Floor Drain Services

Floor drains are not common, but where they are present, they’re critical. Commercial floor drains can be found in public showers and restrooms, laundry rooms, basements, garages, and restaurant kitchens, giving excess water a way to drain out to a storm drain or sewer. When a floor drain develops buildups or clogs, you run a greater risk of customers and employees experiencing slips and falls, and the debris causing the clogging can be highly unsanitary.

If your commercial floor drains are giving you a headache, contact Superior Drainage to learn more about our service offerings.

Tips for Maintaining Commercial Floor Drains

Commercial floor drains shouldn’t be ignored just because they’re unobtrusive. While you won’t be able to remove significant blockages or clogs yourself, you can help prevent them from occurring by following a few simple steps from time to time.

Don’t Let Drains Dry Out

It may seem counterintuitive, but because commercial floor drains are designed to handle a constant water flow, it can be dangerous to let them dry out. The drains have a trap pipe that holds water to prevent sewer gas from escaping up the drain as part of the sewer system. One sign of over-dry commercial drains is a foul sewage odor indicating the water trap has dried up.

Check for Clogs

Clogs may be caused by overly dry pipes collecting all the dirt and debris swept into them rather than being washed down through the trap pipe. Dryness can also occur due to poor cleaning habits or just a buildup of residues and other materials over time. In some cases, taking a bucket of hot soapy water and pouring it down the drain can reveal the state of the drain. If it goes down smoothly, you know your drain is functioning correctly, and the hot water and soap can help erode any buildup that is present. If the flow down the drain is slow or nonexistent, it’s time to call in the professionals before the blockage gets worse.

Schedule Regular Cleaning

Any floor drain in a commercial setting needs regular maintenance to function properly and prolong the life of the pipes. Superior Drainage offers routine drain cleaning services specifically designed to keep commercial floor drains fully functional for your peace of mind.
