Everyone has to deal with a clog at some point in their life. As these plumbing problems are so common, countless myths surround them. Luckily, we have debunked some of the biggest drain cleaning myths.

Plunger works just fine for most clogs.

Generally, while a plunger can clear a clogged drain, it is only a temporary solution for minor clogs. A plunger will only push debris further down, making the clog worse. For bigger clogs, a plunger will no longer solve the problem. Do not use a plunger as it can lead to excessive damage to the drain line and force water back into other drains. 

DIY cleaning solutions

Do-it-yourself cleaning solutions made of pantry staples such as baking soda and vinegar are often labeled as the best “natural” cleaner for clogged drains. This is a huge myth, as while these solutions may temporarily clean your drain, they are not strong enough to destroy a clog.

Slow-flow drains are no big deal.

When your water drains slow like a snail, it may not seem like an immediate issue, but you must know this issue will not fix itself. It’s important to address the problem immediately to avoid a deeper issue in your drain or sewer line.

It is okay to pour oil and grease down the drain.

Arguably the most important tip – do not ever dispose of grease and oil down your drain! Oil and grease do not rinse away with water. Over time these substances solidify in the pipe below the drain, causing a nasty clog.
