If you are a business owner, you know that plumbing problems can cost a lot of money. Not only can the repair bill be expensive, but if the plumbing problem keeps you from operating your business, or affects the happiness and satisfaction of your employees or your customers, you can't afford to let the problem linger. One of the best ways to protect your business from unexpected plumbing problems is to have a reliable plumbing company perform commercial plumbing maintenance on a regular basis.
Commercial plumbing maintenance will allow your plumbing to work better, as well as allow your plumber to inspect your plumbing for any minor issues and correct them long before they cause major issues. Here are some of the items that will generally be addressed during commercial plumbing maintenance:
- Bathrooms: Your faucets will be inspected and any leaks or drips will be fixed, saving you on your next water bill. Drains and faucet aerators will be cleaned to ensure everything is in good working order. Toilets will be checked and any issues fixed, like toilets that won't stop running.
- Kitchens: If your business has a kitchen space, the sinks will be checked for leaks and drains will be cleaned. Restaurants especially need to have periodic drain cleaning to reduce clogs and slowdowns.
- Other Items: Inspect the sewer main and other sewer or septic lines. Check the pressure of your system and adjust if needed to protect your plumbing.
While commercial plumbing maintenance will cost you some upfront, in the long run it will save you from surprise repair bills and reduce your utility bills. It will also increase employee and customer satisfaction thanks to the operational success of your facilities.
