Is Your Gas Line in Trouble?
One thing that every business owner should have in common is the commitment to keeping their establishment safe for any patron or employee who steps onto the site. To protect both clients and workers, always be wary of any signs of a gas line fault. Natural gas is both colorless and odorless, but there are still ways to tell if there is a problem.
Examples of signs that a commercial gas line needs an inspection include:
- The presence of a gray or white powdery substance on the line or nearby it
- Indoor or outdoor plants that suddenly turn yellow, wither, or die within a matter of days
- Visible signs of corrosion or holes on the pipe
- Unusual noises from the line, like hissing or squealing
- A foul smell of rotten eggs from a substance called mercaptan, which is released when natural gas leaks
How Often to Schedule Check-Ups for Your Commercial Plumbing System
The advice of most plumbers when it comes to residential systems is to have networks checked about once a year, or even once every other year. This is enough to ensure that a small building serving a limited number of people is functioning normally. For businesses, however, the number of needed inspections can vary greatly. A business that only offers a restroom to staff members would need less maintenance than a large department store with multiple public bathrooms.
Depending on the type of company, along with the number of employees and customers, commercial clients might need two inspections a year, or two a month. Because the variance is so great between businesses, it is better not to guess and risk an unexpected plumbing failure. Speak to our team about establishing an inspection program for your business.
