Floor drains are designed to provide a way for water to exit your home in the event of a flood or burst pipe. By quickly removing water from the premises, they can help to prevent extensive damage to your home. However, floor drains can also cause problems if they become clogged or backed up. When this happens, water can begin to pool in your home, damaging carpets and woodwork and fostering the growth of mold and mildew. As such, it is important to routinely check your floor drain to ensure that it is clear and functioning properly.

A common cause for issues with a floor drain can be debris that accumulates in the drain causing it to become clogged. This can lead to water backup and flooding. Symptoms can include:
Sometimes, a clogged drain in the floor can be fixed very easily. All you need is a plumber’s snake and you can fix the problem yourself. This is usually most effective when the drain problem is caused by a buildup of hair.
You can always try to DIY clean your shower drain this way, but a basement or laundry-room drain likely has a larger problem. This is when the benefits of professional drain cleaning come into play. These manual snakes are limited in their ability to clear blockages caused by scum and mineral buildup. For that, you need professional drain cleaning services in Albuquerque, NM.
Even if you feel like the problem could be solved with a chemical drain cleaner, leave it to the professionals. While these cleaners are sometimes effective, they can also cause damage to you and your pipe system.
Rooting refers to using a motorized drain auger to clear out clogged drains. These are also known as plumber’s snakes, but they are far more powerful than any snake that you can buy to DIY clean your drain.
The electric motor of a motorized drain auger has the power and force to work through some intense buildup in your drain. The grinding teeth at the head of the cable can even break through hard water, mineral buildups, and tree roots.
There are some floor drain problems that can’t wait and deserve immediate attention from a plumber. Though floor drains are convenient, they’re also situated right on the floor where floods can do the most damage. Call us immediately if water is coming up out of your floor drain.
Because floor drains see the least amount of flow in your home’s plumbing system, it is important to make sure they are operating on a regular basis. We suggest an annual inspection of the drains to ensure that they are still operational.
One of the main things to keep an eye out for with floor drains is intrusions from tree roots. Unfortunately, you may not notice any of the signs of a problem until it’s too late. These signs include gurgling sounds, slow drainage, and water coming back up through the drain.
Instead of waiting for those signs, opt for yearly inspections of your floor drains. We can look at your whole pipe and sewer system to make sure there are no problems. If there are issues, we can make the repairs early before tree roots start causing significant damage to your pipes.
