Floor drains from time to time back up and can cause more then a mess. They can cause headache’s and destruction our home. Floor drains weather new or old need to be cleaned, watched and maintained.
Older drains that were cast iron have build up of scale and other deposits as to newer drains get clogged for several other reasons. Newer floor drains get clogged from us living in our homes and enjoying running water to shower, wash clothes and clean dishes. Water that we use goes into and down our pipes into our basements and then out the main line were it eventually ends up in the city sewer.
Floor drains get clogged from hard water build up, food, grease, lint and many other products that we use in our homes on a daily basis. If you have a perfect sewer system and water flows properly you won’t back up as much but should also clean your drains once a year. Just like our cars go in couple times a year for an oil change our drains need their own type of oil change as well.
