Commercial drain cleaning requires experience and sometimes special equipment that other drain cleaning companies may be able to bring to the job. The following are a few reasons you need to hire the right plumber for your restaurant’s drain stoppage.
Soft stoppages in your kitchen
A drain stoppage from a sink in a restaurant’s kitchen can be a difficult issue. If the problem is the trap, then the job of sewer trap cleaning can be straightforward, but the issue may be more complex than that. Often, a stoppage in the trap can be temporarily cleared, but then the stoppage reoccurs. The reason for this is that it is a soft stoppage. This is common in a situation when a lot of greasy substances go down the drain. Eventually, the greasy substances will stick to the sides of the drain pipe, and you will have a stoppage. However, even if the clog is removed, the grease can reassemble further down the line. The way this is prevented is with a water pressure technique rather than a common rotor coil that is seen in many residential applications.
The lifespan of a drain pipe for a restaurant is not as long as those in a residential home. For this reason, it is important that a drain cleaning service have the ability and skill to inspect a drain line. Without this, a drain clog that is due to a problem with the drain pipe will only create a continuing issue with clogs. A plumber will not only be able to clear a line, but inspect and replace the drain pipe if necessary. This type of inspection can be done externally, but plumbers also have the ability to inspect the drain line internally with small cameras.
A knowledge of commercial drain systems
The plumbing system of a restaurant may differ significantly from a person’s home, and knowing this will decrease the time it takes to understand exactly what the problem is and where it is located. In addition, a solution to the problem will be apparent, so the job can begin quickly.
Above all, a plumbing company that has a lot of experience working with restaurants understands the importance of solving clogged drains quickly, so a restaurant can stay open and make a profit. This type of plumber will make it a priority to visit your restaurant and fix the drain issue quickly.
