Ready to sell your home/building? Schedule your Time of Transfer now!

Iowa’s time of transfer septic system inspection law (SF261) was passed by the Iowa legislature in April of 2008 and took effect July 1, 2009. This law requires that every home/building served by a septic system have that septic system inspected prior to the sale or deed transfer for the home/building.

Grease Trap Service

We now have one truck servicing restaurant grease traps and interceptors on a daily basis. We also have a computer program system for prompt scheduling and assuring courteous and efficient service.

All commercial kitchens are required to have a grease trap or an interceptor that prevents liquid waste contaminated with oil, fat, and grease from entering the sewer system, a problem that causes not only clogs and interrupted business but serious environmental impact.
