Important Winter Plumbing Tips

Winter is a magical time of year. With the snow blanketing the earth and the chill of the crisp winter air tingling through your body it is easy to forget that you need to take some real steps toward protecting your commercial property from plumbing risks. 

Plumbing services are probably the last thing on your mind during the winter months, but it should be at the top of your list!

When you fail to take care of winter plumbing issues you are making your commercial space vulnerable to several risks, including: 

  • Frozen Pipes 
  • Clogging 
  • Brittle/Cracked Pipes 
  • Drainage Issues 
  • Water Damages 


You do not have the time, money, or headspace to worry about thousands of dollars in water property damages! That’s why we are sharing these practical tips that you can utilise to safeguard your commercial space against costly winter plumbing risks: 

  • Take time to thoroughly check your commercial property for leaks, damages, or cracks. If you have hoses, make sure they are unhooked. 
  • If you have a hot water heater, then take the time to flush your water heater to get rid of build-up. 
  • You should not only know how to shut off all the water valves in your commercial space, but you should also know where all of them are! 
  • Hire a professional for preventive building maintenance to inspect pipes, drains, faucets, and other aspects of your commercial plumbing system. 


As you can see, there are many things that you can do as a property owner to ensure the integrity of your plumbing system during those cold winter months. But sometimes plumbing issues are just too complex to be handled in-house, which is why hiring professional plumbing services is the best course of action.
