How to unblock your drain 

Here are some common and simple ways to unblock your drain according to tips given by experts in drain unblocking Glasgow.

  • Boiling water

Boil a full kettle of water and pour it slowly down the drain in several stages. Make sure to pause a few seconds between each pour. The boiling water goes through the pipes and dissolves anything that is in between. According to an expert in drain cleaning Glasgow service, this is one of the simplest and fastest methods of unblocking away.

  • Baking soda and vinegar

A mix of baking soda and vinegar is one of the most effective natural home remedies you can use to unblock your drain. Mix 1/3 cup of vinegar and 1/3 cup of baking soda. This mix should start fizzing immediately. Pour the mix down the skin and leave it overnight. The next day, flush it all away with hot water. 

  • Salt and baking soda

Salt and baking soda are simple ingredients that you can find in your kitchen cupboard. Mix half a cup of baking soda with half a cup of table salt and pour it down the drain. Leave it for 10 to 20 minutes before pouring boiling water. These ingredients will produce a chemical reaction than can clear your blocked drain.

  • Cleaning the pipe

A leading drainage company in Glasgow believes that the simple solution to unblock your drain is to clean the pipe. Place a bucket beneath the u-shaped pipe under the sink. Loosen the slip nuts at both ends of the pipe. The water will collect in the bucket along with any debris. Rinse the pipe and fix it back.

  • Biological cleaners

Biological cleaners use enzymes that chew through any blockages and are more environmental-friendly than chemical cleaners. However, they may not be as effective as chemical cleaners in removing stubborn grime. Biological cleaners are effective in getting rid of soap or strands of hair that block your drain.

  • Chemical cleaners

Chemical cleaners are easy to find in most of the supermarkets. Pour a store-bought chemical cleaner down the drain and leave it overnight. The next day, pour hot water down the sink and you’ll have a cleaned and unblocked drain.

  • Using a plunger

Using a plunger is an old-school method which is still effective according to an expert in emergency plumber Glasgow Southside. They work well by sucking up any blockages in your drain. It would take more time and a few tries until your get successful.
