For restaurants, gyms, dry cleaners and other businesses, keeping clean involves constant mopping, sweeping, and washing.
For example, restaurants often have one person dedicated to making sure the kitchen is very clean—their business and their customers’ health depend on it. In kitchens without a floor drain, keeping clean can take much more time and can put all of your employees at risk of injury.
Installing new floor drains or keeping the ones you have free of obstruction may seem like an unnecessary cost, but the investment is well worth it. FloHawks Plumbing + Septic has worked with countless businesses in a variety of industries to install and unclog floor drains. Our expert technicians have the tools, knowledge, and expertise needed to install new drains or unclog and service existing ones without impacting business operation.
How Do Floor Drains Work
Floor drains look very similar to the ones you’d find in a shower at home. In restaurants, the floor drain features a grating that keeps large foreign material from entering the plumbing system. Flooring surrounding these drains is typically sloped, allowing the water to flow into the drain.
Floor drains are often evenly distributed throughout the kitchen and other places where cleaning is common, preventing water from accumulating. Not only do floor drains make their areas more sanitary, but they also work to greatly reduce the risk an employee will slip and fall.
Floor Drain Installation and Repair
Floor drains are difficult plumbing fixtures to install, but our technicians never shy away from a challenge. For businesses, installing a floor drain typically means making a hole where there wasn’t one before. In addition, these drains must feed into the overall plumbing system, such as a septic tank in a home or a grease trap in a restaurant.
Floor drain installation is best left to a trusted company with expertly trained, certified and insured technicians who can efficiently install them. Our technicians are trained to minimize impact and get the job done correctly the first time.
