If you’re unsure or facing significant resistance, contact Radiant Plumbing and Air for safe and effective resolution.

Yes, a combination of vinegar and baking soda can serve as a natural and effective remedy for clearing certain types of clogged drains. Baking soda, with its alkaline properties, helps break down debris, while the fizzing reaction created when it combines with vinegar can assist in dislodging and dissolving organic matter in the drain. This method is particularly useful for minor clogs caused by substances like grease or soap scum. However, for more stubborn or severe clogs, especially in main drain lines, alternative methods like a plumbing snake or professional assistance may be necessary. It’s crucial to exercise caution and avoid using this mixture immediately after chemical drain cleaners to prevent potential reactions.
