Keep your floor drains operating at your restaurant or business
When a floor drain clogs at a restaurant or business, it can cause a major disruption and even safety concerns. In many restaurants and businesses, floor drains are a common sight, and face the risk of being clogged because of both use and potential abuse.
If a floor drain were to back up in your business, what damage would it cause? Many floor drains are located in storage areas, where a backup could cause damage to anything being stored. In restaurants, floor drains are common in prep and cooking areas, where a backup could put your kitchen on hold, causing more than just physical damage, but damage to your reputation.
Why do I need floor drain cleaning?
Dirt and sediment from your basement floor, as well as your water softener, can build up inside your floor drain and cause a clog. Another common cause of floor drain backups is a main sewer line disruption, which is often due to tree roots that can work their way inside your drain pipe.
How we clean floor drains
We use electric power snakes to not only clear your blockage, but to scrape all build up and debris from the inside of your pipe. If you have a particularly tough clog, we may recommend a video inspection to see how far down the clog is and gain more insight into what it might be.
How often should floor drains be cleaned?
Depending what kind of use and abuse you suspect your floor drains may encounter, you could be at risk for backups. We may recommend scheduling regular preventive maintenance if you experience slow drains, or suspect that your drains are being exposed to foreign debris and sediment on a regular basis.
