Using a Plunger & Clogged Pipe Drain Cleaner

Before calling us for professional clogged drain cleaning, you can try to clear the clogged drain yourself. In many cases, using a plunger or clogged pipe drain cleaner from the store can solve your problem. If you have a clogged shower drain or bathtub drain, you will need to call us so we can use a plumbing snake to pull hair, soap, and other residue out of the drain. Here are some tips for using clogged pipe drain cleaner correctly:

  • Purchase a drain cleaner specifically for your problem
  • Don’t use drain cleaner on a sink with a garbage disposal, or in a toilet, tub, or shower
  • Don’t use a drain cleaner on plumbing fixtures with standing water
  • Follow all instructions carefully, including wearing gloves and goggles if needed
  • Don’t squeeze the bottle while pouring
  • Let the drain cleaner sit for 30 minutes and then flush the drain with hot water for about 10 minutes

Using a plunger correctly is very effective on drains with standing water. Do not plunge a drain with standing water that you also used drain cleaner on, as that can cause drain cleaner to splash back up into your face and eyes. Here are some tips for plunging a kitchen sink or bathroom sink:

  • Use a cup plunger
  • If there is no standing water, put about an inch of water in the sink so it covers the drain
  • Center the plunger over the drain and plunge up and down a few times to create a seal
  • Remove the plunger to see if the water goes down
  • If it doesn’t, recenter the plunger over the drain and plunge forcefully for another 1-2 minutes

If neither of these techniques works for you, it’s likely you need professional clogged drain cleaning.

When You Need Professional Clogged Drain Cleaning

If you notice any of these warning signs of a clogged drain, call our 24/7 live answering service. We'll schedule an appointment for your professional clogged drain cleaning service if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Drains are slow
  • Plumbing fixtures are backed up
  • You notice sewer smells or rotten food odors coming from the drains
  • Your drains smell musty or moldy
  • You keep finding insects, roaches, or rodents in your sinks or bathtub
  • Your water bills have increased without explanation
  • There is standing water around drains or on the floor near plumbing fixtures
  • You hear gurgling noises or see bubbles in drains or the toilet
  • Your toilet keeps clogging or overflowing
  • You are unable to clear clogged drains yourself with a plunger or clogged pipe drain cleaner

Don’t Let a Clogged Drain Sit

If you let a clogged drain sit without clearing the clog or scheduling cleaning services, you risk further plumbing problems. The longer water sits in your sink, especially if you tried using a clogged pipe drain cleaner, the more likely it is that you’ll start to see rust and corrosion around the plumbing fixtures. If drain cleaner isn’t flushed down the sink drain completely, it can cause serious damage to your pipes, including corrosion, breakage, and burst pipes. Leaving debris and gunk in your pipes can also lead to corrosion and damage. It’s best to call us as soon as you notice that you have a clogged drain, so we can use our professional drain cleaning methods to get your plumbing working again.
