When it comes to commercial plumbing in Denver, the most common problems include leaky fixtures, clogged drains, running or clogged toilets, and sewer odors. Various industries or businesses experience these issues, including restaurants, retailers, and health care facilities. When these are left unattended to long enough, they can spell disaster for the business. Why Do the Problems Occur? Many employees and customers use the plumbing fixtures in commercial facilities every day, which means the plumbing undergoes wear and tear faster, or gets accidentally damaged more often. Clogs in the toilets and urinals can be caused by improper disposal of waste products like toilet papers. The drains of kitchen sinks can develop a buildup of fatty or oily compounds, grease, and food debris, especially in foodservice businesses.

Summer in Colorado is also known as lightning season and the formidable--although often forgotten--threat to your safety should never be underestimated. Lightning strikes can cause massive power surges, around 50,000 degrees F of heat per bolt, which can then result in fires leaving extensive property damages worth up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, as well as deaths and injuries. These grave risks should encourage every homeowner to improve protection at home. Aside from installing lightning protection systems and surge protection devices, you can fix certain elements in your home to reduce or eliminate common fire hazards. Even without lightning, there are certain parts of the home that may be prone to sparking electrical fires, especially if the property was built before the updated building codes.
