Floor drains are designed to drain any water from the basement floor to an exterior sewer or pipe system. Although water may rise from the drain, this is generally not something we can fix but rather prevent from happening.
A lot of older homes have these basement drains installed. Over time, they can get clogged with dirt, debris, and it's possible that tree roots have actually made their way through the underground piping and are preventing water from draining away like normal. Clogs and basement drain repairs are generally fixed with plumbing experts, but A-1 Indiana Waterproofing we are interested in getting rid your basement water problems before they occur.
