Usually located in basements, garages, utility or laundry rooms, floor drains are just as susceptible to clogs as every other drain. Many restaurants and commercial kitchens also have floor drains, and there is no shortage of oil, detergent, food and debris washed into them.
There are a few tricks you can implement to keep them clean and functional.
- Floor drains have a special trap that should be kept filled with water in order to keep sewer gases and odors from escaping.
- Floor drains should be checked periodically to ensure that they’re functioning as intended.
- Snake a garden hose as far into the drain as possible and blast for ten to fifteen seconds.
