How to Prepare Your Pipes When Restrictions Lift
More businesses are starting to reopen, due to restrictions starting to ease and adapt to taking utmost precautions within the workplace for a safe environment. It is important that not only do business take the steps to ensure they are COVIDSafe externally but to also consider internally, such as your pipes. For most business not operating for a few weeks such as office buildings, gyms and other facilities may have led to water to sit in the pipes, which can over a long period cause serious health risks. Water that sits in a building’s pipes for too long can be potentially dangerous to not only people but also your drains. For building managers who haven’t been running water or where having pipe issues before the pandemic, the water sitting in your pipes may already be causing a significant problem.
