What to Look for in a Commercial Plumbing Specialist

Monday, March 7th, 2016 at 11:00 am

Commercial plumbing systems are much different than residential systems in a number of ways. They must often support more people for starters, and in the case of buildings with more than one floor they need to compensate for bathrooms and other facilities on higher floors. In the case of restaurants and other food preparation services, the plumbing needs to accommodate the health codes and be able to support a fully operating business. Those are just a few of the distinctions, and where there are plenty of plumbers here in Lacey, WA, not all of them have the expertise in commercial plumbing that you need to do the job right. If you own a business or manage a commercial space, you want a commercial plumbing specialist to solve your issues, not simply a “plumber.” Here are some things to look for in such a specialist.

  • Timeliness. When trouble arrives, you can’t afford to simply sit on it the way you might is a residential building. A non-functioning toilet or troublesome dishwasher makes the environment unappealing for employees and customers alike, and the longer you wait, the more it will cost you in lost business.
  • Size of the Operation. A good commercial plumbing service will have the resources required to handle a larger plumbing call, including personnel who can handle the issue. That way, you won’t be left waiting for days while an understaffed service tries to get the job down.
  • Handles Installation as Well as Repairs. Commercial plumbing needs to be installed in different levels of the building and with far more complexity than residential buildings. A plumber with installation experience will be better able to handle repairs on your commercial site than a plumber who only handles repairs.
