Attempting to perform common do-it-yourself drain cleaning techniques can cause more harm than good and end up costing you more in the long run. Below is some of the common attempts that should be avoided when you attempt to clean drains in your home or office:

1. Chemical Drain Domestics- These chemicals simply don’t work. They are a safety hazard and will often cause disarray then solve your blocked drains or flush out your pipes. Chemical drain cleaners aren’t suitable for clearing debris or large blockades.

2. Clothing Hangers- You’re not trying to unlock a car here! Simply do not use a clothing hanger in attempt to unblock a drain. This can cause more issues if you get the hanger stuck in the pipe and cause more damage than what you started with.

3. The Outside Hose- People tend to believe that added water pressure will unclog drains and flush out pipes. This normally will cause a huge drama for you and put your pipes at a high risk of damage. The outside hose should be used to water your garden and plants not fix your drain cleaning issues.

4. Drain Augers- This is a great tool for those who know how to use it and know what they are doing. If you are unsure of how to use a drain auger you can cause more damage to your pipes.
