Home Remedies


Typically, when pipes get clogged, homeowners run to the store and grab a name brand chemical drain opener, thinking it will solve all of their problems. What most homeowners don’t know, however, is that, even though that name brand substance may unclog your drains, it’s only a temporary fix. The chemicals in the solutions actually burn or dissolve a hole in the buildup, blocking your drains so that, over time, with regular use, you’ll end up doing further damage to your system. Instead, homeowners should use natural or homemade alternatives such as baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice or Bio Clean. Bio Clean is a natural bacterium that feeds on the buildup inside of your drains, biodegrading anything that clogs the pipes until they run clear and trouble free.

Pouring baking soda down the drains along with hot water will dissolve the sludge and gunk in your pipes, even if you don’t see it happening. You can also add a cup of vinegar. When the bubbles die down, just continue to add hot water and repeat the process if necessary. Another natural cleaning paste can be created by mixing lemon juice with the vinegar and baking soda.

The #1 thing to remember with plumbing is to be aware. Be aware of what goes in and comes out of the pipes. Be aware of what the pipes can and can’t handle.
