Properly maintaining floor drains in laundry rooms, garages, patios, and basements will help prevent clogging.

Floor Drain Cleaning

Area floor drains are common features of room like:

  • Laundry rooms
  • Garages
  • Patios
  • Basements

Any part of your home where water could flood should have an area floor drain — especially basements. Like sink or bathtub drains, these floor drains need to be equipped with traps which should be kept full of water in order to prevent sewer gasses from backing up into the room. When these traps become clogged, water can back up. Our Boston drain repair experts can clear your drains and give you tips on maintaining your floor drains to prevent blockage in the future.

Basement Plumbing Tips

Properly maintaining your basement floor drain and sump pump will help prevent clogging. Here are some tip

  • Keep the trap seal full. Your basement floor drain doesn’t get the same amount of use as other drains in your home, so it’s important to keep its trap seal full of water manually. Every few months, simply pour a bucket of water down your area floor drain.
  • Have professional maintenance performed regularly. Keeping your drains clean isn’t always easy, but it is important. McMahon Plumbing & Heating can provide routine drain maintenance services to help keep your drains functioning smoothly.
