If you own a commercial building, you need to stay on top of plumbing repairs. Even minor plumbing problems can wreak havoc on your office. Luckily, commercial plumbers can take care of repairs for you. Here are four reasons you need to call a commercial plumber for your office.
If you've got a leaky pipe in your office, you may think you can ignore the problem for a while. That's not the case. In fact, ignoring the problem is the last thing you want to do. Not only do leaky pipes lead to wasted water, but they also lead to other issues. Some of those issues can be problematic for your office. First, moisture from the leak can lead to mold growth. If that happens, allergy symptoms may increase for your employees — not to mention the mold odor you'll get in your office. Moisture from leaky pipes can also cause wood rot in your office. To avoid those problems, have leaky pipes repaired right away.
If you've got a clogged drain somewhere in your office, the first thing you want to do is try to clear it with a plunger. Most minor clogs can be cleared without professional help. If the plunger doesn't clear the clog in your office drain, you'll need to contact a commercial plumber. The clog could be deep inside the pipes. If that's the case, you could be looking at clogs that affect more than one drain. Those drains could include sinks and toilets. Before you're left to deal with several clogged drains, call for repairs.
Hot Water Issues
If your water heater has stopped producing hot water, it's time to call a plumber. Lack of hot water can pose a serious problem for commercial buildings. Without hot water, your employees can't properly wash their hands after using the restroom. Not only that, but without hot water, you can't keep your office clean and sanitary. That's because there's no hot water to sanitize surfaces in your office. Avoid problems with germs. Have your water heater repaired as soon as it stops producing hot water.
Finally, if your pipes are making noise, schedule a service call with a commercial plumber. Pipes have a way of talking to you when problems arise. One way they talk to you is through loud bangs. Loud banging often happens when a water hammer develops. In most cases, a water hammer means that the pressure valve is about to fail. If your pipes are banging, don't wait for the pressure valve to fail. Call for plumbing repairs right away.
