Initial Clean

For the purpose of this blog we are going to give you a process which uses a wet a dry vacuum.

Firstly undo the grates which are causing you the most smells, then use the wet and dry vacuum to suck all the fluid out of the bottom of the flooor drain.

Secondary Clean

Fill all the basins, showers, baths and other fixtures which run to the floor waste drain with water and drop all the water at the same time. Add a little beach or other strong cleaning product to the fixtures as they empty.

It is now time to get your drain brush (Clean toilet brush) and scrub your floor drains clean.

Final Clean

Once the secondary clean is complete. Fill the fixtures with water again add bleach and drop. This time rather than cleaning, secure that grate back onto the floor drain. This time let the water sit and wash away naturally with day to day use.

On Going Maintenance

To ensure that your drains are kept in top condition, complete the secondary clean every couple of months, this will ensure that the floor drains naturally built up sediments are washed away regularly and the cleaning products will help the drains keep smelling nice.
