Slow Draining Sinks
For both customers and staff, drain clogs are a problem. Sinks need to drain properly not just for ease of use but because clogs may represent a bigger issue. Try to use a plunger. If you can easily remove the obstruction, you’ll find out what was causing the issue.
Sink clogs may be the result of a number of items, including hair, dirt, debris, soaps, chemicals or physical objects. If you run a business that uses sinks often (like a restaurant or hair salon), you’ll have special drain covers to protect your pipes.
It’s also important to remember that if you put a lot of organic material down a sink (like food matter), or if you have high calcium content in your water, it can buildup in your pipes. Organic and inorganic materials may both contribute to sludge that eventually is thick enough to clog the sink pipe and block the water from draining efficiently.
However, sometimes the clog is deeper into your pipes. There are a myriad of issues with this and you need to call someone. We will snake your drain and determine how to address the root cause.
Faucets are valuable fixtures. They’re designed not to leak. There are a few connecting points at which you could be getting leakage. Water leaks aren’t just a clue that something is wrong, they’re also a waste of money. You’d be shocked how many gallons of water you’re losing from a simple drip.
Check the handle and the head. If water is coming out of either of these spots, you could be looking at faulty hardware or even a pipe issue. If there’s anything you can tighten with a wrench, try to do that. You may not be able to dig much deeper into this yourself. Give us a call and we’ll help you figure out the primary issue and how to resolve it.
Whether you have old or new models, toilets can have a lot of issues. Commercial toilets experience a lot more use than residential toilets. Because of this, you need to stay on top of repairs. Here are some common symptoms and what solutions to look into:
- Toilet running intermittently or doing “phantom flushes.” This may be caused by a slow leak between the tank and bowl. You’ll need to drain both the tank and the bowl. Check to see if the flapper is worn out or damaged. If you don’t see any issues, call us.
- Pooling water or leaks. These may be minor or major issues. There are a lot of rubber pieces and seals that keep toilets from leaking. If any of these tear or wear down, they may cause leaks. Of course, leaks could also be a pipe problem, which means you need to call a plumber ASAP.
- Issues with toilet fixtures, hardware or connections. In addition to sealing parts, your toilet has bolts, screws, handles and other pieces. When these shift out of place or wear down, you can encounter function issues. It may be easy to diagnose the issue if you can just visually assess your toilet. Repairs may be a little more tricky, depending on the make, model and age of your toilet. It’s always your best bet to call a commercial plumber to be sure you get a proper repair or replacement.
Commercial buildings may have showers or industrial areas with large drains. When stoppages occur at any point along your sewer line, these can fill up with water. Even if they don’t clog completely, this will allow major bacteria and mold growth.
You may notice a foul odor coming out of your drain. First, you should know to regularly pour water down drains that aren’t used often. This flushes out any light buildup. Second, if you know the drain is regularly used, you should observe whether it is draining slowly. If there is no obvious sign of buildup or a clog, you could have an issue further down the line or even a corroded or broken pipe that is allowing seepage.
All of these issues require a commercial plumber to check out. Keep in mind that small cracks are a lot easier to fix than big ones, so don’t let the pressure mount and turn a little issue into a huge, expensive issue.
