Clogged drains are a nuisance that seems to just occur at the most inconveniencing moments –like when you’re about to go to work. However, come to think of it, drains don’t clog on their own. Something that doesn’t belong there must be the cause, meaning that it’s all down to poor maintenance.
If you’re in a good mood for a DIY, there a couple of ways you can implement to fix blocked drains. One way is by straightening a wire coat hanger, turning one side to create a hook, and shoving it in the drain. Once in, try pulling up the items that are causing the blockage. Afterward, you can pour hot water in to clear up the remaining substances. If this method doesn’t work, get yourself a pair of gloves and mix some caustic soda with water thoroughly then pour it into the clogged drain and leave it for about 20-30 minutes. Afterward, flush the drain with boiling water.
Boiling water always works in most instances and should even work without the help of other tools. Simply put water to boil then pour it down the drain at intervals. If you’ve got a vacuum cleaner, you can also try to vacuum the dirt from the drains. Just make sure to use a water tight head for this process. However, this will only work for some drains.
Following the methods above requires a great of patience and expertise. If you don’t have the equipment or time, you just have to find a good plumber to get your drains functioning at their optimum. Besides, good plumbers can even offer very affordable drain maintenance packages.
