Certified OSS Inspections in Bellingham and Whatcom & Skagit Counties
If you live or work in the Bellingham or Whatcom – Skagit County area and your home or business has a septic system, you’re operating your own underground wastewater treatment system. Regular certified OSS (on-site sewage) system inspections ensure your system is operating properly, greatly lowering your risk of causing environmental damage and incurring costly repair expenses.
Certified OSS Inspections Are:
1. A wise investment. They help you to establish a regular maintenance schedule for your particular septic system. The small cost of certified OSS inspections every few years is minute compared to the expense of installing a new septic system because the old one wasn’t monitored and maintained properly.
2. Environmentally friendly. They help you prevent pollution by helping to ensure contaminated wastewater isn’t released into the soil. When that happens, bacteria and chemicals flow into the environment making their way into streams, rivers and eventually the ocean, causing harm to plants, animals, fish and shellfish.
3. Protective of your property value. Keeping your septic system maintained and working properly preserves your property value, as the interest of potential buyers declines when faced with the prospect of expensive system repair after purchase.
