Floor Drains for Commercial Properties
It’s easy to overlook the importance of floor drains, but they serve a critical role in every commercial space. Without functional floor drains in the basement, patio and other flood-prone areas of your commercial unit, you put your property at risk of flooding and property damage from excess water. A-1 Septic Tank Service is here to help you keep your floor drains functioning as they should, protecting your space from any potential issues.
Common Floor Drain Problems
Floor drains are commonly found in basements, since that’s where standing water is most likely to collect if it gets into your commercial space—whether through a flood, a leak, or a sewer backup. Every drain includes a trap beneath it that serves to keep sewer gas from circulating inside your home. What happens when these traps become clogged with dirt and debris? They stop doing their job—and that can result in water accumulating or in sewer gases getting into your indoor air.
Signs of a Floor Drain Issue
If you notice any symptoms that indicate your floor drain isn’t doing its job, it’s time to call a professional. You might assume that a floor drain problem isn’t urgent, but it can lead to serious issues if you don’t have it resolved soon. Water damage, indoor air contamination, and mold growth can all result from a malfunctioning floor drain. Here are some of the most common signs that you may need professional floor drain services:
- Water is pooling around your floor drain.
- You can see grime building up on the inside of your drain.
- There is an odor of sewer gas coming from the drain.
