Commercial Plumbing Issues Can Affect Your Business

Big B's Plumbing - Your Plumber for Life!

No business owner wants to lose a customer. They know it’s much easier to keep a customer than to find a new one. If you’re a small business, chances are you’re spending thousands in marketing costs and for large companies, such as restaurant chains, theaters, and shopping malls that number can go into the millions. Retailers and restaurant owners will invest in their company to ensure customers get the best shopping and experience possible. Business owners hire secret shoppers to spy on their prized establishment, assuring that they get legendary service. That includes checking bathrooms for cleanliness, clogged toilets, and urinals. In many cases, management is concerned about the bottom line, and they forget the details. The fact is, most employees will not care for your business the way you or proper management does, so you have to be on your guard.

A Clogged Toilet Is A Commercial Plumbing Issue

If your business has unattended clogged toilets or urinals, chances are you’ll lose customers for life. Most people don’t like public restrooms in the first place. If they open a stall to a clogged toilet,  it will probably leave a bad taste in a patron’s mouth, especially if it’s a restaurant. Visiting a business or restaurant is about the experience as well as the food, so it must feel right to all the senses, sight, touch, smell, taste, and sound. The truth of the matter is, while commercial toilets are built to last, they do take significant abuse. I think most people would agree that they have observed some horrible commercial bathroom situations at some time in their life. All businesses should have a plan of action regarding clogged toilets and during business hours. Checking bathrooms every hour is a good practice.

Sewage Smell Can Give You Business A Bad Name

Another commercial plumbing issue is a sewage smell; the smell in itself is the decomposition of waste materials. The unpleasant smell is a combination of methane, hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and other chemicals. The foul odor could mean you have a backed-up sewer line or a clogged plumbing vent that’s pushing the smelly gases back down the vent. We often think about customers when considering commercial plumbing issues, but patients, as well as students attending school, can also be affected.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled For Water Leaks

Water leaks are another issue businesses face. While most water leaks will not affect customers, they are a nuisance. If water leaks are within the wall, it can create significant damage to your business. In the case of small leaks that go undetected, they can cause rot and mold. Keep your eyes peeled for discolored walls and damp ceilings or drywall because early detection is critical. As a business, make sure you address toilet leaks as well as leaky faucets quickly. Make sure your bathroom brings a pleasant and healthy experience for both employees, students, patients, and patrons.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
