Plumbing issues can decrease the productivity of an office building of any size. Clogged toilets, unusual smells, and unpleasant odors can distract employees and, in the worst cases, even pose a health hazard. Don’t allow plumbing to reduce your productivity or create a liability. Find out how you can prevent these common office plumbing issues.

Costly Utility Bills

This issue may not affect your employees, but if you’re struggling to pay the utility bill or are looking for a way to cut costs, consider upgrading to energy-efficient appliances. High-efficiency toilets, sinks, and showerheads can reduce the amount of water flow during normal use.

Unpleasant Odor

While office plumbing fixtures aren’t known for being the best smelling locations, there are a few preventative measures to take if you smell odors when the bathrooms aren’t in use. This usually means that there is a small water leak somewhere behind your fixture or in the walls or floor of your office building. A water leak can quickly cause structural damage, so it’s essential to call a plumber immediately.

Irregular Water Temperatures

Are your sinks running unusually hot water or no hot water at all? Both of these issues point to trouble with your hot water heater. Whether your hot water heater needs to be reset, repaired, or replaced, a commercial plumber will be able to quickly diagnose and fix the issue.

Clogged Toilets

Finally, the most common office plumbing issue is a clogged toilet. If you meet a clog that isn’t going to be solved by a plunger, that means it’s time to call a plumber. Typically, a large clog is caused by trash that isn’t designed to be flushed. If left alone, a clogged toilet can quickly escalate. No one wants black water from a toilet leaking onto the floor and causing water damage throughout your office building.
