Here at Brewer Commercial Services, we deal with many different kinds of businesses. And as such our service team of technicians ends up dealing with a lot of the same problems that most companies face. We’re going to run through a handful of those in this article, give you some tips on simple preventative maintenance you can do yourself, and give you a better idea of when it’s best to call us for your service.

Common Commercial Plumbing Issues

First off, one of the biggest challenges facing all businesses, by far, is leaky faucets. This simple issue can waste thousands of gallons of water each year, adding unnecessary costs to your water bill. The water damage over time is another factor to consider. If the actual pipe below the sink is leaking, the water will pool in one area, either staying enclosed underneath the sink, or leaking out onto the floor. Left untreated, without adjustments, this can add up to some costly water damage repair bills over time.

Another very common commercial plumbing problem is clogged drains. Customers tend to think less about your drains when they’re using them outside of their own home. Excess paper towels, dirt or debris, and even food can clog up sink drains pretty quickly, causing the water to drain slowly. This gives off an unprofessional perception when experienced by a customer. Using a toilet plunger on the sink can sometimes help clear the obstruction, but the more long term solution is to get the drain cleared and cleaned by a professional who is going to do the job right the first time.

The next couple of problems tend to have to do with toilets: clogs, running water, and broken handles. Wear and tear is one of the biggest challenges when it comes to the equipment you have inside of your business. The bathroom is no different. Commercial bathrooms are used much more frequently than ones at home. As such, clogs begin to happen when the pipes are backing up. Leaking or running water is another issue that you may be able to hear when listening to your toilet. Both of these problems can be fixed rather quickly with the proper equipment and knowledge by a trained professional. Handles can also be replaced with a more minimalistic design, like motion sensors or buttons, to help deal with the constant use.
