If you and your employees are constantly having to call a commercial plumber to fix issues at your business, it’s time to take steps to prevent plumbing problems before they start. It’s helpful to come up with a plan and share it with your employees so that everyone can work together to keep everything running as it should. Here are some tips from the team at Quality Plumbing & Heating Inc. to keep your business’s pipes clear.
Keep Drains Clear
Clogged drains are often the main culprit in plumbing issues for office buildings. They can occur in kitchen areas or bathrooms. It’s helpful to post signage to remind those who use the facilities what is appropriate to rinse down a drain or flush down a toilet. Many times, people simply forget, and a colorful sign will help everyone pay better attention and avoid clogs.
Proper Garbage Disposal Use
If you have a garbage disposal in your kitchen space, you’ll need to be extra careful. Some employees may not be familiar with what a disposal can handle. Again, it’s a great idea to post a reminder near the sink that explains grease, tough foods, bones, or fruit pits are tough on the disposal and can quickly lead to a clog.
Fix Leaks As Soon As Possible
Small drips and leaks may seem like no big deal, but they can be a sign of bigger problems or can lead to bigger problems over time. Encourage everyone in your workspace to report dripping faucets or small puddles right away. That way, a plumber can handle the small issue and save you money.
