There are some very good reasons for setting up a regular maintenance plan with commercial plumbing contractors. In employee surveys, one of the most common complaints about the workplace is the condition of the restrooms they have to use on a daily basis. With regular maintenance you can eliminate this distraction, helping your employees become more involved and productive.
Professional plumbing services can increase the overall cleanliness of the workplace. Cleanliness and hygiene go hand in hand, and problems like clogged drains, mold and unsightly stains in sinks and toilets reduce the sanitary conditions employees expect in the workplace. Since healthier employees are happier employees, keeping your plumbing in good condition means higher morale in the office.
Odors Affect Attitudes
Odors coming out of the drains of washbasins or other drains can be a huge distraction to your employees. Regardless of the type of business you have, plumbing maintenance will eliminate odors related to drains that don’t work properly, standing water, and other issues.
LIstening to the annoying drip, drip, drip of a faucet in need of repair or replacement reduces productivity for those in the vicinity. In many cases, leaky faucets are easily repaired by replacing washers or valves, but ignoring the leak may lead to more complicated issues that are more costly and time-consuming to work out.
Leaky plumbing often leads to health concerns in the restroom stemming from stagnant water, mold, and mildew. With commercial plumbing maintenance, leaks and other plumbing problems can be identified early enough to make repairs before potentially unhealthy conditions arise. Just as cleaning your ductwork periodically reduces airborne pathogens, clean and sanitary plumbing reduces the spread of common illnesses, and may even improve the breathing conditions of those who suffer from asthma and other respiratory concerns.
Cleanliness Promotes Efficiency
Organization and routine are at the heart of high morale and productivity. When your staff is constantly faced with drains that don’t work, offensive odors, standing water, and other plumbing issues, it affects their ability to concentrate and focus on the work at hand. Plumbing maintenance often pays for itself over time by allowing your workers to feel safer, healthier, and more appreciated by their employer.
Commercial plumbing services such as regular maintenance help keep your business operating efficiently and smoothly. It can reduce absenteeism, but it can also improve the impression customers and clients have of your establishment. In this way, plumbing maintenance may lead to bigger, better sales.
