When it comes to your commercial property, sewers aren’t always the star of show – but hey, they deserve some attention too! By investing in a well-maintained sewer system you can keep your building healthy and profitable. Not only will this save money on repairs and downtime, it’ll also help extend its lifespan.

Your sewer system is like a hidden city beneath your property- keep it running smoothly with these five maintenance tips from Western Rooter & Plumbing! Take the plunge and learn more about keeping those pipes in perfect working order…

Regularly inspect your property’s sewer lines and drains for blockages or leaks.

Regularly inspecting your property’s sewer lines and drains can help keep your commercial property running efficiently.

Blockages and leaks can easily go unnoticed, so inspecting the system regularly is key for preventing bigger issues. If a blockage or leak does occur, swift action needs to be taken to restore the sewer line and get things back up and running as quickly as possible.

Why wait until something’s broken? Professional plumbing maintenance can help you stay one step ahead, so peace of mind and wallets are always safe.

Be careful what you flush down the drain- only flush biodegradable materials like toilet paper and human waste.

As a landlord, keeping your commercial property’s pipes running smoothly can be quite the plumbing puzzle! But with regular maintenance and care, you’ll have those drains flowing just fine.

The worst and most expensive problem you can have as a landlord is a clog or blockage caused by one of your tenants flushing things that ought not to be flushed.

To help prevent this, remind yourself and tenants only to flush biodegradable materials like toilet paper and human waste down the drain. Kitchen grease, paper towels, and feminine hygiene products are all examples of things that should never go into the sewer system- if left unchecked year after year these types of items suddenly build up, creating huge problems for landlord’s plumbing systems!

Be proactive- connect with your local plumber for more tips about how to keep the sewer system in top shape.

Avoid dumping grease or oil down the drain- they can solidify and cause clogs.

Maintaining the sewer system on commercial properties is important since clogs can pose a serious issue and create a mess that must be cleaned up. One of the best ways to prevent this issue is to avoid dumping fats and oils down the drain, as they can solidify and cause blockages in your pipes.

To be safe, never dump grease or oil down your drains – no matter what kind of plumbing system you have – as this material can not only cause a nasty clog but also damage the integrity of your pipes over time.

Have a professional plumber (like Western Rooter & Plumbing!) clean and maintain your property’s sewer system annually.

Maintaining the sewer system of a commercial property is essential for continuing the efficient flow of water.

Debris, grease, and various other substances can build up over time and cause clogs or backflow issues, significantly decreasing the effectiveness of your plumbing system. It is recommended to have a professional plumber inspect, clean, and maintain your sewer system on an annual basis to ensure that it’s working as it should.

Keep an eye on trees and shrubs growing near your property’s sewer lines.

Keeping trees and shrubs away from your property’s sewer lines is essential for proper maintenance. Roots from these plants can easily find their way into pipes, creating a blockage that requires professional assistance.

This is why it’s important to ensure that neighboring plants are cut back and monitored regularly for any signs of encroaching root growth.

It may also be necessary to inspect the area surrounding your sewer lines for general debris or foliage that could potentially cause a clog in future months or even years if left unchecked. Investing in regular plumbing inspections can save you a lot of time and money down the line by identifying any potential issues before they have time to become an inconvenience.

While many property owners don’t think about their sewer system until there’s a problem, it’s important to be proactive and maintain your drains and sewers on a regular basis.

By following these tips, you can avoid common issues like blockages and leaks. And if you ever do have a problem, Western Rooter & Plumbing is always here to help! Give us a call at (626) 684-4703 today.
