Clogged Floor Drain
Your home often has more than one floor drain – you most likely have a basement floor drain, laundry room, and garage floor drain. These floor drains allow excess water to exit through the floor drain rather than flooding your home. However, these drains can get backed up resulting in a flooded basement, laundry room, or garage.
Floor drains, along with other drains in your home, have traps underneath. These traps should be kept full of water to prevent sewer odors from seeping into your home. The traps can become clogged with dirt and debris as they flow into the sewer pipes. When this happens, your home is a greater risk of flooding as there is no way for excess rain water or hose water to flow out.
If you are experiencing multiple drain clogs or drains not draining properly, perhaps a floor drain is clogged. These drain clogs can start backing up all other drains throughout your home. Clearing out a floor drain clog requires a professional from Omaha Drain to come out and thoroughly clean the drain.
Prevent Your Floor Drain from Backing Up
Here are a couple tips to keep in mind to prevent your floor drain from backing up:
Keep the trap seal full: Floor drains don’t get used as often as the other drains throughout your Omaha home so it is important to occasionally run a bucket of water down the floor drain to keep it full. This will help prevent sewer gases and other odors from seeping up and invading your home with horrific odors.
Test your sump pump frequently: We recommend testing your sump pump once every one to two years. Test your sump pump before the rainy season is here to make sure it works as it should.
