Offering a Magnitude of Sanitation Services

We operate in compliance with the U.S. and Ohio EPA, State and County Health Departments, ODA, ODOT, and OSHA to provide our Customers and Neighbors with the most Responsible and Safe ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES, SEPTIC TANK CLEANING and PORTABLE TOILET RENTALS

Septic Tanks

The septic tank is basically an on-site sewage treatment and disposal system buried in the ground. The septic system consists of the septic tank and a soil absorption area. 

The main types of septic systems found in our service area include:

Subsurface Sand Filter:  As the water flows out of the septic tank, it enters a distribution box, out of which several tiles are placed. The water flows equally to these four tiles, which are perforated. The water then flows through the holes in the tile into a layer of approximately 2 feet of filter sand. Gradually, beneficial micro-organisms help break down the wastewater further. The sand also acts as a clarifier of the water. By the time the water filters down to the collection tile at the bottom of the filter, the bacteria and suspended solids have been greatly reduced.

Leaching Tile Fields:  These tile fields are used to disperse the liquid portion of household sewage into the soils surrounding the home. Typically, 8-12 lines or “fingers” are trenched into the soil near the house. These lines may be over 100 feet long and they contain perforated plastic tile that is surrounded by 12 inches or more of gravel. Under ideal conditions the water fills the gravel trench and is absorbed by the surrounding soils. When functioning correctly, these systems do not discharge any water into the surrounding streams, tiles or ditches. Leach lines can often be located by identifying heavy, green growth of lawn grass in the yard.

Aerator:  Home aeration systems are basically large city treatment plants that have been “miniaturized” to treat individual household sewage flows. These units use an electric motor to blow or stir air into a sewage filled holding tank. Highly efficient aerobic bacteria then consume the human waste and reduce organic material and disease causing bacteria. A specially designed filter then removes any remaining solids before the treated water is discharged into a tile, stream or drainage ditch. While somewhat expensive to operate and maintain, these systems do a good job treating the sewage waste.

Mound Systems:  After leaving the septic tank, the effluent is pumped from a dosing chamber to the mound. The mound, as the name implies, consists of a certain type and size of sand mounded on top of the natural soil. This helps treat and dispose of the septic tank effluent. A layer of gravel is placed on top of the sand. Next, the gravel is covered with construction fabric followed by a layer of soil placed over the entire mound. The soil layer is to protect the mound from freezing. Planting grass on top of the mound is necessary to control erosion. However, trees or any woody plants should not be grown on the mound to avoid root damage to the pipes in these distribution systems. These systems typically cost about twice as much as the systems discussed above, but in areas with inadequate soil depth or other limiting factors for conventional systems, the mound system can be a good and sometimes the only alternative.

Grease Traps

At Mike’s Sanitation, Inc. we are licensed and insured to pump municipal, industrial and residential grease traps and dispose of the contents at our EPA approved wastewater treatment facility. If questioned about their disposal practices, our customers can confidently say “M S I”. We can give you our recommendation on an appropriate maintenance schedule for your needs and follow through with routine maintenance service.

Any establishment that could potentially introduce large amount of grease, oil, wax or fat into a public sewer must have a grease trap that meets the local requirements. This includes, but is not limited to:

Restaurants, cafeterias, hospitals, hotels, clubs, factories and other commercial or institutional kitchensRestaurants, cafeterias, hospitals, hotels, clubs, factories Food and meat packing and processing establishments, supermarkets and bakeries.

Grease traps generally range in capacity from 10 gallons to 1,000 gallons or more. If a business is equipped with a small, inside grease trap, we recommend switching to a larger, outside grease trap. Small, inside grease traps require frequent cleaning, are often hard to access and can be a source of foul odor. Many times, they are not adequately effective to keep grease from entering a sewer line. Larger, outside grease traps are generally much more effective. All grease traps require regular pumping maintenance.Commercial grease traps are designed to do as the name implies. When adequately sized and maintained, they trap grease, keeping it from entering the municipal sewer system. Municipalities have codes in place to regulate the amount of grease a commercial business can allow to filter into the sewer system. When too much grease enters the sewer system, the results often include grease clogged sewer lines, damage to pump stations and costly repairs for the local sanitary sewer department. When a municipality finds excess grease in a sewer line, they will trace the cause of the build up back to the source. If the situation is not remedied by the offending establishment within a reasonable amount of time, there may be fines imposed. The establishment may also, usually after a notice and hearing, have their owners permit revoked to operate a food-service establishment on the premises if they continue to create the potential for a sewer backup. Specific regulations and penalties for failure to comply may vary from municipality to municipality.

Cistern Cleaning

We will need to know the following upon your call for service. 

What are the approximate dimensions of the cistern?

What is the water level in the cistern?
(*It is best to have the water level at or below 6 inches when cleaning a cistern. If the water level is more than 6 inches, we suggest that you pump it down with a sump pump onto your lawn or wait until the water level is lower to have the cistern cleaned.)

Will you be able to pump the water level down prior to our arrival?
(*You can save money by having the water level pumped down before we arrive. We can bring a sludge pump along to pump the water only onto the grass or down a storm sewer. We will not pump the sludge onto the yard or down the storm sewer. The sludge is brought back to our EPA approved Wastewater Treatment Plant for disposal. If you prefer to have us dispose of the water at our plant, it will be more expensive due to pumping time, hauling and disposal.)

Where is the  cistern located?
(*Is it under a garage, under a room of the house, or outside, etc.?)

What type of access hole does the cistern have?
(*A manhole cover, basement window etc.?)
