How you care for your equipment changes throughout the year. Your equipment faces a range of weather conditions, from blazing sun to subzero temperatures. Depending on where you live, you might even see both of these extremes within a calendar year! As the Northern Hemisphere heads into autumn, it’s time to start preparing for cold weather conditions.
With the many strange and gross things that end up down the toilet, drain cleaning isn’t a job for the squeamish. It’s also not a job for the careless. Drain cleaners are exposed to a variety of dangerous pathogens and substances in the course of their work. Preventing contact with these hazards, and maintaining a firm barrier between “clean” spaces and “dirty” spaces, is vital to their health.
The most important skill a drain cleaner can have is, obviously, clearing drains. But customer service is a close second. It may not be your favorite part (that’s sharing crazy job photos in your Facebook group of choice), but it’s a vital part of the job, particularly for smaller shops.
