Is your floor drain backing up?RooterMan provides a variety of floor drain repair services to get it working properly. Floor drains are commonly found in laundry rooms, basements, utility rooms, garages, commercial restrooms, kitchens, or any other place water may need to be drained. Floor drains are meant to drain off any standing water from the floor in areas where it pools. The floor around the floor drain is sloped to allow water to flow into the drain. Your floor drain can be identified by locating a grated strainer that is visible on the floor.
Floor drains get little attention until they clog and puddles start to form and your basement or other area gets flooded. In instances like this, it is a good idea to get it fixed as soon as possible. RooterMan has more than 50+ years of experience unclogging floor drains.
The common floor drain problems we encounter include:
- Clogged Floor Drains- Pieces of debris and sludge builds up on the walls of the floor drain pipes until they are eventually clogged. This is the most common cause of a clogged floor drain. The first signs of clogging floor drain will often start as small puddles forming around the floor drain. Another sign is a sewage smell coming from the floor drain.
- Crystallization inside the floor drain pipes- Crystallization inside the the floor drain pipes can be caused by soaps, and other sweetened liquids like soda or coffee. As these liquids pass through the pipes they can leave residue behind that build up and harden until the pipes becomes restricted or completely closed. Overflow and flooding can occur when your floor drains are not working properly!
- Drain Pipe breaks- As drain pipes age they can form cracks and breaks. If you can pour a large volume of water down your floor drain with no pooling whatsoever your drain pipe may be cracked or broken.
