How to Safely Unclog Grease, Oil and Fat From Pipes

Not sure how to unclog grease, oil and fat from pipes? As emergency plumbers in Charlotte, we see a lot of clogged pipes. Much as people try to keep their pipes clean, it seems they get clogged with all kinds of debris, from hair to floss, grease to oil. It’s just the challenge of keeping your pipes clean and clear.

Please Don’t Use Caustic Chemicals to Unclog Your Pipes

There are several ways you can keep your pipes free from build up. Unfortunately, most people here in Charlotte grew up using a caustic chemical, like Drano. While caustic chemical drain cleaners can be somewhat effective, they can also be dangerous. When you use a caustic drain cleaner, you run the risk of:

  • Chemical burns
  • Splashing of the chemical into your face or eyes while trying to unclog the drain
  • Damaging the environment with the flushing of these toxic chemicals
  • Ruining our groundwater and freshwater drinking sources through the disposal of these toxic chemicals.

Fortunately, there are many safe, environmentally-friendly ways to keep your pipes clear of grease, oil and fat build up.

Flush Your Pipes With Hot Water

If you run hot water down your drains often, you can clear out some of the build up. Hot water plus rock salt or hot water plus vinegar are two good drain cleaners that are both safe and effective. This is something you can do regularly as part of your home maintenance.

Use a Green Drain Cleaner Such as BioOne

Sometimes you need something stronger than hot water and vinegar, so you’ll want to use a product like BioOne. BioOne uses naturally occurring cultures that are perfectly safe for your plumbing and for your septic tank. BioOne has EPA’s Design for the Environment DfE approval, which means it is better for the environment and overall human health than other drain cleaners.

To learn more about BioOne, go to their company website and read up on the science behind the drain cleaning technology. You’ll see they have both residential and commercial grade drain cleaning products for purchase.
