CCTV [Video] Inspections
The piping in your office building or business is something that does a lot of dirty work, gets no praise, and is forgotten until something goes wrong. As soon as things start to back up, piping blockages can be a serious problem for your business. A bad sewage blockage will result in your business being closed for days, even weeks, as it is cleaned and the bacteria left over from the sewage flooding must be dealt with.
A blockage can happen in any number of ways, and knowing what kind of blockage you are dealing with is very important. If you have a blockage from something that has been flushed, or chemicals that have collected in the line, both can be dealt with in different ways.
How do you know what you need to do with a blockage if you can’t see the blockage?
We live in an amazing time and these days, we can take cameras nearly anywhere and that includes into the pipes under your building.
Using closed-circuit televisions and small cameras, it is possible to take cameras directly into the lines where you can learn not only what is blocking the line, but the overall condition of the line. Why is this important? Well, if you have a line that has many cracks in it, you know that it is eventually going to collapse and that is going to lead to a serious problem. By having CCTV inspections done, you will know about the weakening pipes and you can begin to plan for it. You can put money aside, you can schedule a period of time when the office is closed and you can prevent a lot of lost time and money by knowing about the problem and dealing with it. If you wait until the line collapses, you are going to have a serious problem on your hand and you will have to deal with it immediately.
The SeeSnake Video Inspection System allows us to pinpoint the exact location of the blockage, but also determine if there are any issues with the piping or the drains. Closed-circuit television cameras ensure that inspections are done in such a way that the blockage can be determined, and wearing on piping can be observed.
Knowing the type of blockage helps you deal with it in the right way, and that can save you a lot of money, and lost time. Lost time with any commercial business is lost profits.
One of the best things about the CCTV inspections done on your commercial building is that they are a non-destructive method of inspecting the pipes. It is also an incredibly affordable option and it prevents you from having pipes dug up, or costly inspections done through the actual sewer itself.
If you want to make sure your business is not going to grind to a halt because of a blockage in the sewer line, then you need to have a CCTV inspection done today. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and it is as true for medicine as it is for sewer line blockages.
