Common Commercial Plumbing Mistakes

Business owners have a hard job that requires them to wear many hats. Assuring their property is safe and running smoothly can be a major issue that they rarely have to think about. However, when something goes wrong, like a water leak or another plumbing issue, property management becomes a central focus.

At Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing, we have been fortunate enough to gain the respect and trust of business owners throughout the Chicagoland area. During our decades of service, we have noticed a few commercial plumbing mistakes that even the most diligent business owner can make. Have you made any of these blunders?

Waiting Until There Is A Crisis

Most business owners tend to wait to call plumbing professionals until the problem is out of hand or is a full-blown crisis. We encourage our commercial clients to focus on regular maintenance plans, which can allow us to diagnose and recognize potential problems before they become a crisis that negatively affects the business office. 

Trying to DIY a Problem

Many businesses employ a maintenance professional or an employee that can handle many daily tasks for the overall property. We love working with maintenance professionals and know their job is crucial for most behind-the-scenes property upkeep. However, maintenance professionals should know when problems become beyond their expertise and who to call for support. Our team works closely beside many maintenance professionals throughout Chicagoland, and we are happy to provide the support when they call us.

Skipping Cleaning

Certain businesses require regular cleaning and other tasks to prevent long-term problems or issues. Commercial kitchens, for example, require regular drain cleaning and grease trap cleaning to keep major plumbing catastrophes at bay. Skipping these tasks can cause serious consequences

The team at Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing has decades of experience working with businesses of all sizes. We would love to partner with you to assure your property is safe and running smoothly. Call us to talk more about our comprehensive services or maintenance plans.
