A backed-up drain can bring a household to a standstill. The water is just one problem…the smell is another. It is simply something you wish to avoid before you have to make that inevitable call to your favorite plumber. So, let’s try to keep it from happening in the first place. Wouldn’t that be better?
Every time you use your sink run some hot water through it. How many of us do that? Now and then, throw a handful of baking soda down the drain and run hot water through it. Have you tried vinegar? You may be surprised at its effectiveness. Just pour a cup down the drain, let it sit for 30 minutes, then wash it down with (you guessed it) hot water!
All of these methods may make a big difference on how often you need to call a professional. Fortunately, if you do then you know whom to call…drain busters!
