How to Protect Your Commercial Plumbing

Your commercial building has a larger plumbing system than your residential home. A larger plumbing system means that it’s more susceptible to plumbing problems. While it’s impossible to eliminate the possibility of plumbing issues, there are things you can do to protect your commercial plumbing and lessen the likelihood of problems occurring. Here’s how you can protect your commercial plumbing.

Remove Debris From the Sink 

It’s common for debris to be left in the sink and washed into the drain. When debris such as leaves, paper, and food get into the drain, they can cause a blockage. A blockage in your commercial building’s drains is not only inconvenient, but it’s also bad for business. It can affect your business’ efficiency and make customers feel uncomfortable. To avoid these things from happening, always remove any debris from the sink bowl and put it in the trash.

Flush the Appropriate Stuff

The only things that should be flushed down your toilets are human waste and toilet paper. Anything else can clog your toilets and cause unsanitary conditions. To encourage others to do this, you can hang signs around the bathrooms reminding people what can and cannot be flushed down the toilet. If it’s too late and someone has flushed a prohibited item down your toilet, have a commercial plumber in Frederick, MD come fix it immediately. 

Resolve Plumbing Problems Early

You may encounter a plumbing problem that you think is not a major deal. However, the last thing you’ll want to do is not resolve the problem early. When small plumbing problems are neglected, they usually turn into major problems. For example, little leaks and dripping faucets can significantly impact your water bill and your bottom line. Don’t wait, always have a commercial plumber fix any problems immediately. 

Do Plumbing Maintenance

The best way to protect your commercial plumbing is to be proactive and do regular plumbing maintenance with a local plumber. They’ll assess your entire plumbing system and will identify any small problems before they become major issues. In the long run, doing plumbing maintenance will save you money and protect your building.
