Affordable Drain Cleaning Service in San Antonio

What do you do when you get the gut sinking feeling of your sink or shower or toilet that full of brown, greasy or smelly liquid? We’ve been there. We know the frustration it can cause when your drain betrays you and brings back to the surface, all of the things you were trying to wash away.

And in an environment like San Antonio, drain clogging is a common problem that (due to our unique culture and ecology) often leads to bigger and more expensive problems when left alone.

Elmer’s Home Services is here to help you navigate this ugly stinky problem. Our core value is to repair your problem, rejuvenate your home and preserve your existing equipment. So before you call us, have you tried these natural and non-toxic remedies to clear that clog?

  • You can fill a sink full of very hot water, boiling water if can be safe, and use the heat and the weight of the water to move the clog, add ½ cup of Dawn dishwashing soap if you suspect grease might have gone down your drain.
  • You can use vinegar and baking soda to try and naturally move a clog out of your drain. Start with a sink of hot water, wash it down, dump ½ cup baking soda down the drain and wait 5 minutes. Then pour a mixture of 1 cup very hot water and 1 cup vinegar and cover with drain plug (to prevent backflow) and let it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse down with another sink/pot of hot water.
  • Careful use of a plunger creates water pressure that forces a clog to move through your plumbing and out of your way. Fill a clogged sink with 3-4 inches of water above the drain. Stuff a cloth into the drain overflow. Roll the plunger over the drain to get water into the plunger then plunge straight up and down for 20 seconds. Pull straight up until it pops free to create extra pressure. Repeat as needed
