Plumbing Issues

Marketing professionals consistently proclaim that every public-facing aspect of a company is a “welcome” or a “not welcome” sign. While this is true of a firm’s website and the entrance to its offices, it is equally valid of its restrooms. Since no property manager wants to stop business operations to fix a toilet, here are some insights that may help you avoid the most common plumbing issues.

Leaky Faucets

Nothing is more annoying than the constant dripping of the sink in the breakroom or bathroom. Leaks are chronic headaches that can quietly lead to significant standing water and mold issues. Have a commercial plumber replace the capsule or ring as soon as there is a problem. Then, have the entire system checked for other leaks.

Clogged Toilets and Drains

Posting notices in restrooms and at sinks reminds employees and visitors what can and cannot be flushed down a toilet or sink. Even though commercial fixtures are designed to handle more use than personal toilets, any toilet can be clogged. Store a plunger nearby and have an employee check the drains regularly to prevent overflow and severe clogging, requiring a rooter.

Water Temperature

Waiting for the water to change from cold to hot can be frustrating. There are a couple of solutions that can help. A commercial plumber can install a pump to provide warm water throughout the system with a traditional water heater. You can also install small POU (point of use) water heaters.

Lingering Odors

Assuming that restrooms are regularly cleaned, a lingering foul smell indicates an underlying sewer or septic issue, such as a blockage. If your facilities have been cleaned thoroughly and you’re still experiencing sewer odors, contact commercial plumbing professional like Andersen Plumbing to determine where the backup is and get it fixed as soon as possible.
