Why Can a Drain in My Home Be Clogged?

The debris consisting of grease and hair can accumulate in the drainpipe. They cannot find their way down the pipe, so they are quickly collected and block the drain. A blocked drain may become serious problem overtime because the build-up does not allow water to flow normally down the pipe. The huge amount of such debris that cannot pass through the drain becomes larger and larger, gets stuck somewhere within the pipe, and blocks the water flow completely. The result of it may get rather dramatic when the bathtub or sink starts backing up. That happens in most cases if the proper attention is not paid on time to the shower water flow.

Warning Signs Your Drains in Toronto’s Home Are Clogged or Demaged:

  • Your drain makes funny sounds (gurgling, etc.)
  • Slow draining water
  • Signs of dampness
  • Bad odor from drains
  • Sewage coming out of the drains
  • Toilet Doesn’t Flush

How Can a Plumber Unblock My Clogged Drain Toronto?

You can use a plunger, of course, for some minor clogs, though it won’t work for more persistent obstructions. In this case, you need to address the problem to our expert licensed plumbers. They have a special tool for unblocking severe clogs. It is called an auger or snake (the name which is mostly used by many homeowners).

This effective equipment uses another principle which is different from that of a plunger. It just works in the opposite way. By using a plunger, you can just push the debris back up the pipe. The auger pushes the matter down piercing it when the snake is driven into the obstruction, breaking it apart and forcing it further down to reach another part of the clogged pipe. Gaining access to the entire clog, the technician gradually clears up the pipe until the obstruction is removed completely. In some more complicated cases, the licensed plumber can utilize an electric snake which is more powerful. It can penetrate through the most difficult and tough obstructions in the sinks, drainage systems, or pipes that may need more force. Such snakes are very effective because they are long and the plumber can access the clogging lying deep inside the pipe.

Baking soda and vinegar for drain cleaning

Blocked drains usually account for your strongest desire to rush to the nearest store and grab the strongest chemical drain cleaner that you can find. However, such chemicals may turn out less effective than you believe and, moreover, they can do much harm to your drains. The environment and your family’s health may also suffer from them.

Why not think about a much softer but still very effective method of drain cleaning that is available in every household? We mean using common vinegar and bicarb soda.

Clean clogged drain with baking soda and vinegar

Baking Soda Combined with Vinegar Can Make Wonders!

Clogged drain in Toronto can occur in any household, even if you are very careful about not throwing items into the pipes. One small piece of food or paper may become the last drop to complete the entire wall of gunk and debris that will block the water from flowing.

Some may believe that the idea of using soda and vinegar for clearing up the blocked pipes is strange. However, it works so effectively that it may even beat a commercial chemical cleaner. So, follow this simple procedure and you will see how it works soon not to be too skeptical.

  1. Flow down some hot water to start with.
  2. Measure a half cup of soda and throw it into the pipe.
  3. Make a mixture of 1 cup of water and 1 cult of vinegar. The water should be very hot. Pour this mixture down after the soda previously thrown.
  4. Wait until the reaction happens. To make it more efficient, close the pipe with the drain plug. 10-15 minutes is enough, supposedly.
  5. Flush the mixture down the pipe with one more bowl or bucket of boiling water.
  6. To finish this simple repair, you can pour the lemon water into the pipe to do away with any unpleasant smells that may stay.

Making a Cleaner at Home Without Soda

You may not always have baking soda at your disposal but face the clogged drain. What to do then? Just heat the water in a big bowl. When it boils, pour it into the drain immediately. Then, pour some more hot water and some more. It is needed to keep the environment in the pipe hot. Soon, you will see that your pipe starts to drain. The job is done!

Main Homemade Cleaners for Drain Unblocking 

  • Solution of salt in hot water
  • Mixture of borax, salt, vinegar, and hot water
  • Dish soap solved in hot water

You can also think about utilizing a long and strong wire. Apply it to the blocked area by putting it into the sink as deep as possible. When you feel some resistance, take the wire away and push it again into the pipe. By pushing and pulling the wire, you will be able to unclog the pipe.

Use the Mixture of Salt and Vinegar

Another method to unblock the drain pipe is mixing iodized salt and vinegar with some addition of soda. It is perfect if you can leave this mixture in the pipe until morning. Utilize this hack if vinegar and baking soda do not help much.

Take one cup of salt and 1 cup of vinegar and mix them in a small container. Stir the mixture until you see that there are no grains of salt in it. You can also add half a cup of lemon juice to enhance the cleaning potential. If the clog is located in a deeper part of the drain or it is too stubborn, you can add more vinegar. This concentration will help the mixture move easily down and discompose the clog more effectively.

Dismount the drain stopper first before putting the mixture into the drain. It will allow you to pour the substance immediately into the pipe. Try to pour it coating every part of the pipe to make the smallest parts of the clog absorb salt and vinegar.

Leave everything untouched for approximately 15 minutes or, if needed, for up to half an hour. Then boil some water  and rinse the drain with it. The matter is that vinegar is an aggressive material that, if left unrinsed, can corrode the pipe. Even if you leave the prepared mixture in the pipe for more than 30 minutes, the outcomes can be drastic.

Never splash the hot water on the basin because it may damage you. try to pour it immediately into the pipe.
