Drain blockages can arise at any given time on your Arvada property. If you’re noticing slow draining drains or standing water, there’s a good chance that you’re experiencing a clog. Especially if only one of your drains is effected– if all of your drains have issues please contact your AppleTree team immediately! Hair, food scraps, dirt, and debris can all easily create a clog in one of your drains. Here are some home remedies that you can try before getting professional help:
DIY Drain Cleaning for Arvada Homeowners
- Self-cleaning: Assessing your drain is the first step. If you have an idea of what’s causing the blockage, removing the plug stopper and using a wire hanger to search for the clog can be effective. Remember to wear gloves when reaching down and removing the clog.
- DIY cleaning solution: Take advantage of some of your common household items to address your clog. Pour half a cup of baking soda down your drain followed by a cup of vinegar. Let this mixture sit for at least 15 minutes while you boil some water. Pour the boiling water down your drain after 15 minutes.
- Liquid plumbing agent: Liquid plumbing agent is readily available at many stores and is usually an affordable way to unclog your drain. Please be aware that this can be toxic and harmful to you and the environment. Never pour liquid plumbing agent down your garbage disposal.
