Why Blocked Drain Are A Big Hassle To Everyone
3 min read

It's important to know how they operate and the possible risks before you throw one down the sink drain. Liquid drain cleaners are mostly used to clear clogged drains that are obstructed by hair, food particles, or other debris. These chemicals' corrosive properties dissolve the obstruction and allow wastewater to flow through. When utilizing them, it's a good idea to wear protective gloves, respirators, and safety goggles.

Liquid drain cleaning should never be put down a completely clogged drain. If there is no drainage at all from the waste water, the liquid chemical will stay on top of the obstruction. It is certain that someone will have to plunge or snake the drain, and the cleaning solution could be hazardous to their eyes and skin. One method for unclogging or partially unclogging a drain is to pour boiling water down it. This is done on the idea that the extremely hot water will dissolve the clog and let it drain.

Boil water in a pot until it is halfway full and pour it carefully down the drain into the sink, maybe two or three glasses at a time. Give the drain a minute to settle before adding more hot water. This process may need to be repeated multiple times before the obstruction clears.

Remember that there is no assurance that the drains will stop entirely with this method. Because of the existing water in the sink, the boiling water will quickly cool down, and it may not get hot enough to clear the clog. However, this might be effective for slow drains. Occasionally, blocked drain in a kitchen sink might be caused by grease buildup.

Dish soap, which is designed to cut through grease, may be quite useful in unclogging drains

Dish soap should be poured down the drain and left for a few tablespoons. If dish soap finds its way into the obstruction, it will begin to dissolve the grease and the pipe's seal. After a few minutes, treat the obstruction with boiling water, a few glasses at a time. By doing this, the drain may become clearer or at least start to flow again.

Instead of dish soap, a similar solution with vinegar, baking soda, and lemon might be able to unclog a bathroom sink. Simply empty one cup of baking soda, half a cup of white vinegar, and one cup of lemon juice down the blocked drain. Pour in five or six cups boiling water, then let this mixture sit for several hours before checking.
