If you own or manage a large apartment building or even multiple large apartment building in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, you know that plumbing related issues are far more common than in smaller buildings and single family homes. This is due to the fact that your buildings are experiencing heavy-duty usage each year. In essence, when a lot of people turn on the sink, shower, and tub, and flush the toilets on a daily basis, there are bound to be problems. Typically speaking, the most common issue in apartment buildings and other commercial buildings is clogged toilets.
These clogs happen for many reasons, including the build up of paper and other items in the drain pipes. Unfortunately, this situation creates the potential for a toilet or multiple toilets to back up. If that happens, it causes a tremendous mess, both in the unit and the apartments below and around the unit in question. In addition, the drains in the sinks, showers, and tubs, can become clogged when material is caught in the pipe. The drains can become clogged when materials build up over long periods of time within the plumbing pipe walls.
Kitchen sink drains can become easily clogged when tenants pour grease and food down them. When toilets clog, most building owners or managers call in maintenance to plunge the toilet. In some cases, the maintenance person will snake the toilet. Although these methods may temporarily dislodge the clog, they do not eliminate the problem from occurring again. When sinks, showers, and tubs clog, the maintenance person will typically pour a commercial drain cleaner down the drain in order to resolve the problem. Although liquid drain cleaners may take care of the issue, once again it is only fixed on a temporary basis.
So how can you fix clogged drains on a more permanent basis? The answer is simple. Hire a company that specializes in hydro jetting services for apartment buildings. If you’re not familiar with it, hydro jetting is actually a process that is used to thoroughly clean the interior of plumbing pipes using high-pressure water. In essence, the water flows through the plumbing pipes and removes clogs, and the build up of materials that form inside the pipes. Hydro jetting flushed the plumbing pipes of clogs and material buildup that leads to clogs. It is fast, efficient, and cost effective.
If you schedule hydro jetting services on a regular basis, it will eliminate plumbing clogs and plumbing backups that are caused by the build up of materials inside the pipes. That means you should schedule hydro jetting services for your apartment building or building at least once per year.
