Preventative Maintenance: Sewer Cleaning for Your Commercial Property
Preventive Sewer Maintenance
Unlike residential properties, commercial properties have reinforced piping and sewer access to handle increased activity better. If you notice anything clogged, it could mean that there may be an issue. Find out how to rectify the emergencies that arise from commercial buildings, the practicality of preventative measures, and who to call for regular commercial plumbing maintenance.
Emergency Sewer Cleaning
Clogged and running sewers require immediate attention. While plumbing services are well equipped and trained to respond to emergencies, the costs are far greater than regular services due to the hazardous circumstances and the speed at which safety has to be restored to the general public. There is also a premium for restoring regular plumbing services to everyone accessing those commercial buildings.
To clear emergency clogs, plumbers use water jetting and commercial sewer rodding in most cases. This application is similar to the heavy-duty snake and jets that might be used in your residential plumbing but far more advanced and powerful. Further, if the clog is highly advanced or involves retrieval, access to the sewer system and appropriate protective equipment will be required.
Preventative Sewer Cleaning
Many businesses shy away from regular maintenance because it costs a monthly or yearly fee. However, those fees are far less than even one minor emergency requiring protective gear and city sewer access. Consider investing in preventative maintenance instead of waiting for a crisis to render the plumbing services in your commercial building useless and cause a block-wide sewer disruption.
Preventative maintenance is like an insurance plan that gives you peace of mind about your facilities and increases the likelihood that you won’t face the blowback from an emergency plumbing citation. Regular sewer maintenance generally includes:
- Water jetting
- Identification of blockages
- Elimination of build-ups
