And since it is exposed to different waste
materials and various substances, it is also
prone to clogging.
4
With constant cleaning though, you should be able
to keep your basement floor drain clog-free and
the flow of sewage smooth.
5
But when regular drain cleaning fails, you should
be able to clear the blockage with the help of
these tools and ingredients. Follow this guide
and unclog the basement drain!
6
  • Wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands from
    bacteria. Youll be dealing with a drain pipe so
    might as well protect yourself from harmful
    substances that may compromise your health.

7
  • If theres any standing water on your basement
    floor, scoop it out with a bucket.

8
  • When youre done getting rid of standing water on
    the floor, go find your clean-out access. It
    provides access to the pipes so that they can be
    inspected and cleaned without any trouble.

9
  • Remove the clean-outs lid with your handy dandy
    wrench.

10
  • Carefully insert your plumbing snake into the
    pipe. Turn the crank clockwise to push it further
    inside. Dont forget to pour water while youre
    doing this.

11
  • The water will add pressure to the snake and help
    it progress inside the pipe.

12
  • Once you reach the clog, keep on turning the
    plumbing snakes crank clockwise. Doing so will
    break the clog. Keep on doing this several times
    until you no longer feel any resistance inside
    the pipe.

13
  • When youre done getting rid of the clog, slowly
    pull the snake out. Have a bucket ready by this
    time in order for you to dispose waste materials
    that will stick to the snake.

14
  • After removing the blockage, pour a pot or a
    kettle of hot water into the drain. Doing so will
    wash leftover particles and sediments away.
