Most people don’t have regular plumbing maintenance done in their homes, let alone in their business, because they don’t think it is necessary, they don’t want to spend the money on it, or they just plain forget. Contrary to most beliefs, regular plumbing maintenance is hugely important and worth the cost. Here are four reasons your business should pay to have a licensed professional come out and check your plumbing once or twice a year.
Avoid Plumbing Disasters
An ounce of prevention or a pound of cure? Periodic plumbing maintenance can help you avoid a true plumbing disaster. A licensed plumber will be able to inspect your pipes and catch a small issue before they burst. This regular maintenance can also be a time to check the drains and sewage system so you avoid issues with those systems backing up and overflowing.
You’ve got to spend money to make money – this phrase isn’t really about plumbing, but it could be. Skipping regular plumbing maintenance may save you the cost of that maintenance, but the cost will still come out eventually. A few leaky pipes could make your water bill skyrocket. An inefficient water heater could increase your electrical or gas bill. And a huge plumbing emergency will cost you big time, and take away your ability to make money in your business while it is being fixed.
Putting off routine maintenance often means that a small problem that is easy to fix when caught early becomes a much larger task. While you’re paying for the cost of replacement pipes or appliances, you’re also losing time that you could and should be devoting to your business. You will need to find and set up an appointment with a plumber, possibly buy new pipe or appliances, and for some large issues, keep your business closed while you wait. And while you could (possibly) do this routine maintenance yourself, hiring a professional service to come out frees up your time and puts their expertise at your disposal, just like you do when you outsource your janitorial needs.
Improve Air Quality
Wait, air quality? Yes, you read that right. Damp conditions lead to mold and mildew growth, and even a small leak from a pipe can cause big bacteria problems after a while. This mold and mildew then damage the air quality in your business. Investing in commercial floor cleaning can help keep the problem at bay, but it’s better to fix the problem at its source.
