Bathroom drains may get clogged with hair and soap residue, making it difficult to flush freely. The installation of a sink filter is recommended as a means of avoiding this issue. However, if you already have a blocked shower drain, follow these steps to fix the issue:
1. Use a Drain Unblocker Liquid.
If you want to quickly fix a blocked drain, just buy a professional drain unblocker liquid. These products include enzymes and chemicals that dissolve the clog in your drain, allowing water to flow freely once more. Take care while working with such potent chemicals. You may eliminate any remaining germs on the bathroom floor by wiping them down with an efficient floor-cleaning product after the drain has cleared debris. Use a disinfectant when you’re done cleaning. Use a disinfecting floor cleanser to remove dirt and bacteria from the floor. Always test a small area first to make sure it works with your surface, and always follow the directions on the package.
2. Use Vinegar and Baking Soda.
Make use of a cup full of baking soda to break up the blockage in the drain of a dry sink. Have some powder seep in. Just add two cups of boiling water and wait five minutes. Now add another cup of baking soda, and after five minutes, pour in a cup of vinegar. Now, flush the drain with two cups of boiling water. Assuming the clog is cleared, water should now be able to flow freely down the drain.
3. Use a Wet and Dry Vaccum.
To remove the clog, turn your vacuum’s liquid setting to its maximum position. To unclog the hose, ensure that you create a seal around it. For this purpose, a soda bottle top would do well. Turning the electricity on and off rapidly may help break up the clog. The instructions for your wet/dry vacuum will tell you how to use it properly. Sometimes the blockage is totally sucked into the vacuum, while other times, it must be removed by hand.
It’s understandable to think of cleaning the bathroom as a tedious and messy chore. A dirty bathroom is an inconvenience and a source of unpleasant odors. However, if you stick to a regular cleaning routine, you will not have to worry about either problem. Still, if the problem keeps coming back, you shouldn’t wait another day to call a professional.
