For particularly difficult clogs, there is one thing that you should try before calling a plumber. That is to try using a hand auger. Hand augers, also known more commonly as snakes, are smaller versions of the tools used by a professional plumber to get rid of nasty clogs. These tools are really effective on clogs that result from grease and hair buildup. However, before you begin using a hand auger you need to make sure that you know what you are doing. If you do it the wrong way, you could potentially damage one of the pipes. Simply follow these steps, and you should have no problem.
