Tips for Unclogging a Drain

No matter how careful you are about preventing them, drain clogs occur every now and then for most people. While severe clogs may require a plumber's expertise, some of the more minor clogs can be fixed with common DIY solutions. Here’s a few things you can try before you call our experts.
1
Avoid Chemicals

Off the shelf, chemical drain cleaners may be somewhat effective at clearing minor clogs but it could be at significant cost.  Avoid the use of these harsh chemicals that will erode your pipes, leading to long-term damage.  It’s also important not to mix chemicals or drain cleaners at they could cause a dangerous reaction.

2
Boiling Water

The simplest solution is slowly pouring boiling water down the drain, stopping every 5 or so seconds to see if the water is draining any faster.

3
Home Remedy

If you’re looking for a safe, home remedy solution you can try pouring 1/2 cup baking soda down the drain followed by 1/2 cup vinegar.  The fizzing action will work to loosen up the gunk, hair and grime that has built-up.  Let it sit for at least an hour and then flush with boiling hot water.

4
Invest in a disposable drain cleaning tool

You can utilize a drain cleaning tool, also referred to as a hair grabber or drain snake, found at most big box home improvement stores.  You slide the tool down into the drain, and its small prongs grab hair and debris that is caught in the drain as you pull it out.

5
Plunging

Most people associate plungers with toilets, but did you know they also make one for sinks and showers?  For proper suction, make sure you use a plunger that is sized for your drain.

How to Prevent Clogs in Your Drains

Avoid putting any oils, fats, or grease down your drains. Dispose of these items safely and properly in the trash.
Use your garbage disposal sparingly, even the disposal can leave behind residue and broken-down food that can cause a drain to clog.
Flush only toilet paper
Use a hair trap in your bath / shower to keep hair and other debris from going down the drain.
Clean drains regularly by flushing them with baking soda and vinegar a few times a year.

Joe, is one of the best servicemen that Jackson Comfort has. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly & courteous, listens to me, explains the details of what he is checking, and always does a thorough job. Today he did the annual check on my A/C system. I have full confidence that my unit is in top shape for the next year.

Wow great job overall. Very professional with a great system for contacting you with when the technician is arriving. Brian was fantastic quick and went over everything before he did it. Punctual, thorough and job was done perfectly. AC unit which I neglected was running like a new system and not pricey at all.

It was a pleasure having Matt service our equipment. He was on time and explained everything he did. He took care to protect our hardwood floors while he worked. Jackson Comfort has been taking care of our unit for over 15 years. Thank you to everyone at Jackson and especially Matt for such great service.

Been using Jackson for 10 years. Always on time, friendly and not pushy. They use modern technology to confirm appointments and send reminders (email and text). I also like that I received a color image of the service tech via text when he was en route to our home. That way I know it is actually him.
