A slow draining sink, shower or bathtub indicates a partially clogged drain. Waiting until your drain stops completely before taking corrective action will prove more expensive and complex than tackling slow drainage in time.

If you ignore a slow drain - most probably you will find yourself calling plumbers to unclog your completely blocked drain.

Avail of Plumber Washington DC homemade remedy for a moderately blocked drain:

1. Pour 1/2 a cup of baking soda down the problematic drain followed by 1/2 a cup of vinegar.

2. Wait 3 hours before flushing your drain with water.

If grease accumulation is the cause of your slow drain try pouring 1/2 cup of salt with 1/2 a cup of baking soda, followed by a teakettle of boiling water.

Weekly preventive maintenance will keep your home drains emergency free, clogless and odorless. Mix in a container a cup of baking soda with a cup of table salt, and 1/4 cup of tartar.

Even just flushing your drains with boiling water on a weekly basis will go a long way at preventing slow or clogged drains.
