Inspection and Cleaning Schedule for Business Owners

You’re a responsible business owner and you strive to take care of your commercial properties to the best of your ability, but it can be easy to overlook the plumbing system if there’s not an immediate issue. Neglecting your commercial plumbing system could leave you with an expensive (and messy) problem. Plumb One can take care of all your commercial plumbing needs in Birmingham, AL. We offer cleaning and inspection services for commercial properties, so it’s important for you to know the cleaning and inspection guidelines for maintenance.

How often do I need to have my commercial plumbing system cleaned? 

For most commercial properties, a monthly drain cleaning will suffice. However, if your business deals with heavier waste amounts or more solid waste production, a weekly cleaning might be necessary. It’s best for us to sit down with you and go over what your specific needs will be. We can come up with a plan that might even include a monthly cleaning plan so you don’t have to remember to call every time. 

What about inspections? How often are those needed?

Inspections will vary as with cleaning schedules, but there are times and situations in which your commercial property definitely needs a full plumbing inspection, not just a cleaning.

1. Before acquiring new property

Home buyers get a full home inspection done before signing paperwork so that they can see the state of the home and have problem areas fixed or paid for. It’s a crucial step in the home-buying process, right? It’s equally as important to have a full plumbing inspection done on the commercial property you’re about to lease or purchase. You don’t want to sign the lease and then run into costly plumbing issues. You need to know its status before moving into the building. So before you sign the lease, have Plumb One perform a  full inspection.

2. After a major weather/natural disaster event

In Birmingham, AL, tornadoes, flooding, and freezing temperatures, and other natural events can potentially cause damage to commercial plumbing systems. Instead of hoping your pipes fared well, know for certain with a full commercial plumbing inspection from Plumb One

3. Annually

If you haven’t acquired new property and your company didn’t experience any severe weather this year, do you still need an inspection? The general answer is YES. Most professionals agree that it’s in your best interest to get your commercial plumbing system checked at least once a year. This will help discover current problems and/or diagnose any potential, future issues. 

Our overall goal is to save your company money. Yes, it costs money to have inspections and cleanings done, but avoiding them can lead to major plumbing issues or even system failures that will cost thousands of dollars in repairs and lost work time. Follow these cleaning and inspection guidelines to help drain your pipes and not your company’s budget.
