Owning a small business during COVID involves making new and difficult decisions.
Decisions on open and close times, pricing, employees, and in-store traffic are just a few of the choices that are constantly on everyone’s minds. Your liquid waste stream services are just one more component and this has both financial and safety implications. Stopping or pausing services with your provider—at first—sounds like an easy money-saving opportunity. While it saves some money upfront, both the long and short-term impact causes larger financial problems, as well as putting your staff and customers at risk.
Taking stock of your septic and grease waste systems is either going to be a quick review or a more thorough inspection depending on how large your system is. Once that’s done, you need to prioritize which regular frequency services to keep or postpone until later. If you need to optimize your septic and/or grease removal services and currently use a service provider for multiple aspects of maintenance, consider taking a look at these suggestions.
Preventative maintenance is one service that every small business owner needs for their septic system. In order to avoid costly repairs and possible shutdown, protecting your system with the help of septic experts is a must. Preventing issues with your drainage system or leach field saves you money, time, and possible customers over time. Having to close for an extended period of time to make expensive repairs is not something many businesses can afford during this time.
Depending on your line of business, grease trap cleaning is another must during COVID. In addition to avoiding health hazards, cleaning your inside and outside grease traps increases your system’s efficiency and allows your business to operate at its full capacity. Restaurants and businesses in the hospitality industry should prioritize this service. Failure to maintain grease containment systems could result in damage to your drainage system and leach field if your business uses a septic system.
In certain circumstances, small septic repairs may be a service to postpone during this period. However, small is very relative. If your business is suffering from a drainpipe with a mechanical defect, such as a break or separation, you may be forced to shut down for the worst-case scenario – having to excavate and repair the drain line. This type of repair is necessary and may cause you to consider downtime that could cost your business important income. Luckily there’s an alternative, without extensive digging, that fixes leaks.
Business pipelining doesn’t require a business to close, which saves time and money. Wind River Environmental utilizes state-of-the-art cameras to inspect your business’ drainage system to determine if it is a candidate for pipe relining. This new technology identifies any repair work needed or trouble spots within the system. The pipelining process provides an alternative solution that mitigates downtime to your business and solves the problem with a worry-free 10-year warranty.
Other services to postpone in favor of pipelining are pipe replacement or tree root removal. Replacement requires a shutdown and fixing tree root invasion also requires digging. Pipelining protects against tree roots and replicates the structural strength of a new pipe.
