Drain Clogs at the home can be a nuance but for commercial properties, clogs can be a potential disaster. Whereas a normal home may only have to deal with a few people, a commercial drain many have to deal with hundreds of people daily. Whether you’re a commercial property, office, or restaurant avoiding drain clogs as much as possible is a must. Here are some tips to prevent clogs in your commercial drains.
Educate both your Employees and Guest
Educating both your employees and guests on what should and should not go down the drains can be extremely useful in preventing clogs. In the kitchens be sure to remind your employees to avoid putting things such as grease, stringy food, eggshells, and pasta down the drain. Keep a trash can next to your sinks to make plate-scraping easier and avoiding your employees throwing food down the sink out of convenience. In commercial bathrooms put up signs as reminders that only toilet paper should be flushed and make sure trash cans are next to your hand towels.
Install mesh screens or drain traps
The simple install of a mesh screen or a drain trap on your drains that see a lot of action can prevent build up in your pipes. In Addition to the install, regularly cleaning these on a weekly or monthly basis will reduce the potential of a drain clog. Down the road, this can save you both the headache and cost fixing a slow or clogged drain.
Regular Drain Maintenance
On a monthly basis, you should carefully check your drains for excess build up. In addition, taking apart your p traps, checking, and cleaning them can be useful. Also having your lines annually checked for potential clogging build-up can be extremely useful. Though these tips can help prevent some commercial drain clogs they will not stop all your drain clogs. If you’re having drain issues be sure to call the experts at Smith Drain Solutions.
