Blocked drains can very quickly become odorous problems for businesses. When you share a drainage system with many other companies, however, it is often hard to decide exactly whose fault a blockage is or even exactly where the blockage might be. In turn, some blockages can be left for days and weeks, and in turn almost all businesses in the vicinity will suffer as customers choose to give that certain area a wide berth due to the pungent smell.
In turn, the cost of actually dealing with blocked drains can be tiny when compared to the cost of losing business due to such odours. As such, it is wise to look at getting a company to perform high pressure drain jetting the moment you suspect a problem.
Whether you feel the odour is directly related to your own business or not, dealing with the problem can take a very small amount of time and should cost very little. And should you deal with the problem as soon as possible, you are also likely to be able to let those businesses around you know that you have rectified the issue and ask them to do the same should a blockage occur again further down the line.
By working together with businesses around you, you are far more likely to benefit in the long run, and rather than assuming blockages are someone else’s problem and that they should deal with it accordingly, taking the bull by the horns will no doubt save you a huge amount of money and see other businesses returning the favour by using high pressure drain cleaner services later should blockages occur again.
Once such a blockage has been dealt with, it may also be worth discussing with other businesses in the area about ways to avoid blockages in the future. From regular maintenance to avoiding flushing certain things away, making sure you avoid blockages will be the best way to ensure that customers are never put off by the terrible smell that can be produced by blocked drains.
