Posted on November 15, 2016 by admin in plumbing

Commercial drain cleaning may just be the one thing keeping your commercial property a success. At this time of year, with the winter weather ready to roar, your focus is keeping your property warm. However, a drain clog can be just as bothersome, especially when your customers and employees need clear drains for a wide range of purposes. If you own a restaurant, your employees wouldn’t be able to work at their best if a sink is clogged. If there are clogs in any bathroom fixtures, you won’t only face employee dissatisfaction, but the dissatisfaction of your customers as well. In fact, you may own the most thriving commercial property in New England, but even just one drain clog can put a halt to any business in a hurry. Allowing a clog to worsen may leave you unable to use essential fixtures, and even see you spend more money on plumbing repair. When you’re trying to make a profit with your business, you certainly do not want to risk losing any more money than necessary. But with clogs making the costs on repair and maintenance bills skyrocket, it may be a reality you have to face. If you want to avoid these problems altogether, you need to determine what should stay far, far away from your drains. The more you know, the better your plumbing system.

Common Causes of Drain Clogs

While you may not be a licensed plumber, you should still know what causes clogs for the sake of your property. While all sorts of substances can prove a clog causer, we generally find these 6 to be the most common clog causers:

  1. Cooking Grease: If your commercial property is a restaurant or a place that involves food preparation, you may use cooking grease or oil quite often to make even the smallest dishes. Unfortunately, this will heighten your chances of a drain clog. When grease lingers in your drains, it will stick to the walls of your drains and harden. You should instead discard any excess grease or oil in the regular garbage.
  2. Paper Products: Any paper products (with the exception of toilet paper for the toilet) will prove an easy way to clog your drains. These products may include paper cups, cleaning wipes, cotton balls, and more. Always keep an extra waste bin handy so you can discard these items without any consequence.
  3. Physical Objects: Cell phones, utensils, and who knows what else can accidentally wind up in your drains and creating a major clog. It’s something that seem easily avoidable, but mistakes do happen from time to time. If these objects find themselves deeply lodged into your drains, it’s important to call a professional immediately who has all the right resources to clear the blockage.
  4. Tree Root Intrusion: Tree root intrusion can be difficult and it’s something that can be totally out of your control. If there are a lot of trees near your commercial property, it may be at a much higher risk of experiencing clogs. Fortunately, we can provide you with camera inspection that will determine if tree roots are indeed a cause of concern. We can get them fixed before the roots themselves prove the source of a massive blockage.
  5. Older Drainage Pipes: Your drains will be more likely to experience problems if your drainage pipes are older. If your pipes are made of clay or cast iron, they are outdated and may be more likely to break apart. Drain cleaning in this situation may not be enough. You may need to consider pipe replacement altogether.
