Ask a Plumber in Northbrook, IL – How Should I Handle a Clogged Drain?
Posted on June 24, 2015 by admin in Plumbing
When your drain is clogged, it needs to be fixed right away. Any backup in water-flow can cause major damage to your home and an unhealthy situation will begin to develop, putting the health of your family at risk. In Northbrook, we know you’d rather be doing other things with your summer than unclogging your drains, such as hiking the trails at the River Trail Nature Center or visiting the Northbrook Historical Society and History Museum, so leave the dirty work to us.
At Lake Cook Plumbing, our experienced plumbers are ready 24/7 to come and unclog your drains safely and efficiently. However, if you do choose to try and unclog the drains yourself first, we’d like to give your some tips.
- Be wary of store-bought chemicals as many can cause unnecessary damage to your pipes. They also aren’t very efficient in actually removing the source of the clog.
- Try pouring boiling water and salt down your drain to break up and disintegrate the clog. If that doesn’t work, try pouring baking soda and vinegar down there first, wait a few minutes for it to foam, then pour down boiling water.
- Use a closet auger, essentially a mini drain snake, to penetrate your drain and destroy the clog.
- Or it could be as simple as getting a new and better plunger!
If all these home remedies aren’t working, our professional plumbers at Lake Cook Plumbing will take care of it!
