When Is Floor Drain Repair Necessary?

Clogged floor drain

Floor drains are typically installed on the floor of bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, or anywhere with a possibility of water spilling. Floor drains allow small amounts of water to overflow, which relieves pressure on the main pipes. Keeping your floor drains clean and clog-free through regular drain cleaning in Spokane Valley, WA is a must to avoid serious issues. Vietzke Trenchless discusses some problems that require floor drain repair below:

Blocked Drain

A frequently overflowing floor drain or a never draining floor drain could indicate a clog in your sewer pipe. A buildup of hair or a buildup of soap and grease leading to crystallization could cause this problem. You should contact our professionals for assistance. They will advise you on whether you require drain snaking or hydro jetting services or if the problem is more advanced.

No Overflow

Sending a large amount of water down your pipes should result in a slight overflow on your floor drain. Plumbing systems designs allow for small amounts of water to overflow in the floor drain. This works to relieve the pressure on the main drain pipe of your house. If the overflow does not happen, it could indicate a broken sewer pipe leaking toxic water into the ground. It is important to contact our drain cleaning company for assistance with this issue.

Wastewater Backing Up

Heavy rainfall or other system problems can lead to the municipal sewers backing up the sewage line and into your floor drain. Installing a backflow preventer gate in your floor drain and investing in regular drain cleaning services will help stop wastewater from backing up into your house. 

A clogged drain can cause serious water damage to your house, and floor drains help you avoid such problems. At Vietzke Trenchless, we offer our clients prompt and affordable plumbing services. Contact us today for an appointment.
