Floor Drain Clogged

Floor Drain Clogged

Why do floor drains clog? well, why do we get sick? Why do we have to repair our vehicles? Why does anything happen?

Floor drains are subject for maintenance and repair just like anything else. You think just cause you can’t see something underground it should be perfect? Well think twice about that. Underground is a whole other world of broken pipes that we typically find out the hard way. You might ask yourself when? But, it’s not “when” it’s when your least expecting it and then your house floods and your in a panic.

Why do floor drains start to run slow?

Do you use your kitchen sink? Do you use your laundry tubs and washing machine? Does food, grease, lint, build-up and all other sorts of gunk get down your drains? Do bugs live in your drains? Does scum just grow? Do drain lines clog themselves?

If you’re using your kitchen sink from time to time, no matter how careful you may be, your drains will clog. It’s one of the inevitable’s of life. Just like we can’t stop the aging process no matter what we do. As for your laundry, there is so much soap, lint, detergent and dirt going down your drains constantly. Which clog you floor drains and any other drains in it’s path.

Why do floor drains not drain properly?
Once some debris gets down your drains, build up will start happening instantly. All it takes is one bend in the pipe to get clogged up partially.

Why have I been living in my house for years and just now we start having issues?
Clogged drains have nothing to do with why haven’t they clogged before. Pipes move and shift all the time especially as they age and as the ground settles over a period of time.

It’s never fun when a sewer line is broken and needs to be excavated but what choice do you have. Fix your plumbing pipe or not use any water. You choose.

Are there worms in your sewer system?

I know the picture below may upset your stomach but this is what’s inside your sewer line. Many animals live and eat debris from your sewer system. Getting your line cleaned yearly will prevent creatures from nesting in your personal sewer system. Keeping worms, rats and all types of animals is very important. Once an animal lives in your sewer line you can bet on them breaking though as well.
