When Should I Contact a Service Professional?
Almost all homeowners eventually face clogged drains in their bathrooms, kitchens, and other spaces. Fortunately, they can try a couple of simple DIY solutions to clear their drains before getting in touch with Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Fort McMurray to resolve them. If your drain is slow, you can heat a kettle or pot of water while letting the water drain entirely or most of the way and then pour the boiling water down the slow drain. This easy technique effectively clears clogs formed by hardened grease and oil. If that method doesn’t work, you can remove obstructive material using a plunger and drain snake. After using a plunger on your sink to pull the clog near your drain opening, you can pull out the materials with the drain snake. If neither of these methods works, your drain clog might be too deep in your plumbing system to clear using DIY solutions. Your best choice to resolve a slow drain or continuous backup is to call a service professional.
