Default drain overflowing

I live in an apartment and have a drain on the bathroom floor. When i take a shower (i admit i use a lot of soap), foam comes up from the drain. Is that dirty shower water that's coming up? Or is from somewhere else? Will the problem go away if I stop using as much soap? Thanks

Hello Misha,
It may not be due to soap. It may happen also for some other reasons. Better you just try using a small amount of soap for few days and just notice the change. If the problem is still happening better you consult a plumber to recognize the actual problem.
