Why Is My Floor Drain Backing Up?

Basement floor drains typically receive condensate from your furnace, softeners, and other equipment in your mechanical room. Over time the minerals discharged with the condensate create a build-up inside of the floor drain and drain piping. If this is left untreated it can result in the floor drain backing up or a flooded basement when the furnace condensate runs or a water softener recharges. To prevent these issues we recommend cleaning and cabling floor drains as soon as you see build up starting to occur. In addition, if your sewer main is clogged sewage will typically back up through the floor drain first as it is the lowest fixture in your home or business. Our technicians are trained to examine the cause and provide drain cleaning services accordingly.
