ORLANDO, FL, March 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Orlando plumbing professionals, Choice Plumbing, discuss the best ways to remove clogs from your sink and bathtub drains. Nothing is more frustrating than noticing a clog when you are about to take a shower or wash your hands. Instead of going down like it should, the water starts pooling up, possibly along with loose hair, dirt and other nasty debris.
Tips for a Healthy Drain
Clogs are one of the most common plumbing problems and can be fixed relatively easily and on the cheap. Only at a last resort should you need to call an Orlando plumber for help. More often than not, yours is likely the cause of gradual buildup, in which case a thorough rinse with a cleansing solution will do the trick.
You may not need to rely on chemicals to get the job done, so the first thing to do is grab the plunger and suction the drain for a minute. If the water does not drain, proceed to fish the pipe with a plumber's snake. This is a flexible plastic line that features ridged teeth. Twist the snake into the drain as far as it will go, then pull it out the same way. Chances are plenty of gunk will come with it.
After the clog has been removed, allow scalding hot water to run through the pipe for a couple of minutes to get rid of any excess.
According to Nick Shif, Owner Operator of Choice Plumbing, "If the clog is severe enough, an auger may be required. Our electric power models can travel up to one hundred feet and will clear any blockage."
