Who to Call for Top-Notch Commercial Drainage Services

One of the most important aspects of owning a commercial property or business is having peace of mind about your plumbing system. Whether your commercial property is a bank, a place of business, a school, a shopping center, or anything else, your life will get very complicated without good drainage.

If you know that you're in need of commercial drainage services, contact us at 1-800-Plumber + Air and we'll be there. If, however, you're contemplating adding additional plumbing or want to have your drains and pipes checked, we're still the team to call.



What are Commercial Drainage Services?

Commercial drainage services can mean any number of things related to plumbing.

New Construction

If you're building a new commercial building and need someone to install your plumbing system, contact us for a quote. Every building with a kitchen or bathroom will require drain lines, water lines, and other forms of plumbing. It's important to hire someone to do the job right the first time so that you won't need plumbing repairs or drainage services down the road.

Remodels

Adding onto an existing commercial building or redoing the exterior is much different than new construction. You'll likely have drain lines that need to be redone and installed differently than before. Many plumbing companies won't even mess with remodeling jobs because of the added difficulty. 1-800-Plumber + Air, however, welcomes the challenge.

Service and Repairs

The most common reason that people need drainage services, however, is because of regularly scheduled service visits and fixing repairs. Like all parts of your home, your drain lines aren't meant to last forever. They also aren't immune to clogs, damage, and a variety of other issues, which means that drainage repairs and services are usually in high demand.

Common Commercial Drainage Problems

While most people associate drain problems with houses and apartments, commercial properties are just as likely to experience them as houses. Here are some of the top drainage service problems that often need repairs.

Slow Drainage

In most cases, drains don't simply work fine one day and then overflow the next. There's usually a buildup leading to a completely clogged drain and one of the main symptoms is that you'll see slow drainage. Slow drainage is often visible in your toilet, bathtub, or kitchen and bathroom sinks, and the problem will get progressively worse.


You will also likely hear gurgling or bubbling sounds as well as foul odors when you have slow drainage. The reason for this is that your drainage and sewage pipes are connected. Therefore, if there's a problem with your water drains, there might also be a problem with your sewage drains.

Clogs and Overflows

Once you notice slow drainage, it's only a matter of time before you have an overflow. The main reason for slowly draining water is because of a clog somewhere in one of your drain pipes. The clog will continue to worsen the more you use the drain, and an overflow is inevitable. Overflows may happen continuously or they may occur with varying frequency as the clog periodically worsens and improves.


Clogs are almost always the result of putting food, toys, hair, or other items down a drain that isn't meant to handle those types of items. You may be able to use a home remedy to repair certain clogs, but excessive ones will require the skills of a professional plumber.

Root Growth

Depending on where your commercial property is located, it's possible that tree roots have grown into your drain pipes. Tree roots grow indiscernibly in all directions, and with incredible strength. Given enough time, it's very possible for a tree root to grow into your drain line and break or clog it.

Drain Repiping

If you have an older commercial building, it's also possible that the drain lines were installed incorrectly. When this happens, the system might work ok for a time, but problems are inevitable. To determine if this is the root of your drainage problems, you'll have to schedule an appointment with a plumbing professional and have them inspect your system.

How to Tell if I Need Commercial Drainage Services

Unfortunately, it isn't always obvious when you need to enlist commercial drainage services. Sure, you're constructing a new building or remodeling an old one, plumbing services are a given. For plumbing repairs and services, however, the need isn't always that evident or urgent. Here are a few ways to know if your commercial property is draining properly.

Random Mud Puddles Around Your Property

It's normal to have mud puddles after a rainstorm. If you have random puddles that don't disappear and aren't always the result of rain, however, it could be a sign that your sewage pipes are broken.

Dampness or Mildew in Your Building

Dampness and mildew inside your building could be a definite sign that your drain lines are clogged or broken.

Permanent Wet Spots on Asphalt

Just as mud puddles that appear randomly and don't go away are a bad sign, so are wet spots on your asphalt. A broken sewer pipe could also cause enough pressure to eventually break the asphalt or crack it.

Water Stains or Cracks in Your Basement

If you have a basement on your commercial property and start to notice water stains or cracks in the foundation, drain problems are a possibility.


It's vital that you pay attention to every aspect of your commercial property and keep an eye out for possible changes. Drainage warning signs aren't always obvious, but they're there if you know what to look for.
