Should there be a floor drain in the laundry room?
DO make sure that your laundry room has a floor drain – which will require a primer line. The primer line will flow water into the C-trap of the drain, creating a seal that keeps sewer gasses from backing up into your home. DON’T think that you have to have an entire room dedicated to laundry.
How do you unclog a floor drain in a laundry room?
Baking soda and vinegar react, causing a bubbling clean action inside your drain. Pour 1 cup of each down your drain. Follow that with 3 cups of boiling water. Wait until the bubbling has stopped, then pour more water down the drain to make sure there are no remaining clogs.
