  • Below you'll find a list of steps to get rid of
    odors, remove clogs, and how to use an auger.

Get Rid of the Drain Odors
  • 1. Start by treating your drain with white
    vinegar, baking soda, and boiling water. This
    should help kill the bacteria known to cause foul
    odors. It also removes grease and any food
    leftover in your drain. This is a good prevention
    method too. Do this once a month to maintain
    clean drains.
  • First, pour ½ of a cup of baking soda down your
    drain, followed by ½ a cup of white vinegar.
    Cover or plug the drain immediately and let the
    mixture sit for about 15 minutes. Next, boil some
    water in a kettle or saucepan and pour the
    boiling water down the drain. Finally, you can
    use a solution of baking soda and vinegar to
    clean stains and mineral deposits off the area
    outside your drain.

  • 2. Treat drains with a biological cleaner. You
    can buy these at any local home improvement
    store. Follow the instructions on the bottle.
    Regular preventative treatments can keep your
    drains from smelling, eliminate potentially
    harmful bacteria and mold, and prevent future
    clogs. Biological cleaners, like Zep or
    Citra-Drain, are safe and environmentally
    friendly, but please don't leave these chemicals
    lying around. Also, these products are great for
    a septic system, which is common in older homes.

  • 3. Cleanse stinky disposals with ice, salt, and
    lemon peels. If garbage disposal runs well but
    smells terrible, it could mean the food residue
    and bacteria have started building up on the
    grinders within the disposal.
  • Fill the disposal with a few cups of ice cubes, a
    handful of course salt, and a few lemon peels.
    Let it the disposal grind the mixture to scrub
    out buildup. This will not hurt the steel

Remove Clogs from Drains
  • 1. Start with a plunger. There are two types of
    plungers. One for toilets and one for sinks
    tubs or showers. Find the correct plunger for
    your drain. Fill the sink or tub with enough
    water to cover the drain and bottom. Create a
    seal by pressing the plunger over the drain.
    Start pumping.

  • 2. Use a barbed plastic drain cleaning tool.
    Barbed drain cleaners, like the Zip-It Bath and
    Sink Hair Snare, can resolve clogs near the drain
    opening. It is simple to use. Slide the tool into
    the drain, then pull it out. Clean the tool, and
    repeat the process. Hair and other materials will
    be pulled out of the drain but for a deeper
    clean, contact All Utah Plumbing, Heating Air.

  • 3. Another wait to remove clogs is to use a gas
    or water-powered cleaner. Somewhat of an
    industrial tool, but residential versions are at
    your local hardware store. Compressed air or gas
    will blast the clog out of the drain. Gas-powered
    drain cleaners must fit over the drain tightly to
    work properly. If you don't create a good seal,
    the blast could be directed back at you instead
    of into the drain. For additional help, contact a

  • 4. Call a plumber. If nothing works, call a
    professional and schedule a service. Clogged
    drains are a serious problem and can cause issues
    throughout the entire plumbing system.

Cleaning Deep Clogs with an Auger
  • Auger A plumber's snake or drain auger is a tool
    that "snakes" down into pipes to remove clogs.
    Plumber snakes are more powerful DIY
    drain-clearers than plungers because they are
    attached to a drill but are difficult to use.
    Call a professional if you're unfamiliar with

  • 1. Purchase or rent an inexpensive cable auger or
    plumber's snake. Augers can clean deep clogs
    unreachable by common DIY methods. While the
    cables coiled on a spool come in many lengths, a
    25-foot cable should be plenty for most household

  • 2. We recommend using rubber gloves when
    operating an auger. Also, wear protective goggles
    or glasses, especially if biological drain
    cleaning was recently used in the drain.
  • 3. Some sinks have a built-in filter you'll need
    to maneuver around to reach the clog. The
    J-shaped trap is under the sink. Some are
    removable, and some aren't. If it's removable,
    you'll need a wrench or channel lock pliers. Keep
    a bucket close by to catch the water draining
    from the pipe after removing the trap.

  • 4. Push the auger cable or snake into the pipe
    slowly. After it's been inserted a few inches,
    turn the drill on and hold it firmly while
    pushing the cable into the pipe. The auger will
    dive deeper into the pipe system until you reach
    the clog. Wiggle the auger wire and turn the
    crank to get through sharp bends in your pipe

  • 5. Keep cranking the auger until you meet
    resistance. If the auger wire encounters a clog
    that is too big or strong to break up, it will
    stop turning. From this point, you can lodge the
    wire or snake into the clog and give it a wiggle
    to help loosen the clogged drain.

  • 6. Turn the crank in the other direction to
    remove the auger from the pipe. If you
    successfully lodged the auger in the blockage,
    the clog should come out with the wire. Clean the
    debris off the end of the auger and dispose of

  • 7. Test your drain and repeat the process if
    necessary. Run a little water in your sink or tub
    to check if it drains properly. If not, try
    running the auger through your pipes a second
    time, and repeat as necessary until your drain is
