- Boiling Water – Pouring boiling water down a clogged drain can help break up any soap holding the clog together. This method might not work as well for matted hair but it can be combined with other methods to be more effective.
- Removing the Clog – You can sometimes remove the clog itself by reaching down into the drain and pulling out the obstruction. Be sure you wear gloves and if you prefer you can try using a wire coat hanger or a plumbers’ snake.
- Baking Soda and Vinegar – This combination of non-harmful cleaning chemicals can be used to clear out drains. Start with the baking soda and pour one cup down the drain. Wait a few minutes and then pour a cup of vinegar down. Wait a couple of hours and then pour some boiling water down the drain.
- Calling a Professional – This is often the best method as the previous methods may or may not work. A professional plumber like those at Allen Service will know exactly what to do and can use a variety of methods to unclog your drains.
