Here at Drain Doctor Oxford, we like to ensure that not only do we give the best service but also, we like to offer the best advice to help you with your drainage. Here are some quick tips in order to minimise the bad smells in your drains.
Baking Soda: Baking soda is ideal for effectively killing odours and it should tackle the source plughole of your smelly drain and follow it with boiling hot water. This will allow the baking soda to do its work.
Flush the drain: Often, stray hairs and other debris get stuck in soap scum that’s lining the pipe and create smells. Treat that quickly by pouring a couple of quarts of boiling water down the drain. Wait five minutes, then follow with cold water to congeal any remaining grease. Finally, repeat the boiling water flush to remove that last bit of congealed material.
Professional Help: Sometimes, a repulsive smell within your drain simply cannot be flushed out with boiling water, white vinegar or baking soda. An odour that is difficult to remove can often be an indication of deeper problems within your drains that may require professional help to eliminate.
Using any of the above methods every week or two will keep your drain from developing a nasty residue that can lead to small clogs. If you have any questions or concerns or indeed are encountering any issues, then why not contact us for some help and advice on 01865389804 or 08000154767 or visit our website www.draindoctoroxford.co.uk for further information on all the services we provide.
