Did you know that many drain cleaners can contain harsh chemicals? Why expose your family to that kind of irritant when it may not be necessary? Some chemical cleaners might even harm your pipes, while also posing a downstream threat to the environment.”
Instead, try using a “green” alternative like baking soda to clean your drains! Take a half a cup of baking soda and half a cup of white vinegar and pour down the drain. Wait about 15 minutes and run plenty of hot water down the drain and the clog should be helped along on its way!
Of course, the best way to stop a clog is to prevent it from happening. We recommend using DrainRight® Drain Maintainer, exclusively offered by ARS/Rescue Rooter. It uses a special formula that not only safely keeps your pipes clean, but prevents build-up from forming. Use once a month for best results!
