Drain cleaning is an activity that most people tend to ignore up until their drains are already clogged and a plumber is needed to fix the clog. Drain cleaning is something that each and every person is suppose to actively engage in as this is what helps keep your sinks clean and in good working conditions. This article will seek to advice on how to go about properly cleaning your drains.

When someone wants to clean their drains, first and foremost you must have a drain cleaner. A drain cleaner is a consumer product or device that unblocks sewer pipes or helps to prevent the occurrence of clogged drains; the term, drain cleaner, may however, also refer to the individual who performs the activity.

When drains get clogged, we have been unwaveringly convinced that nothing short of the most powerful chemical arsenal will work. As a result, most of us resort to commercial drain cleaners that are some of the most dangerous chemicals found in the home. Lye or acid, these products can harm health, the wastewater stream, and PVC pipes. However, if you want to insist on using chemical methods of drain cleaning, it is advisable to seek the advice of a qualified plumber.

A gentle yet effective approach to coaxing free a clog from a drain is to use simple household ingredients instead of burning a hole through the clog with industrial lye, acid or other equally toxic chemicals. There are even bacteria-based enzyme cleaners available in health food stores that eat the clog free from the pipe without harming everything else in which it comes into contact. And it is always worth it to try unclogging a drain first with an old-fashioned plunger; they very often do the trick in a manner that is safe. If all else fails, you might try an electric plumber’s snake, but it is recommended that to prevent injury, only professional plumbers should use this equipment.

One drain cleaning rule that is often unspoken but is a must to be taken into consideration is that the help and advice of a qualified plumber is required when doing the act of drain cleaning. This is so due to the unforeseeable risks that is involved with the drain cleaning task.

Generally, drain cleaning is meant to be done in a safe way that will ensure that the people who use the tub ir sink or toilet after the cleaning do not get harmed due to the drain cleaning process; as such it is advised to always use non toxic materials when cleaning drains or get the help of a plumber.
