In your factory, you may have a lot of toilets and sinks in place to help ensure that there are ample facilities for all of your employees. Of course, it is probably important to you to make sure that all of your facilities are working as they are supposed to, and you probably want to prevent things like toilet clogs. These are a few tips that can help you do so.

1. Keep Plumbing in Good Shape

In a bustling factory, the plumbing probably gets heavily used. This is even true in the bathrooms, where toilets might constantly be flushed and sinks might constantly be turned off and on because of the number of employees that you have using the restrooms. Making sure that you have the plumbing in your factory's bathrooms regularly checked by an industrial plumber can help you stay on top of clogs, plumbing pipe issues and more. A good industrial plumber can also help you with things like letting you know when old toilets and other plumbing necessities need to be replaced.

2. Make Sure There are Plenty of Trash Cans

If there aren't enough trash cans in the bathrooms in your factory, then employees might find themselves tossing things in the toilet that should not be tossed. To help prevent toilet clogs as well as keeping the bathroom neat and clean by helping to discourage employees from tossing garbage on the floor, make sure that there are plenty of trash cans near the sink and in each stall. Then, work with your cleaning crew to help ensure that these trash cans are dumped regularly to help prevent a mess in your bathrooms.

3. Put Up Signs

Lastly, consider putting up signs in the bathrooms that help discourage your employees from throwing certain items in the toilets. For example, your factory employees might wear disposable gloves while they're on the job, and you'll want to make sure that they know that these should not be tossed into the toilet, since they can cause clogs. You may additionally want to put up signage asking employees not to put their sanitary napkins or paper towels in the toilets. You can have these signs professionally made, or you can print them out in the office and hang them up.

As you can see, there are things that you can do to help prevent toilet clogs in your factory. If you are looking for additional tips, contact a good industrial plumber, such as from Cool Air Mechanical, Inc.
