Brandon came at the agreed upon time to clean a basement drain. He explained everything he was doing, was considerate of the cleanliness of the house, and did his work quickly and for the agreed upon amount. I'd hire again.

Josh did a great job remodeling my entire bathroom, tile, shower, floor, trim, paint, vanity, lighting. Bathroom looks great, affordable quote with excellent communication/project management and a very fair price. I would recommend for bathroom tiling and paint, etc. I actually did all the demo, and it got too difficult for me to continue, Josh came in and knocked the project out the park.

We had to have some work done in our basement. Flooring, bathroom remodel and some electrical. Super 3 Handyman was very professional, on time and actually showed up. WE called 2 other contractors and none of them showed up on time. We try to get 3 quotes to see which one is the best. We were able to compare and realize that Super 3 was the cheapest. He was so friendly, good with our dog and made sure he cleaned up after himself every day that he worked at our house. The custom tile work is amazing. He is quick, efficient and reliable. I trust him, and I will have him back for our next big project.. Thank you Super 3 Handyman! :)

Herley did a great job installing a new faucet in my bathroom. He was on time. Very professional. Explained very thoroughly what he was doing. Did a clean job. He was reasonably priced. He also explained that as a general contractor he can also help with any other projects inside and outside the house. I will certainly hire him again for other projects that may come up in my house and highly recommend him.

Paul came over to clean up my yards which were very overgrown. He did such a great job!! He also took the time to let me know some issues he saw that should be addressed. He does lots of other handyman services so I'm definitely having him back.

    I had severe heavy traffic area and tea stains on my white carpeting in my house. TopKleen was able to make them look like brand new again in a very short amount of time. Their service is fast, good and professional. Their work was so good I even had them clean the carpeting at my business as well. I would recommend that if you are looking for a great deal with excellent quality, then you must contact TopKleen for your carpet cleaning needs.

    Koz plumbing not only did a thorough job. They fixed an outside water faucet that had broken over the winter and fixed a crack in the foundation that was a result of water freezing from the leak. They left the work area cleaned and even took some time to answer my questions about the battery backup to the sump pump and showed me an issue they discovered with the water heater. I am definitely calling them back to do some other work.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How often do you clean a septic tank?

    For homeowners with a septic system, it’s important to have a regular septic cleaning schedule. To protect ground and drinking water, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends residential septic cleaning every three years. Many septic system companies state that you can maintain a healthy system with regular septic cleanings every three to five years. In addition to cleaning, a septic tank inspection once a year will uncover problems and can save you thousands in cleanup and repair.

    When waste goes into your septic system, it separates into three parts. The solids (sludge) drop to the bottom, wastewater floats in the middle, and a layer of scum rises to the top. Regularly scheduled cleanings prevent the sludge in your septic tank from building up and clogging your tank, leading to an overflow. Pricing for a standard septic cleaning ranges between $200 and $500, with the national average cost at $315. It’s easier, more cost-effective, and better for your home health to keep your septic tank maintained.

    How much is it to clean a septic tank?

    Nobody wants their septic tank to back up. Regular septic cleaning and pumping is important to keep your ground and drinking water protected from harmful bacteria. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends septic system cleaning every three years. The national average cost for a septic tank specialist is $315. Costs for septic cleaning may vary based on where you live, how large your septic tank is, and how long it has been since the last cleaning. If it’s been many years since you’ve had your tank cleaned, the process of breaking up and removing the solids may take longer and could cost more. Typical residential septic tanks range in size from 1,000 to 2,500 gallons. The price range for septic cleaning usually averages $200-$500, with varying by tank size. Repairs or replacement parts will also add to your cost. To keep your septic tank in good health between cleanings, only flush approved items such as toilet paper, and don’t rely on your garbage disposal for composting. Items that don’t break down easily (like lemon rinds or feminine hygiene products) can back up the septic system, leading to clogs and overflow. If you smell the unmistakable odor of sewage or can see sewage bubbling up above your drain field, call for a septic cleaning immediately.

    Who pumps septic tanks?

    Septic system professionals pump septic tanks. Pros in different states will have different licensing and certification regulations. Make sure the company you hire is licensed and certified, is a legitimate business, and has the appropriate insurance. Damage to your septic system could cost thousands of dollars in cleanup and repair, so it’s best to hire a qualified professional from the start.

    Using an industrial-strength vacuum hose connected to a tanker truck, the septic tank company will pump out the contents of your tank. First they break up the scum of the top layer, then mix the sludge (on the bottom) into the wastewater for removal. To get all the sludge and scum from the tank, pros may use a tool called a septage spoon that loosens stubborn waste from the sides of the tank. After the tank is hosed down and empty, it is inspected for any cracks or leaks that could lead to trouble in the future. The waste in the truck is then transported and disposed of at a waste management treatment center, a cesspool or an approved dumping site.

    When should you clean a septic system?

    Experts agree that you should clean your septic system every three to five years for optimal system health and safe water. You should also have it inspected every year to catch minor issues before they become major. If you think you may be overdue for a septic cleaning, here are signs that you should call a pro immediately.

    • You’re at capacity: If the bottom of the scum layer is within six inches of the bottom of the tank’s outlet or if the top of the sludge layer is within 12 inches of the outlet, your tank needs to be pumped, according to the EPA.
    • It stinks: If you can smell wastewater, call a pro right away to clean your tank, pipes and field.
    • Sewage backup: Raw sewage backing up into the pipes in your home is no fun. The pros can pump out your pipes, clean your tanks and clear any clogs, but it will be a complex and messy job.
    • Pooling water: Water collecting around your tank or drain field can be a sign you need to clean your septic system.
    • Super grass: If the grass above your septic system drain field suddenly gets vibrantly green and lush, the septic tank leak could be leaking sewage and fertilizing your lawn in unwanted ways. Call a pro to inspect it right away.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
