Plumbing problems are a headache for anyone, but especially if you own a business. Depending on the severity of the issue, you could be looking at shutting down your business for days, thereby losing valuable time and money. Not only that, but you could lose potential customers and frustrate your employees. It’s no wonder that business owners wish to avoid plumbing problems at all costs. Today, our team at Quality Plumbing & Heating, Inc., have listed three common problems we see in office buildings, so you can know what to look for and when to call us for help.

3 Common Plumbing Problems in Office Buildings

1. Clogs

Toilet and drain clogs are common in commercial buildings, as they get significantly more use than residential toilets and drains. Even though commercial toilets are designed to withstand more use, they still get clogged fairly often and these clogs should never be ignored. Even a small blockage could negatively impact your business as blocked drains can cause dirty water and bacteria to build up and make your customers and employees sick. If your business is experiencing frequent or difficult clogs, call in a professional as soon as possible to avoid creating a bad reputation for your company.

2. Leaks

Leaks are another common problem in commercial buildings with numerous bathrooms. With so many faucets, you can imagine how quickly a few leaks can become an expensive problem. Though a dripping faucet may seem like a small problem, it can add up to hundreds of gallons a month, which leads to a large increase in your water bill. Other types of leaks can also cause office floods and water damage. Therefore, anytime you spot a leak, it’s best to call in a professional before a small problem grows into much larger problem.

3. Foul-Smelling Water

Finally, if your hot water has a foul smell, it may be caused by bacteria inside your water heater tank. This bacteria can potentially harm your employees and customers, thus it will need to be dealt with quickly. Your water heater and pipes will need to be decontaminated by a professional before you’ll be able to safely use the water in your building again.
