One of the worst things to happen while you’re showering is the slow drain of water you just bathe on. When that happens, you bet on high heavens that your drainage system is clogged. Clogged drains are inevitable, especially if you don’t maintain it or put some contraptions to prevent clogging in the first place.
In the face of clogged drains, you can do little tricks off the bat to unclog them. However, if these tricks don’t take effect or the same drain problem recurs, again and again, it’s time to call for professional help.
Check out some of the homemade tricks that you can do in the face of three of the most common spots for clogging: Bathroom, kitchen sink, dishwasher.
Bathroom drainage clog came from years of accumulated dirt, skin flakes, hair, soap scum, on the insides of the drain pipes. You know that the clogging situation becomes serious when you hear a gurgling noise and a slow creation of a water swamp on your bathroom floor or in your bathroom sink.
Tips for unclogging your bathroom sink: Remove your drain stopper and clean them. Next, use a plunger. If the plunger doesn’t work, remove the drain elbow joint and clean it. Regularly clean your drain stoppers. Use a special drain strainer that prevents hair from falling in your drains.
For toilets, the clog is mainly due to poor waste management. The act of throwing napkins, diapers, and other unnecessary stuff, clogs your drains right away.
Tips for unclogging your toilet: Use a plunger to prevent further clogging. Next, use the hand-powered drain auger. The hand-powered drain auger is not for the faint-hearted, so try to call a professional if you don’t like the dirty work. Lastly, tell the members of the house to throw their solid wastes on bins.
KITCHEN SINK UNCLOGGING
Kitchen sinks clog up when oil, grease, and food are regularly poured down the drain.
Tips for unclogging your kitchen sink: Boil water on your kettle and slowly pour it down your kitchen sink’s drain. Drop a generous amount of detergent and slowly pour hot water once more. Let it sit for a few minutes. Use the plunger and repeat the hot water/detergent solution technique. If the mentioned tips don’t work, opt for a chemical drain unclogging agent but proceed with care.
To prevent future clogging, pour your grease and oil in a separate plastic bag and dispose of them properly. If you accidentally poured grease or oil down your sink’s drain, do the hot water/detergent solution to prevent clogging.
If you’ve tried every solution to your kitchen sink drain problem, call a professional drain agency. Your problem could be deeper than a simple clog.
Tips for unclogging your dishwasher: Declog your dishwasher’s drain through a homemade solution. The declogging solution is in the form of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda. First, mix a solution of baking soda and vinegar down the drain. Let them sit for hours and then run over hot water down the drain.
If the same problem recurs, it’s time to call Drain Professional for help. There might be some misalignment on the joints of the pipe that you alone can’t solve.
