The Importance of Proper Plumbing and Drainage Structure and Maintenance in School Facilities

22 March 2018

All types of residential, commercial and industrial buildings need proper plumbing and drainage structure and maintenance done on a regular basis, especially school facilities. Actually, school buildings need regular plumbing maintenance more often than other types of buildings. The reason for this is to maintain high levels of hygiene for schools’ population of children, by ensuring that water is always available and that drainage structures function properly.

Basically, schools typically use more water than other types of facilities each month, especially for large schools that have over 600 students. The importance of proper plumbing and drainage maintenance can’t be over stated as schools have more piping systems and drains than multi-unit residential properties and commercial buildings, with hospitals and medical facilities being the exceptions.

Because schools have complex plumbing and drainage systems, only qualified and licensed commercial plumbers with experience should be hired to maintain and repair them.
