It’s easy to ignore sewer drains until something goes wrong. Really, people do not want to think about sewers. But a sewer drain problem can be an emergency that shuts down a business for days. If drains are not maintained, they can slowly develop problems that can result in the system overflowing. And that is a disaster for restaurants, factories or any other types of business. Not only does the sewer need to be repaired, but the overflow causes damage.
Skimping on regular sewer drain cleaning can wind up costing a lot more than regular drain maintenance. Aside from the cost of cleaning and repairing the sewer drains, a business has to close while the work is being done. So they lose income. And it can take a massive, professional cleaning team to get the premises in shape to reopen. The overflow can also damage equipment, which means the company must replace it. And if the company’s customer base learns of a sewer drain problem on the premises, it can hurt business, especially for restaurants, hotels and other venues open to the public. That’s without mentioning the smell and health impacts.
Running any type of business is demanding, whether it is a factory, a lab, a farm or a venue such as a hotel or restaurant. And when things go wrong, it seems to always be at the worse possible time. But prevention is better than cure – and cheaper too. Here’s exactly how scheduled sewer drain maintenance can keep a business running smoothly and efficiently.
It is easy to prevent these problems by scheduling regular sewer drain cleaning and maintenance. For most companies, having the sewage system professionally cleaned and checked every six months is adequate. Some industries benefit from drain maintenance every three to four months, while a few others can manage with a cleaning every nine to 12 months. An experienced environmental waste management company can advise a company about their specific needs based on their waste flow. While some businesses balk at the cost of preventative maintenance for their sewage systems, it actually saves money. Savvy business owners and managers understand the value of preventing problems. A regular cleaning and inspection cannot prevent all sewage problems, but it does ensure that those that can be prevented are.
