Don't react to problems in your Hendricks County business...Nip them in the bud!
Owning and running a building means that you have a lot on your plate. You probably want to avoid reacting to problems, and instead, nip them in the bud.
High traffic areas like bathrooms and kitchens in a place of business are highly frequented, and this means that your drains and toilets are doing a lot of work, so you should do what you can to keep them flowing and avoid flooding. Have maintenance check on them regularly and consider conducting a camera-scope inspection every so often. Som great ways to avoid clogged pipes include:
- Buy thin toilet paper.
- Post signage about what can go in the toilet.
- Provide plenty of labeled waste receptacles.
First, you should look into what type of pipes you have. If they are older, they might be polybutylene, copper, or galvanized iron. These materials are prone to damage and don't usually last long. Please consider replacing if this is the case. Regardless of material, it is important to check them for corrosion or leaks as often as possible, because even the smallest drip can accumulate. Winters can also be hard on pipes, so be sure to keep your building warm enough to avoid freezing and broken pipes.
Sometimes your sprinklers can be triggered to go off without a fire- a warm light nearby or burnt food in the microwave can do the trick. This can cause water damage, especially if not taken care of right away. You should have a water damage restoration company picked out so you can move forward right away with water repair should something like this happen. Especially if the incident was above a carpet, this may eventually turn into a mold problem.
There's a lot to keep track of in a large building. If you know what to add to a regular maintenance routine and some simple preventative measures, your life could be made a lot simpler.
