Having sufficient hot water, at a hot enough temperature, is absolutely critical in a commercial property. Businesses are required to have hot running water in their bathrooms to ensure that thorough and effective hand-washing is possible. And if your business has anything to do with food, there are strict requirements regarding hot water. In Georgia, every commercial establishment must have water of at least 100°F for hand-washing, and food service establishments must have water at 150°F for dishwashing and at least 165°F for sanitizing. You don’t want to be facing legal repercussions for violating these codes. Is your business’s water heater doing the job well enough? What factors should you consider when deciding if you need to replace it?

When something is stopping up a drain in your home, don’t you wish you had x-ray vision and could simply see through the pipes? Wouldn’t it be amazing to see exactly what is causing the clog, and where it is, so that you could target it precisely and make sure you’ve cleared it away completely? Especially when a clog is deeper in your plumbing, so you can’t easily dislodge it with a plunger or a hand-cranked drain snake, wouldn’t it be miraculous to see the inside your pipes?
Well, when you hire high-tech professional plumbers for drain cleaning in Johns Creek, GA, they can do exactly that! Video pipe inspection, a method of inserting a thin flexible line with a tiny camera on the end, is just one of the reasons why having your drains cleaned by a professional rather than an amateur is so important.
