With spring around the corner, there are a few ways to prepare your commercial building’s plumbing for the warmer weather. From gutter cleaning to new fixtures, it’s never a bad idea to get started early. From Top Tier Mechanical in Langley, here are some tips to prepare your commercial plumbing for spring.
Checking the pipes
It’s good to have your plumbing system inspected annually by a professional commercial plumbing company. Spring is a great time to book that service. Check for leaks or clogs in the plumbing system that may have occurred during the winter. A plumber can also perform a drain cleaning service, to ensure your building is clog-free and ready to operate for another year.
If you find leaky pipes, check the surrounding area for damage. Water damage can turn into mould, something dangerous for occupants of the building. Water damage will have to be repaired and mould remediated by a professional to ensure the building is safe.
Checking the water tanks
Check the building’s hot water heaters. If not properly maintained, a damaged water tank can cause problems all around the building. It could mean a lack of hot water for occupants or even leaks in your utility room. Hot water heater and tank problems can also include poor water pressure, corrosion, and mould if there are leaks. A plumber can give your system a thorough inspection and provide maintenance and repairs as needed.
Changing the fixtures
If you have fixtures that are old and dated, it may be time for an upgrade. Not only will it take care of any previous problems the fixtures may have allowed but will freshen up the look of the building. You can also switch over to low-flow fixtures and reduce water consumption in your building. This will bring down your monthly utility bill.
Cleaning out the gutters
Similar to homes, it’s important to keep your building’s gutters clean. Build-up can occur during the winter season, filling gutters with leaves, dirt, and any other debris. It’s a good first step for maintaining your building’s plumbing system, depending on the type of building. If your building has an eavestrough drainage system, unclogged gutters will ensure water from heavy spring rains is drained away from the building properly.
Consulting with a plumber
It easy to ignore a mechanical system in your building if it isn’t causing any problems. Preventative maintenance can save you money and headache, so it’s worth having your plumbing system inspected. A plumber can walk through your building and check the system to make sure everything is running smoothly. They’ll also be able to give you a quote for any repairs that may be necessary or give you maintenance tips for the upkeep of your building’s plumbing system.
