Commercial plumbing systems are built to last, but they last a lot longer with professional help. Far too many business owners ignore their plumbing systems completely until they notice signs of some sort of problem, by which point they’ve likely already doomed themselves to paying higher repair costs. If you want to keep your commercial plumbing system as healthy as possible, we recommend scheduling preventive inspection and maintenance services for it at least once a year. Let’s take a look at why preventive maintenance is so important to the health of your plumbing system.
Catching Issues as Early as Possible
As is the case with many different kinds of residential and commercial systems, commercial plumbing issues often develop slowly over time. If an issue is far enough along to start showing symptoms, it has very likely been lurking in the system for at least a little while. What this means is that you can’t wait for problems to show symptoms before having them dealt with. Doing that will only guarantee that you’ll pay higher repair costs when you finally do get the problem fixed. What you should do instead is have maintenance scheduled on an annual basis.
Preventive inspection and maintenance appointments allow your plumber to closely examine the system for any developing issues, and resolve them before they have the chance to cause any damage. Doing this on a regular basis can dramatically reduce the chances of a serious problem developing in your plumbing system, and can also increase the system’s efficiency by a substantial amount. Preventive maintenance is the single best way to keep your commercial plumbing system healthy, which is why we recommend it so highly.
When to Schedule Maintenance
Unlike heating and air conditioning systems, commercial plumbing systems don’t have a single time of year when they are placed under more strain than at other times of year. This makes it less important when during the year you schedule your maintenance appointment, as long as you’re doing it consistently. We recommend that you have a professional plumber check out your commercial plumbing system at least once every year at around the same time. This is often sufficient to ensure that you get the maximum amount of protection out of the appointment.
As beneficial as preventive maintenance is, though, you should know that it is not a guarantee. Problems can still develop between maintenance appointments, so if you happen to notice any usual behavior from your plumbing system we highly recommend that you call for repairs as soon as you can. Waiting for the next maintenance appointment to have it addressed only gives the issue more time to cause havoc. Stay consistent and alert, and your commercial plumbing system will serve you well for many years to come.
