Whether the bathroom, the kitchen or the toilets, cleaning your pipes will avoid corks, bad odors, stagnant waters and heavy and paying interventions of a professional. Here are some simple actions, to be carried out regularly to avoid water evacuation problems.
Industrial maintenance products
This is certainly the simplest method but not the most economical, nor the most environmentally friendly. There is a whole battery of chemicals (maintenance after draining, special piping kitchen, stop odor …) with promises more or less doubtful and labels scary that are incomprehensible. Moreover, not all of them are adapted to skeptical pits.
You can also find a biological range without acid and soda for a slightly higher price.
Which solution ? Make your own products, like a recipe, with natural and natural ingredients like black soap, bicarbonate, vinegar, soda crystals that cost only a few euros and are versatile.
Old Plumbing Tip
Fortunately, natural products have the wind in their sails. Thanks to the magic and allied substances of your everyday life, baking soda and white vinegar, you will transform the harmful chemical substances of the standard pipeline discharges into biodegradable enzymes that are safe for the environment and for your health.
Recipe # 1
Mix a measure of baking soda, a measure of coarse salt and 2 measures of white vinegar (which will produce a foam and this is normal)
Pour it into your siphon
Leave on for a quarter of an hour
Pour 1 liter of boiling water
Caution : This mixture should only be used if you have not yet poured in an industrial vacuum cleaner , as this could damage your pipes.
Recipe # 2
Mix 1/3 of white vinegar, 1/3 of soda and 1/3 of salt
As before, leave to act and pour boiling water
The advantage of “homemade recipes” is that you can use the ingredients for all sorts of other operations: detach sinks, clean a burned saucepan, shine silver jewelry …
High pressure cleaner
If your pipes are not blocked yet, do not wait until they are blocked! In the sink the residue of the meals and in the sink the remnants of toothpaste, hair and soap can accumulate and reduce the evacuation of water.
To prevent this kind of inconvenience, the use of a high-pressure cleaner will avoid the use of chemicals harmful to the environment and your health. Equipped with a ferret (long metal rod end with small brushes) and a nozzle, your action will be all the more effective.
Good plan : if you do not have a high pressure cleaner and you do not want to invest in this type of appliance, it is possible to rent it by the day for about 50 dollars.
If you have tried all these things and still can’t get the results you want then you can always call a professional like Augusta Plumbers if you are in that area. If you aren’t then just go to a directory for your particular city.
