Preventative Maintenance to Prevent Floor Drain Backing Up
Many homes have floor drains in their basements and garages to keep excess water from flooding and causing damages. Floor drains have a trap below them that needs to remain filled with water or else the sewer gases and odors can escape into your house creating an unpleasant odor. We recommend having your floor drain looked at for routine maintenance once every two to three years. This will ensure that your drain will be cleaned every two years and can reduce the risk of a clogged floor drain. If your trap beneath your drain doesn’t contain water, call ASAP Appliance & Plumbing Services. Perhaps you have a clogged floor drain deep within and we know just how to fix it.
Here are some tips to reduce the chances of having your floor drain clogged:
- Keep your trap seal full: Since your basement floor drain doesn’t get used very often, it is important to keep some water in it to prevent sewer gases and odors from coming up and invading your home with horrific smells. Pour a bucket of water down it every so often to keep it full.
- Test your sump pump frequently: Testing your sump pump only needs to happen once a year or every two years. It is best to test it before the rainy season comes and backs everything up. Having your sump pump checked with a plumber from ASAP is the smartest thing to do as we know how to properly test it to make sure it works.
A clogged floor drain can leave standing water on your floor ruining your electronics and valuables. If you start to notice your floor drain not draining properly, call ASAP Appliance & Plumbing Services right away and start trying to unclog it yourself before it becomes a major backup. We advise you to not wedge anything down your drain to unclog it that could make it worse.
