Are you thinking about opening a restaurant? Are you trying to figure out all possible expenses, so that you'll be able to have enough money set aside to keep your business running for several months? While you're probably wanting to cut costs wherever possible, here are some reasons why you should set aside some extra cash for regular drain cleanings:
Prevent grease clogs: Grease that gets poured down a drain, whether accidentally or on purpose, can harden and cause a host of problems. Although you may have planned for the proper disposal of any oil that comes from deep frying vats, that's unlikely to account for all the oil that your restaurant will use. Plates can come back slightly oily before they get washed off, while some of your employees may get so busy that they simply tip some of the frying oil directly down the drain. Professional drain cleaning services can regularly inspect your drain, to make sure that the oil and grease isn't gathering and creating a clog. If it is, the clog can be removed before it actually becomes a clog.
Saves money: If you do not hire any drain cleaning services for your restaurant, it may only be a matter of time before your drains start to run slowly or stop running at all. Should this happen, you may need to shut down the restaurant until everything can be fixed. For a new restaurant, this can be a disaster. Instead of studying the menu and contemplating what to order, potential customers who arrive at your restaurant will be faced with a closed sign for the duration of the cleaning. This is a period of time that could turn out to be significant if the size of the clog is excessively large. So not only will you be spending money on getting rid of the clog, you'll also be losing money in potential revenue. On the other hand, regular drain cleanings can ensure that your restaurant is able to stay open and continues to make money from everyone who continues to eat.
Saves time: When a drain is running properly, it may only take a few minutes for professional drain cleaning services to do their work. If you wait until the drain is already fully or almost completely blocked before you do anything, it will obviously take a lot longer. By having your drains cleaned out regularly, whether they're in obvious need of cleaning or not, you can save significant amounts of potential cleaning time.
