What Is A Commercial Drainage Contractor?

Regular blocked drains can happen everywhere, but for commercial businesses and premises they tend to happen on a larger scale with larger knock on effects like loss of business. Large-scale blocked drains, sewage overflows, backflow issues, burst pipes and stormwater drainage problems can wreak havoc to any large building or business. The effects of temporarily closing, risking health hazards and licenses for public safety as well as inconvenience to staff, customers and lost revenue can be huge. Specialist drainage contractors have the ability to fix blocked drains but on a much larger scale with the skill set of designing new drainage solutions and installing them.

Drainage Equipment

Most regular domestic plumbers won’t have the tools or experience necessary to tackle large scale blocked, collapsed or upgraded drainage requirements. This involves heavy machinery, earthworks, concrete cutting and tarmacking as well as fixing the initial problem itself. All this requires more tools, more experience and also project management to work with larger budgets, inside those budgets and to tight deadlines due to all the inconvenience and potential lost business.

Commercial Drainage Skills

These are some of the most important elements to be successful on large-scale drainage projects:

  • Heavy duty machinery
  • Drainage design ability
  • Project management
  • Trench digging
  • Earthworks & excavation
  • Ability to work as part of a team
  • Ability to work within timelines
  • Ability to work under pressure
  • Ability to work inside budgets

In short, this only comes from experience so it’s important for all businesses and commercial customers to only hire drainage contractors that can do the job properly in and around Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.

Plumbing Maintenance

Dealing with a large-scale plumbing and drainage issue will be inconvenient and expensive no matter what, and whilst having good insurance will cover the expense, it likely won’t cover the inconvenience or lost revenue. This shows the value of having regular plumbing maintenance for all businesses like:

  • Hotels & guest houses
  • Restaurants, bars and hospitality
  • Sports fields & clubs
  • Govt buildings
  • Shops & retail outlets
  • Warehouses and factories
  • Residential apartment complexes
