How the Little Things Add Up: Get these 3 Hidden Plumbing Issues Checked to Save On Your Monthly Utilities
It's an understatement to say that everything needs to add up when it comes to maintaining your business, and the commercial property that you operate in. Likewise, your utilities will add up throughout the year, creating a sizable portion of your overheads that you simply won't be able to ignore. Instead of sweeping these periodic amounts under the rug while trying to maximise your profitability through other areas of your business, have you considered how you could be saving more by addressing any hidden issues of your plumbing which you might not have previously considered ?
Being in our business for as long as we have, we can most certainly point out at least three areas of any commercial property that would be worth having our plumber take a look at. Most people typically assume that saving on your utilities will largely involve being more disciplined with your water use and any waste produced as a result of it, but you should always consider the value that timely property maintenance can bring if you've been thinking of minimising your overheads. Read on to see the top three areas that we'd recommend you get our plumbers to take a look at during your next commercial maintenance request.
Roofing and Guttering Can Cause Leaks and Hefty Replacement
There's a reason why we emphasise roofing and guttering as a specialisation among our services. This is mainly because of how much it could cost you to have your roofing and guttering replaced because of wear and tear. We've easily seen these situations requiring property owners to spend upwards of $10,000 just to replace old roofing and guttering that was causing underlying water damage to structural areas of their property. Left that way for long enough, there's no telling what kind of disaster this could spell for a business!
Worn Out Tiles May Be Concealing Underlying Issue
Tiling's not an easy job, and here's an important reason why. If you've ever noticed poorly-tiled surfaces, or grouting that's worn or incomplete, it might be prudent for you to consider what might lie beneath such surfaces. Tiled surfaces often provide a form of water-resistance that helps to maintain the structural integrity of your property: so imagine what could be developing below an improperly-tiled surface that's letting water seep through!
Poorly Maintained Hot Water Units Can Be Costing You More with Every Bill
Because most hot water units have a functional life of between 8 - 10 years, it's easy to understand why people tend to overlook their operability. Assuming that you're the type that gets your hot water units serviced frequently, you could easily extend this functional life by up to 20 years. However, replacements might cost you more - especially if you're running a hot water unit that's been neglected for awhile.
