When the drains are clogged it’s a huge hassle to effectively clear liquid from your sink. It’s the same case even when the drains are only partially clogged: as the water drains really slowly.
The mess is visible and it’s not really inviting to use the kitchen sink or shower drain when there’s still stagnant water around. That’s why many Sydney residents see clogged drains as an urgent concern.
The best way to drain the mess and remove the clog without doing any of the heavy lifting is to hire a professional for this type of job (and not ask a random neighbour to do it).
A plunger is a very handy tool for most situations, and many people rely on the plunger whenever there’s a blockage.
However, if clogging happens frequently, or if the water still drains slowly after using the plunger, your friendly plunger could only be a temporary solution. In this type of situation, it’s important to use a more straightforward way: by using a drain snake.
You can easily buy a plumber’s snake from the hardware store, or you can improvise by unwinding a coat hanger. Drain snaking is a more straightforward way to remove the clog. The “snake” can go into the tight spaces and corners where it can directly reach the clog.
It’s crucial to be extra careful when using a drain snake, as doing it yourself might actually lead to worse problems. For instance, reckless use of drain snake might cause damage to your pipes and drain system. It could also lead to mess everywhere. No-one wants to leave their kitchen, bathroom or laundry in a worse condition than when they began.
Failing to observe safety precautions could lead to more problems and expenses. If you’re careful, though, you can completely remove the clog without worrying about a thing.
It’s safer and more convenient to let professionals do the job when it comes to clearing drains. Many Sydney residents agree.
