It is best to rely on a professional blocked drain plumber to inspect, diagnose, and repair any blocked or clogged drain issues safely and efficiently. If you want to keep your drains healthy and functioning as they should then read on. We are sharing the top tips for unclogging a blocked drain that you can try at home without causing any further damage to your pipes or drain.

The Good Old Plunger: There are some effective household methods to clear clogged drains with ease. To start with, try to clean a small clog by filling the sink or shower with water and using a plunger to open the drain to remove the clog. Work it up and down creating suction then pull to remove and repeat the process several times until your drains are working smoothly, as they should.

Baking Soda + Vinegar: This simple and environmentally safe solution can help get rid of trapped materials within the piping which means no more bad odours and nasty rotten egg smells coming from your bathroom drains. Simply pour 2-3 tablespoon bicarb down the plug then pour about 2-3 cups of vinegar which will make the bicarb froth and bubble. Let the chemical reaction take place for 10-15 minutes before pouring down 4-5 cups of hot boiling water to dislodge the clog and wash away nasty smells with it. If needed, repeat the process for clean drains.

Steer Clear Of Chemicals: Cleaning chemicals are easily accessible, but you should ask yourself if these are safe to use. Chemicals can be a health hazard, for anyone using it and also impact the environment, especially for anyone unqualified to use them. Qualified plumbers know that different drains need different solutions and work with caution. Instead of pouring harsh chemicals down your drains to dissolve a blockage, get a trained plumber to solve plumbing and drainage issues with their experience and the right tools.
