How To Clear Blocked Drains
Drains get clogged because of the build-up of debris in your drainage pipes. In a blocked kitchen sink, that can be due to food, dirt, and hardened grease. If you’re dealing with a blocked bathroom sink, that could be caused by soap residue and foreign objects like hair or nail clippings. Although you can avoid a blocked sink or blocked bathroom drain by avoiding washing these types of materials into your pipes, knowing how to clear clogged drains at home is still a worthwhile endeavor.
While the immediate impulse is to call an expert plumber, there are several do-it-yourself or DIY techniques to remove the clog, thereby saving a couple of bucks. There are several household products you can use for clearing drains DIY without using caustic drain cleaners.
The methods for draining a blocked drain depends on whether the clog is partial or full-on. The former, or partial clog, will allow at least some water down the drain. The latter, however, means the drains are fully blocked and no water is going down at all.
You can use the below DIY methods to unblock your blocked drain at home:
Natural Cleaners to refresh your drains
An easy DIY method is to use natural cleaners such as sodas to create a fizzing effect that breaks up the drain blockage particles.
Pour hot water down the drain, then use one cup of bicarbonate of soda and a cup of vinegar. Together this will form a powerful drainage mix. Leave it for 10 minutes, then pour down more hot water. The mix of the natural cleaner and hot water can clear the blockage up.
Boiling Water to clear your blocked sink
A most common method is using boiling water to tackle most blocked drains caused by fat deposits, toiletries, and other types of grease. The extreme heat of the water will break up these substances. Boil a kettle of water and pour it down the drain to break up the blockage.
Using a plunger to clear stubborn debris
Another effective tool is the use of plungers to help shift the blockage. This particular tool works by forming a tight seal around the drain hole, and with a vacuum pull effect may remove the clogged drain.
