5 Mistakes to Avoid When Drain Cleaning

Drains are designed to handle fluids, not hair, stringy vegetable peelings or oversize wads of tissue paper. If your first reaction when the tub or sink drains slowly is to reach for a chemical drain opener, watch out. Another common response to a clogged or slow drain is to grab the nearest broom handle, kitchen knife or coat hanger and stuff it down the drain to try and fish out the clog. While this is occasionally effective if the drain is full of hair right near the surface, chances are, you won’t be able to reach the blockage.

Key Takeaways:

  • Spare yourself annoyance by using a hair catcher in the shower or tub when it’s time to shampoo and dumping vegetable peelings into the trash.
  • Chemical drain cleaners don’t work on solid clogs, such as hair, food or paper.
  • It is important to have your pipes cleaned and inspected regularly– at least once a year.

“Unless you are a plumber or have experience plumbing, it is highly advised that you do not disassemble the piping to find the obstruction yourself.”
