Servicing Clogged Drains In Long Island and the New York Metro Area
An integral part of the plumbing systems in many industrial settings are commercial floor drains. When these drains get clogged it can throw a wrench into daily business activity, causing lost productivity and revenue. Not to mention the messy residue they leave behind in your commercial space. Even worse, if your facility’s pipes have been neglected, they can be lined with years of buildup, causing hazardous corrosion and damage to your pipes.

Commercial Floor Drain Types
- Specific-Area Drains: typically found in restrooms, locker rooms, and showers. These drains work to prevent overflow in areas like commercial kitchens, food service/hospitality settings, factories, hospitals, warehouses, parking lots, garages, and more.
- Sanitary Drains: typically found in commercial food preparation areas such as restaurants, as well as pharmaceutical and chemical processing plants, hospitals, and other like industries. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel drains are the best choice for reducing the accumulation of bacteria, and for decreasing contamination risk.
- Deep Sump Drains: typically found in agricultural facilities such as dairies, meatpacking plants, food processing centers, industrial kitchens, bottling plants, and hazardous waste processing centers. They’re designed for heavy volume applications, including continuous flow and debris-laden fluids.
- Floor Sinks: typically found in food and beverage manufacturing plants and other industrial settings. Generally, they’re either fully or partially covered with perforated gratings in various sizes, with optional internal flanges (flashing collars) to decrease splashing from high volume and/or high flow rates.
- Trench Drains: typically found in amusement parks, zoos, and other public/commercial settings to provide overflow drainage. They’re used to meet the needs of retailers serving beverages and food (i.e. gas stations and convenience stores, etc.)
- Catch Basins: these basins are custom-designed as collection points for flat bottom, v-bottom, or rounded trench drains.
- Double Containment Drains: these work well in drainage systems that are exposed to extreme temperatures, such as intense cold or high heat. They’re designed to help manage condensation when used with floor sinks, trench grates, and catch basin drainage systems.
