Business owners and property managers often forget the importance of commercial plumbing inspections and maintenance. Hotels, restaurants, retailers, businesses and multi-family buildings all require a working plumbing system to maintain business goals and keep customers and clients happy.
Leaving something as simple as a water leak unchecked could lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of loss for the business and very unhappy customers. A few important areas of plumbing maintenance for your business or multi-family dwelling are as follows.
Water pressure maintenance
Hotels and multi-family dwellings require adequate water pressure, something a commercial plumbing company can help with. Showers with low water pressure equal a negative experience for the user, and toilets will not flush as quickly or as effectively without proper water pressure. Through regular maintenance and inspections, a plumber can ensure water pressure stays at a good level using a pressure gauge. As needed, they can make changes.
Inspection for leaks and cracked pipes
Leaking shower heads and faucets are not only annoying, but they are also not cost-effective, nor do they make a business look professional. Large commercial buildings can lose a lot of money via water bills that are high from leaks. Leaks will not only occur in the shower and faucet fixtures either. Leaky pipes equal high bills and potential for hazardous conditions and expensive damages.
A small crack in a pipe could easily get bigger and turn into a busted pipe that could flood a portion of the building leading to other costly repairs. A commercial plumber will check all fixtures and piping for small leaks and cracks that could lead to bigger problems and provide the necessary repairs.
Inspection for clogs
Clogged drains and toilets are inconvenient and unsightly. No person staying at a hotel or living in an apartment wants to see what debris are in their drains when they become clogged and backed up. If a clog occurs, a plumber can use the necessary means to remove whatever is lodged in the pipe, restoring drainage function.
Water heaters and boilers need to be inspected periodically to ensure they are working properly and have enough life left in them to serve the required needs of the business. A commercial plumber can also check for leaks around the water heater, refrigerator, dishwasher and even any washing machines in the building. This will prevent leaks from causing mold or mildew without the knowledge of the owner or manager.
Sump pump, water heater and boiler installation, repair and maintenance
In addition to regular inspections and maintenance, a commercial plumber has the capability to install and repair sump pumps, water heaters and boilers for large-scale businesses. A sump pump keeps water from flooding the lowest level of a building. Water heaters and boilers are necessary for all commercial businesses.
