This week, we wanted to share our powers with you and provide a few tips on how to de-odorize your residential or commercial property’s drains.
One of the greatest ways to eliminate odors is by preventing debris from clinging to the sides of your pipes. At least once every two weeks you should pour a gallon of boiling water (a little at a time) down each of your drains. This helps flush away grease or other particulates that may have accumulated and could cause odors if left trapped in the pipes.
On the other hand, if you have a minor clog, they could cause a horrible odor. You can click here for the recipe and specific instructions, but we’ll provide an overview. Basically, pour a specific amount of baking soda down the drain. Then, combine lemon juice with vinegar and pour it down the drain. The lemon juice has a fresh smell and natural antibacterial properties. After a few minutes, slowly pour a gallon of boiling water down the drain to rinse it all away.
If you’ve tried both of these things and still have a foul smell coming from your pipes, you might have a more serious problem such as a severe clog, leaky pipe, or some other plumbing problem.
