 from 15 reviews. The same is reflected on its Yelp page where it has a perfect 5 out of 5 rating from 6 reviews.

One of the recent reviews that Commonwealth Waste Solutions has received on its Yelp page says, “Trustworthy, punctual, respectful,.... what else can one ask for in a business? Open communication from the beginning to the end. Jason is extremely knowledgeable in the world of septic systems. We have an Orenco AdvanTex treatment system and Jason went above and beyond to make sure the pumping service was correct. I would recommend Commonwealth Waste to anyone needing assistance with their septic system.” Readers can check out more such reviews from satisfied customers by heading over to the company’s Yelp page at
