4 Reasons Never to Attempt Fixing Plumbing Issues At Your Store

When running a business, you want every part of your store to function well, including bathrooms.

As a business owner, you’re probably used to filling in more roles than one; a proprietor, an accountant, a salesperson, a cashier, a marketer—the list goes on and on. But there’s one role you shouldn’t be so keen to play: the plumber.

The reasons for this are simple, but it’s mostly for your own good. A commercial plumbing service such as ours has the tools, training, knowledge, experience, and speed that come with years of work. When running a store where you see customers, employees, and visitors all through the day, it’s not worth the risk to try your hand at plumbing problems as minor as clogged toilets and as major as pipe leaks.

Here’s why:

1. You could end up causing more damage

You may not even realize it but tampering with pipes, drains, faucets, toilets, and other parts of your bathroom can end up damaging them. A screw turned too tightly, or the wrong knob could cause more lasting problems than expected, which is why you need to be careful. If you’re familiar with plumbing issues, consider the risks involved before attempting to fix them, especially in a commercial setting where you also run the risk of disrupting business.

Leaks and floods can not only damage your bathroom but also spill over into the store; incorrect management can cause stenches and odors that will definitely emanate outside, and the noise is another problem.

2. You may not have the right equipment

As professional plumbers, we invest hundreds of thousands on the latest, most effective equipment and tools for the job. We carry with us a complete set of tools, as well as devices for more complex processes like aeration. As a business owner, it can be difficult to find and afford additional tools for one-of instances, which is why you shouldn’t stress yourself out over it—we’ve got your back.

Cleaning your store’s toilets on the regular is a good way to check for problems and see if you need plumbing services.

3. You may not be able to identify the problem

It’s not just leaks that can be tricky to detect; other minor issues such as problems with the flush, sediment buildup, odors, etc. can take a while to identify and address, and this is where our expertise comes in. The time required to get to these issues will impact your business, delay the functionality of the bathroom, and end up taking unnecessary amounts of time. Instead, our team can be in and out within a few hours and get the job done while you relax and focus on your core operations.

4. You get to save more by hiring a professional

Speaking of core functions, hiring a contractor for services is always a great idea for small businesses. Not only is it better in terms of service, efficiency, and management, it saves you more money in the long-run. Regular checkups, maintenance and servicing, can keep your bathrooms running well and save you in extensive repairs and replacements.
