Before Reaching for the Drano

When confronted with a clogged drain, there are alternatives to caustic chemicals. Before doing anything else, check the drain for easily-removed hair or other blockage. Have a plunger handy—this should always be Plan A.

Failing that, a mechanical drain snake will often get the job done. If you’d prefer to avoid physical labor, try pouring baking soda mixed with vinegar down the drain, followed by boiling water. Of course, Silverado Rooter & Plumbing is always on call to help with any and all clogged drain problems.
