Three Easy Steps to a Clear Industrial Drain
As a commercial business owner, you work very hard to keep operations running smoothly. Often, the day-to-day operations take priority. You must address human resource issues, assist high-priority customer complaints, meet clients, and attend in-house staff training. When do you have time to assess the commercial machinery in your business? If you own a restaurant, who is in charge of cleaning expensive machinery, overseeing staff, and ensuring maintenance procedures are followed? It can be very easy to ignore maintenance needs. Staff will tend to their regular duties and forget to perform monthly checks. Your building’s plumbing system must be treated kindly, monitored daily, and protected to avoid damage.
- No Food
In the restaurant industry, food can easily get trapped in the drain system. Your employees must avoid putting plates, dishes, and cookware with food in the sink. They might feel rushed, drop a dish in the sink, and run back to customers. You may have implemented a compost bucket or trash can disposal routine, but employees can quickly forget when they are overwhelmed.
In other industries, employees may wash their food trays, packed dishware, and other food items into the drain. You must teach employees not to put food into sinks or drains. You will want to put up signs to remind employees how to use the drains properly and implement actions if not followed.
- Drain Blocker
It is always a good idea to keep an industrial strength drain unblocker on hand. An industrial drain unblocker is cost-efficient. Unlike single unit items, a commercial drain unblocker can be purchased in bulk. Many commercial drain unblockers have a very long shelf life and can be easily stored at room temperature. Industrial strength drain unblockers degrease and clean drains by degrading them. They will prevent future debris from clinging to the surface which can lead to future clogs. The best industrial drain unblocker can convert fats and oils into soap. It will break down debris, hair, food waste, and grease.
- Cleaning Products
The cleaning products you use to wash dishes and the drain areas are just as important as what you are dumping into the drain. Certain cleaning products can stick to the drains and cause clogs. An enzyme drain cleaner will digest and liquefy grease, hair, fats, and bad odour-producing bacteria. An acid drain cleaner is fast acting and will break down lime cement-based debris. You should also consider what soap your employees are using to wash dishes and other items.
