Do you work in a customer-facing business, like a restaurant or hotel? How about an office building, nursing home or factory? No matter where you work, or what type of business you own, you must have working toilets for employees, customers and anyone else to use. Because commercial toilets and urinals are often in these high-traffic buildings, they're used much more than residential toilets are. This means they can be subject to more issues, including clogs and other damage, than fixtures in homes.
As any business owner knows, when toilets are out of order for one reason or another, it can cause serious problems. Leaking or flooding can lead to property damage and high water bill charges, while overflowing waste water is considered unsafe and must be taken care of immediately. Roto-Rooter experts can solve all types of commercial, industrial and municipal sewer and drain problems, including those related to commercial toilet drains.
If your toilet drain isn't working properly, you'll want it repaired immediately to get back to business. Roto-Rooter specializes in emergency services - our plumbing and drain experts are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They can solve any problem with the drains in your building so your business is back to normal as quickly as possible. Our list of commercial drain services for toilets includes:
Commercial drain & sewer repair
A Roto-Rooter plumbing and drain professional can discover where your commercial toilet drain issue stems from and whether it's caused by a blockage in the drain or an issue with the sewer line the drain connects to. If the problem lies within the sewer line, he or she will need to perform one of our commercial sewer line repair services. Sewer line repair is traditionally done by locating the damaged or corroded area of the pipe and digging a trench to gain access to it.
However, Roto-Rooter can also provide trenchless repair, which causes less damage to the landscaping, parking lots, sidewalks and other surrounding areas of your building. The trenchless sewer repair services Roto-Rooter offers include pipe bursting and pipe relining, both of which can be done using small access holes.
Plumbing odor questions
Sure, bathrooms sometimes smell unpleasant. But in a customer-facing company, such as a restaurant or shopping center, odors can negatively affect business. If you're noticing odors in your commercial bathrooms that seem to be out of the ordinary, you may want to have a Roto-Rooter expert take a look. In the meantime, check out these frequently asked questions to see if you can solve your toilet odor issue on your own:
There is a foul odor every time a toilet is flushed. What's the problem and what can I do about it?
If you or anyone else notices a foul odor when a particular toilet is flushed, it's likely because the toilet isn't sealed properly to the floor. When a toilet is flushed, water moves down the toilet drain plumbing and pushes the air trapped in the fixture out of the way - in this case the air is pushed out from under the toilet and into the room. You or a Roto-Rooter professional will need to reseal the toilet to the floor.
How can I eliminate general foul odors?
If your bathroom seems to smell foul at all times, it's possible the problem lies in a trap attached to one of your drains - traps need to be filled with water to keep odors from creeping from the plumbing into the room. Pour a gallon of water down each drain in your bathroom (toilet, sinks, floor drains, etc.) to fill up those traps and keep odors contained.
