Important Floor Drain Maintenance Tips For Your
Home
  • Floor drains resemble the drains you see in
    showers and bathtubs since they are flush with
    the surface, but actual floor drains are
    generally found in garages, laundry rooms,
    basement floors, swimming pools, patios and
    driveways.
  • Floor drains are placed at anyplace where fast,
    efficient water drainage is required.

5
  • Since they are often overlooked, most people
    dont think about floor drain maintenance until
    its too late.
  • Many problems with floor drains can be avoided
    with simple care and pre-planning.

  • Following these easy floor drain maintenance tips
    that will ensure that your floor drains will do
    their job when you want them to and prevent
    flooding and the expensive water damage left
    behind.

Top 3 Floor Drain Maintenance Tips

1. Fill Traps Often
  • Indoor floor drains capture overflow from
    toilets, sinks, tubs, water heaters, washing
    machines, bathroom tubs, etc.
  • Outdoor floor drains quickly move out all the
    water away from the surfaces area during and
    after heavy rainstorms.

9
  • Whether indoors or outdoors, floor drains are
    formed to efficiently and carefully direct water
    to a drain or municipal storm drain so that the
    floor stays dry.
  • The main purpose of traps is to prevent sewer
    odors from making their way through the drain and
    into your house.

10
  • Fill these traps regularly to ensure they are
    working as they should - Pour a gallon of water
    down in every floor drain in your house.
  • The water will fill the trap, building a barrier
    between your home and drain system.

2. Clear Clogs Quickly
  • Various types of debris collect on the floor,
    from pet hair to dirt bunnies, all of it runs the
    risk of ending up and probably clogging our floor
    drain.
  • The first indication of a drain clogging is if it
    is draining slowly works.

12
  • If you catch the clog soon, clean it up as
    quickly as possible to overcome the chance of
    flooding.
  • Typically, a few strong drain pumps with a
    plunger can clear that minor clog.

13
  • If not, try pouring a solution of vinegar and
    baking soda down the drain.
  • If you have a drain drill, feed the cable into
    the drain until you meet resistance, then turn
    the cable and try to roll back whatever is
    clogging the drain.
