How to unclog a drain

Clogs can be a pain. The best way to avoid them is to prevent them all together, but here’s what to do if you run into a clogged drain:

  • Pour boiling water down the drain: Boiling water helps to break down any grease or food particles in your drain that may be causing the clog. 
  • Use a drain snake: Using a drain snake allows you to manually remove the clog. To use a drain snake, insert it into the drain and twist it around to collect the dirt and debris.
  • Use a plunger: The first thing you should try when you have a clogged drain is a plunger. Place the plunger on the drain and pump until the clog is gone.
