Ways to Handle a Clogged Drain

There are times when a clogged drain is too big of a task for the common liquid drain cleaner to tackle. These are the times that can give a residential or commercial property owner that headache that comes matter-of-factly.

Fortunately, most drain clogs are minor to the point where Drano, Liquid Plumr or any other household chemical treatment will suffice. Clogs, however, should be treated like pests or anything else that could be hazardous. You should want to do all the preventative things in an effort to never have to deal with the problem.

When it comes to clogs down the sink or garbage disposal, try using salt water to clean with. The salt will absorb much of the grit and grime that can be affiliated with clogs. Pour salt into very hot water, then pour the mix down your drain. In addition to removing excess gunk, it also helps to eliminate bad odors.

One tip that many seem to forget for toilets is to use the plunger. These devices come in standard sizes for the toilet or smaller sizes for bathroom and kitchen sinks. Plungers have worked for years; yet, for some reason, they rarely get used when there is a clog.
