You’ve heard us talk recently about our partnerships with local restaurants. So we want to share a little more about the importance of this type of partnership, not just for us, but for successful restaurants.
If you’re a restaurant owner, you’re constantly working towards greater customer satisfaction and food quality. Staying up to code greatly impacts your two biggest concerns. Don’t neglect to stay updated on plumbing codes though.
The plumbing system of your commercial kitchen is vital to business. One broken faucet or clogged drain can create chaos behind the scenes. When things aren’t flowing well (pun intended) in the kitchen, everyone from staff to customers will be affected. Plumbing problems can create longer wait times and rushed staff, which could lead to lower revenue and even a bad review.
St. Matthews Plumbing offers comprehensive commercial plumbing services to cover all commercial kitchen plumbing needs. From quick service calls for an emergent problem to regular maintenance, our plumbers are trained professionals who can quickly solve plumbing problems with minimum interruption to your business.
Consequences of Plumbing Problems for Restaurants
If the first few paragraphs above weren’t enough to convince you of the importance of proper commercial plumbing, allow us to elaborate. Leaky pipes are the most common plumbing problem we see. It may not seem that serious, but over time they can cause harmful health effects since mold and mildew thrive in damp environments.
If you have leaky pipes and find a significant amount of mildew and mold, the indoor air quality will be greatly impacted especially as it relates to the health and comfort of occupants. Even restaurant-goers who typically come and go in an hour’s time can experience negative effects. Before this happens, ensure your facility has quality plumbing that’s up to code.
Now, let’s talk backflow prevention. Backflow happens when water flows in the opposite direction from its intended path and can pose serious health problems by contaminating potable (safe) water. The Kentucky State Plumbing Code requires backflow preventers to be installed in all commercial buildings and for all preventers to be tested annually. We do ALL of this for restaurants or any commercial business. We can install, repair, inspect, and even submit the documentation for you so that your backflow prevention device remains certified with the city.
Leaky faucets, a clogged drain, or whatever else may be the problem can quickly become very expensive. So problems should be addressed within 24 hours of noticing. Having a direct line to us, as your partner, for quick emergency or maintenance services is very important to your line of work.
