How to Clear a Clogged Drain?

Clogged drains are a common household problem that can be frustrating to deal with. Fortunately, clearing a clogged drain is not always complicated and can often be done without calling a plumber. Here are some steps to follow to clear a clogged drain.

  1. Boiling Water - Boiling water is the first thing to try when clearing a clogged drain. Boil a pot of water and pour it down the drain slowly. This will help to loosen and dissolve any grease or debris that might be clogging the drain.
  2. Baking Soda and Vinegar - If boiling water doesn't work, the next step is to try a mixture of baking soda and vinegar. Pour 1/2 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. Cover the drain with a plug or cloth and wait for 10-15 minutes. Afterward, pour boiling water down the drain to clear away any remaining debris.
  3. Plunger - If the clog is still persistent, try using a plunger. Make sure there is enough water in the sink or tub to cover the plunger cup. Place the plunger over the drain and pump up and down vigorously several times. This will create suction that will help to dislodge the clog.
  4. Plumbing Snake - If the plunger fails to clear the clog, the next step is to use a plumbing snake. Insert the snake into the drain and turn the handle until you feel resistance. Keep turning the handle while pushing the snake further into the drain until the clog is dislodged.

If you're experiencing a persistent clog that can't be cleared with simple home remedies, it's time to call Platinum Rooter & Plumbing Inc. for professional drain cleaning services in San Jose, CA. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or emergency service.
