Clean drains are essential to the success of your food service facility. Floor drains are a HUGE culprit for fly breeding sites. Physical removal of debris & sanitizing/enzyme application is the key to eliminating flies from breeding. Debris must be removed from the rim, pipe lining and bottom of the drain. FLoor drains that dont recieve a lot of use are usually in the worst shape. Water may dry up allowing american roaches to come in fruit flies will breed as well as drain flies. A dirty floor drain can infest a restaurant with fruit flies in as few as 8 days.
