Putting Together a Monthly Plumbing Maintenance Plan for Your Business
Plumbing is such an essential part of a commercial structure. It’s one of the main provisions that bring convenience for everyone. Without it, it’s safe to say that life would (literally) stink, and that is bad news for business. Therefore, if you own a commercial establishment, monthly plumbing maintenance is a must to ensure the smooth flow of your operations, as well as to protect the business image.
When you’re putting together a monthly plumbing maintenance plan, here at Brewer Commercial Plumbing Services, we recommend identifying the most common plumbing issues as the best starting point. Typical plumbing problems include the following:
- Busted or leaky pipes (these cause costly loss of water and damage to other structural components)
- Clogged drains (these usually result in flooding and breeding of harmful bacteria and pests)
- Leaking faucets (also cause loss of water, and attract pests)
- Leaky hose bib (a small one can result in gallons of lost water every month, which will reflect on your monthly water bill)
- Low water pressure (makes cleaning difficult and time-consuming because not enough water is released right away, and it can also make maintaining personal hygiene troublesome)
- Running toilets (also cause loss of water and great inconvenience to workers and customers)
- Sump pump failure (this can cause flooding and damages)
- Water heater failure (an inconvenience, especially during the cold months when hot water is absolutely necessary)
Most of these problems are actually easy to repair on your own, but if you want the most efficient way of dealing with these plumbing woes, you need to hire the pros for routine maintenance. Examples of monthly professional plumbing services that can address these common problems are:
- Drain cleaning
- Water heaters and boiler check
- Grease trap cleaning
- Backflow check
- Water, sewer, and gas lines check
- Camera line inspection
- Pump maintenance
Creating a plumbing maintenance plan, however, is not just about knowing the professional repair services available to your business. Professional plumbers say it should also include the determination of the reasons behind the usual plumbing issues. With this, you can implement the appropriate methods to prevent them from derailing your operations. Basically, by knowing what causes plumbing problems, the business can be more proactive with maintenance.
And lastly, the plan must include helpful instructions for daily maintenance and even minor repairs. This way, problems can be contained or prevented from getting worse. Routine plumbing can be carried out more easily every month; plus, you can avoid untimely replacements of plumbing fixtures and other components.
