Blocked outside drain Woodford doesn’t always require expensive repairs by the professionals. You also don’t need to use chemicals that can harm environment because there are other ways to keep the drains clean and fully functional.
The best tools to clean the drains, plumbing and home in general is to use home ingredients that everyone has in the pantry: salt, vinegar and baking soda. Blocked outside drain Woodford will be a matter of past if you keep on reading to discover just how you can make the best advantage of these ingredients to maintain and clean plumbing in your home.

Blocked drains can happen for number of reasons, such as food remains, grease and fats, hair, dirt, soap remains, items that block the drains on their own, etc.

There are several ways you can apply to unblock the drains and plumbing before you actually have to contact professionals to come and solve the problem you couldn’t manage to. In order to do it yourself, you first need to know whether there is complete or partial block in the drain. If the block is complete, water will not go down the drain at all, and if the block is partial water will still manage to go down the drain.

In a case of complete block, use rubber for unblocking. Fill the sink halfway to top with water, so that rubber can create the pressure and hold over the drain-this is really important for the action. Pull rubber up and push it down in fast motion, so that pressure can go through water to the block. Hopefully, this pressure will in time manage to break the block and the water will start flowing.

If the block is partial, the best way is to use baking soda and vinegar to try to dissolve it. Pour baking soda first and then follow with the vinegar. Chemical reaction between these two will “eat out” the block and dissolve it. Clean off everything with a big bowl of hot water.
