Clogged drains creep up on you like unwanted body hair. You have to keep on it regularly. In the case of bathroom drains, hair and soap scum buildup quickly. These particular clogs are especially easy to remove. With a screwdriver in hand, reach into the drain and start to pull our anything that is in the way. The hair should be pretty simple to pull out. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll have the bulk of the clog taken care of. In the case of kitchen sinks, most clogs are caused by particles of food, grease, and other junk slipping by the strainer and getting caught in sticky backups. In order to take care of these types of clogs, all you have to do is use Roto-Rooter pipe cleaner. The acid will infiltrate the problem and eat away anything lingering. Use this in our bathroom drain as well and you will notice increased drainage capacity. If you are short on cleaner, a few cups of boiling water once a week with a bit of baking soda and vinegar also works great.

Leaky faucets are common. Luckily, they can be fixed in a jiffy with just a little understanding of what is going on. Inside the faucet head, you will find a small washer sealant that is set against a small seat. If it gets warped or damaged from years of use, simply replacing that small part will get rid of most leaks and drips on the first try.
