Clogged Drain Cleaning Tips
Although stores sell many chemicals to handle your clogged drain, these products are harsh and can cause damage to the pipes. Many times these products simply move the clog further down the pipe, which can lead to a larger backup.
When faced with a clog, try these home clogged drain cleaning methods first:
1. Pour boiling water down your clogged drain. Add salt to help break up the clog.
2. Pour baking soda and vinegar into the drain together. Allow the combination to foam for a few minutes and follow up with boiling water.
3. Try a closet auger, which is a smaller type of drain snake. It’s a long, thin tube, often with a hook or bristles on one end. Feed it into the drain. Hopefully, the hooked or bristled end will grab and remove the clog.
4. Use the correct type of plunger for the job. If necessary, add some water to help the plunger get better suction.
