Drain Cleaning Home Remedies
Here are some home remedies to help you unclog and loosen up the built-up dirt and grime in your drains. If these remedies have no affect or you just don’t have the time, call Ventura County Plumbing & Rooter for a quick and painless drain cleaning experience.
- Bent Wire Hanger – This is the simplest way to unclog your drain. Take a wire coat hanger and bend it as straight as you can, then on one end make a fish hook shape. Start fishing the hair and debris out of your drain. Remember, you want to pull the gunk out not push it further down!
- Baking Soda and Vinegar – Mix 1/3 cup vinegar and 1/3 cup baking soda in a container. Once mixed together, pour it down your clogged drain. Don't worry, the fizz you will see is what will clear up the blockage. Once the fizz is gone, run hot water down the drain and repeat if need be.
- Drain Snake – You can find these at any local hardware store. They are fixable metal wires with a spiral metal end that is designed to grab gunk and remove it from the drain.
