Drain Cleaning Brisbane

Although it can seem like an unpleasant job, cleaning your drains regularly is a very important part of maintaining a healthy plumbing system in your home or your office. If you don’t have them cleaned professionally on a regular basis, you’ll find they clog quickly and may end up costing you hundreds of dollars in expensive repairs. This is why you need a drain cleaning Brisbane expert.

Drains clog because of debris from the shower, hair, soap or other miscellaneous items – especially if you have kids! If these items are allowed to build up over time, you could find serious damage occurs within your plumbing system.

How to Clean a Smelly Drain

How to Clean a Smelly Drain

As a general rule, when cleaning a smelly drain you should avoid using very harsh, strong chemical compounds. This can cause further damage to your plumbing system and also the area to where your water runs off.

Here are our drain cleaning Brisbane tips.

At least once a week:

1 Pour boiling water down the smelly drain (and other drains throughout the house). This is a good maintenance method to prevent the problem developing into something serious, and it should deal with any small drain build-up.

2 If your kitchen hosts a lot of cooking and dishwashing, your kitchen sink may get on the nose from time to time. You can mix boiling water with some vinegar to break up any grease clogging to the sides of your drain.

3 If the smell doesn’t go away after this, you can put a gentle drain cleaner or cup of baking soda down the drain. This should tackle the most common causes of a smelly drain.

4 You should also remember to remove any food from cooking utensils before washing them and prevent copious amounts of soap falling into any bathroom drains as good, preventative measures each week.


At least once a month:

1 Once a month, you need to give some TLC to your bathroom drains. These are the most common sources of blocks because of hair, soap and other objects which have fallen in.

2 You should remove all hair in the drain and rinse with boiling water afterwards.


At least once a year:

1 Give us a call at RPG Plumbing and we can come do some quick maintenance for your drains before any issues grow into expensive problems.
