There's no doubt that business owners have plenty to worry about: payroll, taxes, and managing the day-to-day operations to ensure the lights stay on are all everyday realities for business owners of every size. However, lost by the wayside are often preventative plans for things like data losses, emergency situations, and even plumbing problems.
In order to prevent costly plumbing costs and embarrassing disruption of business operations, it's wise to consult with a professional plumber to assess your company's plumbing situation and create a plan to ensure things continue to flow smoothly.
Last April, Wal-Mart closed five locations due to plumbing issues across four different states to address significant plumbing issues. According to reports, these stores had the most plumbing issues in their respective regions. Work on the plumbing included repairs to flooring, replacing sewer lines, and repairing flooded sections, but the company did not provide a total cost of the repairs.
Needless to say, closure of a business location for any length of time due to preventable plumbing issues shouldn't be an acceptable option for business owners. The cost of repairs is secondary compared to the loss of sales and productivity, leaving some businesses closed for good if the problem persists.
