I'm looking to finish my basement, the house was built in 2005. There is a storage area (it will remain unfinished) with the water heater, hvac, sump pump and storage. There are two floor drains, that are in the family area that I plan on carpeting or tiling.
Should I have the drains relocated to the storage area, covered, or something else?
The house has never had a problem with floods or odors (yet). Any ideas or steps to take? Thanks, Jake
