Clogged drains can be a pain: they prevent you from enjoying the wonders of your plumbing system, and if left untreated, they can cause water damage and mold development in your home. If you have a clogged drain at home, you shouldn't worry, as here are five easy fixes for that common problem.

How to Unclog a Drain

Pour Boiling Water

First of all, if you know the obstruction is minimal, boil some water and pour it over the drain. The heat will help dissolve and flush the barrier away.

Plunge the Blockage Away

For this next method, get the plunger, place the plastic cup over the drain, and start plunging. Before you do, however, cover the drain opening with duct tape to keep the clog from coming up the pipe.

Mix Baking Soda and Vinegar

Another easy fix needs you to mix equal parts of baking soda and vinegar. When you see that the mixture starts fizzing, pour it over the drain. Wash everything off with hot water to get rid of small clogs.

Use a Plumber's Snake

For this tip, you'll need to get to hands on a plumber's snake or auger. Then, just push the wire into down the pipe to effectively remove any blockage that was preventing proper water flow.

Resort to Chemical Gels

A final, very effective, but potentially dangerous method, requires you to purchase chemical gel. Again, it is very effective, but you'll need to use it strictly as instructed, as it can cause some damage if not handled properly.
