Selling your home can be an exciting time. It’s a time for a fresh start and often to move into a new home that you’re even more excited about. Despite this excitement, there is also a lot of worry and stress that comes with selling a home. There are countless factors that can impact the cost of your home and the selling process. If your home has a septic system, the system can be one of these factors. We’ve compiled a list of tips to help make the septic system maintenance associated with selling your home simpler.
1. Pump Your Tank
One of the best things you can do when selling your home is pump your septic tank. Pumping your septic tank regularly is essential to ensuring proper functioning. An empty septic tank is one of the best ways to ensure that there are no issues when trying to sell your home. An overly full tank can lead to puddles in your yard and odors coming from your drains, which will both be very unappealing to perspective buyers. For this reason, pumping your septic tank will save you a lot of issues when selling your home.
2. Have a Septic System Inspection
A septic system inspection is important to avoid maintenance emergencies. Regular inspections can also help increase the value of your home by ensuring the functionality of your system. In some states and counties, a septic system inspection is a required part of the home selling process, meaning you will have to get an inspection. However, even if you live somewhere it’s not required, it’s still a good idea. In addition to enhancing the value of your home, an inspection will allow your buyers to feel confident that your system is in good working order. Additionally, since inspections are a fairly common part of the buying process, scheduling an inspection yourself might expedite the sales process if the buyers intend to schedule one themselves.
3. Have a Professional Drain Cleaning
A professional drain cleaning is a great way to keep your septic system functioning properly. When you have a professional drain cleaning, you will clear all minor clogs from your plumbing and ensure that water and waste can efficiently travel to your septic system. Clearing these minor clogs will ensure that they never turn into a bigger problem. A professional drain cleaning is one of the best things you can do to keep your septic system in good working order and ensure that there are no issues during the selling process.
4. Schedule Repairs
If your septic system needs any repairs, it’s essential to do this before you sell your home. If your plumbing has any leaks, fix them. If your drain field has been flooding a lot lately, consider diverting water with landscaping, aerating your soil, or moving your drain field. If your inspection reveals and leaks or holes in your tank, it’s important to fix these as well. The best way to get a good price for your home and ensure that there are no problems during the selling process is to make any necessary repairs before selling your home.
