All of us have been, at one time or another, at that place where we were utterly frustrated with our slow functioning drains. I mean if that’s the amount of time my drain is going to take for carrying the water out, then I should be graced with an extra 2 hours every day alone for that!
But you see, no matter the pleas or the obscenities we throw at our drain, the system un-surprisingly doesn’t start functioning again. So what should be done now?
Well, apart from calling for professional help (which you should probably do if you feel like you are incapable of handling the situation on your own), we have got a list of 4 simple solutions that you can use to at least earn some temporary relief. Here check it out!
Top 5 Solutions To Unclog Your Drain
If you have a clogged kitchen sink, then it is most probably a result of organic matter or fats that have accumulated and choked the drain pipes. In order to right it, use boiling hot water. This will liquefy the fats and clean up your pipes to offer you some temporary relief.
Note: Don’t use this trick either on the porcelain sink bowl because it may crack or on PVC drains as their joints may loosen up.
If your bathtub or shower drain has hairs choking it up, then this trick might just be your solution. All you need to do is to get a wire and to make a small hook at its end. Now run it up and down your drain, so it can hook any hair or other gunk that is slowing your drain.
Of course, the good old fashioned plunger made it to our list. Did you think otherwise? Well if you did then no bummer, you were wrong!
Plungers are, well, the best tools for getting rid of drain issues. They work on every type of drains and are easy to work.
If your drain is localized to one drain and you can access it, then this might be a simple job for you. Just look for the “J” bend and slid it out. All the grease and the dirt that might have got accumulated there is very well the culprit. Clean it out, then you are good to go!
So these are the simple 4 tricks that can unclog your drain. However, in case they do not work to your satisfaction and you feel like you need some professional help, then contact us and we will soon be at your service!
