Do-It-Yourself Drain Cleaning Tips


Hi Neighbors!

The drains in your home are subjected to a number of different types of debris. Over time, these drains will begin to naturally collect this debris and form clogs. If the plumbing in your home is quite old, then you may experience clogs more frequently than other houses with more modern plumbing. Fortunately, there are a few do-it-yourself ways to keep your drains clean and clear of debris. However, it’s also equally important to know when you should call a drain cleaning company for assistance. Whether it’s a San Diego or San Antonio drain cleaning company that you need to contact, don’t wait until it’s too late to do so. Otherwise, here are a few easy and safe ways to keep your drains in tip-top shape.

Natural Ways to Clean Your Drains

There are a number of household products that can be safely and effectively used to clean your drains. One of the best household products to use on your drains is regular old baking soda. You’re probably familiar with the cleansing powers of baking soda. Yet in addition to being a great household cleaner, baking soda also effectively (and safely) eats away at the debris within your drains. Baking soda is a safe way to clean your drain and won’t hurt your pipes, as many chemical drain cleaners will. Simply run hot water from the faucet and add a tablespoon of baking soda. You can do this on a weekly basis to keep debris from building up in your drains. 

Rinse with Hot Water and Vinegar

Vinegar is another natural household cleaning product that will work wonders in your drains. Simply run hot water from the faucet and pour a fourth of a cup of vinegar directly into the drain. For extra cleaning power, you can add baking soda and let the mixture fizz for a moment before rinsing. The reaction between vinegar and baking soda creates a powerful cleaning agent that also helps to remove small clogs from the drain. If you believe that you have a substantial clog in your drain, however, it’s best to call a professional drain cleaning company. Whether it’s a San Antonio drain cleaning company that you need to contact or a San Diego one, don’t wait to do so. It’s better to take care of this type of problem before it gets out of control.
