Like any part of your business, drains can fall into disrepair and need some attention. Whether its loose hairs, food debris, or dried cleaning products, it’s likely that you’ll have to deal with drains clogging. Having your floor drains clog up can be a major hygiene issue for you and your customers. Luckily, you can call Roy’s to help alleviate your drain clogs and perform a commercial floor drain cleaning. But how do you know when the problem has gone beyond a slightly sluggish drain and into a need for a plumber’s help?
Here are five signs that you could use commercial floor drain cleaning:
Backed up drains
When drains get heavily clogged, sometimes water that should have been drained will come back up. Oftentimes this water will include a bit of sewage from the insides of your pipes. If water is going back up the drain, it’s a major sign that it should be cleaned.
Clogged drains can sometimes make some odd noises. When drains get clogged, the water may be forced to go through small spaces or change course. This can result in strange and distracting gurgling or bubbling noises.
An easy way to tell when a drain is clogged is if it’s draining slower than usual. As well as being an inconvenience, this is a sign of a blockage somewhere in your pipes. A professional drain cleaning will release the clogs in your drains and allow water to easily flow through your pipes.
One of the more unpleasant and noticeable signs of a clogged drain is the smell of sewage. When drains get heavily clogged, anything that goes down into the drain will get stuck and rot in the lines. This can become even more noticeable and disgusting if you live in a warmer area. If you smell sewage in your business, it’s a good idea to act quickly.
Fruit and drain flies
Waste and other sewage has a tendency to attract flies. Fruit flies like the smell and can be a health risk if they get to where you store your food. Meanwhile, the aptly named drain fly (also known as sewer or filter fly) likes to breed in septic tanks, sewers, and clogged drains. If you start noticing lots of flies, you’ll definitely want to start cleaning your drains.
