When we have kids and long hair, the thought of having clogged pipes is an easy one to deal with. Kids love to drop things down holes such as toilets, and if you have ever had a clogged sink, know how easily hair can get stuck in there. When it comes to dealing with this however, many people don’t want to even think about it. This is why they will hire a plumber or better yet someone looking for a few handyman jobs in boulder, co.
How to unclog a pipe?
If you are looking for how to unclog a pipe, then let me tell you the easiest way. You will need a plunger and it is this simple:
1. Get the plunger handy and remove all of the water on your sink or tub drain. Make sure everything is drained out so that when you use this plunger it will not get messy.
2. Unscrew the overflow plate, and once you have done that use your plunger (use a good quality one). Simply plunge up and down until you feel that it is clear of all water or hair.
3. Finally screw back in the parts you unscrewed and turn on your sink to test it.
If this doesn’t work, what you may have to do is put on a pair of rubber gloves and with some pipe cleaners or another small snake device carefully run it down your drain and try to grab onto the hair or gunk that has settled in your sink. When using a snake you want to make sure you don’t use too much force, you don’t want to break the pipe itself.
Just make sure you run it around the drain at least a couple times, and once you have done that, give your plunger another shot to dislodge anything else that might be in there.
It is recommended to do this every month or two just to keep things working properly in your home. It is very important for keeping your pipes clean.
