Oftentimes a wet basement or laundry room is the result of a malfunctioning drain. Fortunately, for homeowners in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), our professional team at Nusite Waterproofing can resolve the problem very quickly by unclogging and/or cleaning the floor drains. If they aren’t tended to, poorly working drains can often lead to water damage. The traps located beneath floor drains need to be filled with water to help prevent sewer odours and gases from leaking into the room.
The most common cause of a faulty drain or trap is due to it being plugged with debris or dirt. If you happen to notice that one or more of your drains isn’t working properly you can always ask for experienced assistance from Nusite Waterproofing. We will be able to locate the source of the backup and also offer advice on how to help stop it from occurring again. Some people also use sump pumps to keep their basements dry and clean. The pumps are designed to divert ground water into nearby storm drains or wells.
If you use a sump pump to keep your basement from flooding you need to make sure it’s always in working order. At Nusite we also offer sump pump service and advice to keep it in working order. Sump pumps and floor drains should be maintained properly to keep them working. It’s recommended that the trap of the floor drain is kept full of water. This is quite easy to do as you just need to pour a container of water into the drain once a month or so.
When it comes to sump pumps, it’s a good idea to test them every few weeks to make sure they’re working properly and you have some type of backup power system in place. The pump can be tested by pouring water into the pit of the pump and see if it turns on and starts removing the water. Be aware that if you try to block a clogged drain with a chemical product it could end up damaging the pipes. In addition, using a plunger on a slow-working drain may cause a worse problem. Remember that many types of objects and substances can clog a drain.
