Have you noticed persistent drain odors? This is a sure sign of a clogged drain line. Left unaddressed, these odors can escalate into a completely blocked drain and wastewater backups. Luckily, there are simple and effective ways to get rid of drain odors. In today’s blog post, Rooter Man Plumbing shares some of the ways to eliminate drain odors and keep your drain line in tip-top shape.

  • Pour Boiling Water Down The Drain

Sometimes, hot water is all you need to eliminate drain odors. Boil a pot of water and carefully pour it down the drain. This can help melt grease buildup and eliminate mild odors. However, this method may not be strong enough for severe clogs caused by large debris or deep-seated buildup. In such cases, a plunger, a plumbing snake, or clogged drain line repair by a professional plumber might be necessary.

  • Scrub with Lemon, Lime, or Orange

The fresh scent of lemon, lime, or orange can help neutralize mild drain odors. Cut a lemon, lime, or orange in half and scrub the inside of the drain. The citric acid helps freshen things up, and the rinds can help remove grease. Flush the drain with hot water. Unlike harsh chemical drain cleaners, lemons, lime, and oranges are a natural and non-toxic solution. This is ideal if you're concerned about using chemicals around your home or have children or pets.

  • Try a Combination of Baking Soda and Vinegar

Apart from helping to clear minor clogs, this classic combination is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer. Pour ½ cup baking soda down the drain, followed by ¼ cup white vinegar. The fizzing reaction breaks down grime and neutralizes odors. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then flush with hot water. Both baking soda and vinegar are common household items, making this a budget-friendly way to address drain issues. If this combination doesn’t work, get in touch with a trusted plumbing repair service for professional help.

  • Try a Combination of Salt and Baking Soda

Salt can help scrub away grime. Combine ½ cup baking soda with ½ cup salt and pour it down the drain. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then flush with hot water.

  • Install Drain Screens

Drain screens are a relatively inexpensive way to prevent costly plumbing problems down the road. They catch hair, food scraps, soap scum, and other debris before they can enter the drainpipes. This helps prevent clogs that can cause slow drainage, unpleasant odors, and even backups. Call an experienced plumbing repair service to help you install drain screens and say goodbye to drain clogs and unpleasant smells.

  • Invest in Regular Professional Drain Cleaning

Don’t wait for the stench to strike. Schedule professional drain cleaning services with an experienced plumbing service. Clogged drains can lead to burst pipes or other plumbing issues that necessitate expensive repairs. Regular drain cleaning prevents these problems and saves you money in the long run. Clogs and backups can put stress on your pipes, shortening their lifespan. Regular cleaning keeps your drains clear and your plumbing system functioning optimally for longer.
