Your home can’t function as normal when there is pool of stagnant water that won’t go away. The problem is that removing a drain clog can be tricky, and most DIY drain cleaning methods are a lot more trouble than they’re worth. First, we’re going to tell you what NOT to do to clear your drain; then we’re going to tell you the easiest, most hassle-free way to get your drains flowing fast once again.
How NOT to Deal with a Clogged Drain
Drain Cleaning Chemicals – Many people purchase drain cleaning chemicals at the store because they are relatively inexpensive. But in most cases, people find that they get what they pay for. These chemicals simply don’t work well. Most buyers find that they need to purchase these chemicals over and over again as they try repeatedly to clear their drains. Repeated use of these caustic chemicals can even cause serious damage to plumbing pipes, and furthermore, these chemicals can burn a person’s (or pet’s!) skin or eyes.
The Garden Hose – Many people think that using a garden hose on their clogged drain is an ingenious idea, but unfortunately, it’s not. A garden hose is not up for the task and attempts to unclog drains with garden hoses usually just create bigger messes.
A Coat Hanger – Usually when a plumber is called to a home that has bent coat hanger stuck in a drain, it’s because someone was attempting to break up a drain clog. Coat hangers and similar objects aren’t designed to remove drain blockages, and there’s a good chance you’ll end up damaging your plumbing pipe.
