Do I Need to Hire a Pond Cleaning Service Each Spring?

Every pond is different, some ponds have a smaller water volume, while others can be over 2,000 square feet! While it may not seem too important to have your pond cleaned each spring, it is actually a crucial element to starting the season off right and keeping your pond in top condition. If you currently don’t hire a pond cleaning service each spring, ask yourself why you don’t. Let’s take a look at why hiring a pond cleaning service each spring, may be beneficial to you, and what a spring pond cleaning consists of.

Why Is It Important To Get Your Pond Cleaned Each Spring?

Having your pond cleaned in spring is essential, especially if you didn’t have your pond cleaned over the past fall. Any leaves and debris left over from fall need to be removed. If they are not removed during a spring pond cleaning, your pond’s water quality is going to be pretty poor over the season.  Think…Mississippi river..murky and tea like. Yuck! Basically, having your pond cleaned, Spring, Summer, and Fall, is like having the oil changed on your car. When we come out to clean your pond, we are taking care of the immediate need of cleaning (like changing the oil), but we are also looking to see if there are any problems, or potential problems (like a 21-point car inspection).
