Drains are paths through which water can be conveyed or disposed of. Drains are found in our kitchens, bathrooms, basins, and many more. Drains perform the function of taking out unwanted water out of the home to a septic tank or somewhere else. Drainage systems are built strategically in the home in order to manage water disposal. Sometimes, our drains get clogged by things we out through it which prevents proper flushing out of unwanted water. A clogged drain not taken care of could lead to serious hygiene problems in the home. If you have a clogged drain, you can contact us for help. At Plumbing Services Rockdale, we have the right tool methods, and personnel to help you out of this trouble. Here are a few methods available by us for your blocked drains.
This is one of the most popular methods of clearing any clogged, moderately sized pathway like drains and water closets. Plungers are made especially for toilets and they work at least eighty percent of the time. The tool is built to force air down the pathway; this helps to clear any blockage in between and push them down the drain. To achieve the right results, the plunger needs to be placed on the opening to the drain and pushed down several times momentarily. This might be a little gross in the toilet as you might see the content due to the presence of water.
This method involves the addition or pouring of hot water into the drain in order to melt or dissolve content. The boiled water is only effective on grease or solidified liquid like, thick oil and is mostly used in the kitchen drain. For best results, water has to be cleared from the sink before you proceed to pour the hot water. Once this is done, pour the boiled water into the sink as slowly as you can, this gives the grease or oil more time to melt and flow out of the drain.
Vinegar And Baking Soda
This method is an all-rounder. Vinegar and baking soda are known to perform a lot of cleansing and dirt removal functions and clearly, cleaning drains happen to be one of them. This is a very natural and less harmful way to clear your drain. To do this, you need to mix both of them in a bottle and properly shake. Once this is done, pour directly into the drain and wait for 3 thirty to forty minutes, after which you will plunge several times and add boiling water for a perfect finish.
This method requires a considerable amount of caution and preparation. It involves the use of chemicals to clear your drain. Depending on the content of the drain, drain cleaners can dissolve or melt them in order to allow a clear passage of water. Drain cleaners, however, are highly dangerous on human contact. If you intend to use them, you need to be geared up with specific clothing as it could cause skin issues if spilled on it. For this kind of service, it’s better to hire professionals to prevent any unnecessary accidents.
