Looking On The Bright Side of ServicesJune 25, 2018
It is not a fun situation when your kitchen sink is clogged up and you have lots of dishes to wash and children to take care of. Especially for those single moms out there, it is not easy to deal with this issue especially if you are not a handy person and you do not have the right tools to get the problem right. You will for sure be very annoyed when the stinking water in the sink won’t drain even leaving it for some time. Friends and families may offer suggestions but sometimes not effective even after your tried. So let us offer you some of the things to do to get your sink back in running again fast.
Our first recommendation is as easy as calling a plumber. In order to make things easy for you and less stressful, do not solve the problem yourself but instead call a plumber in your area and let the person do the job. There are several listings in your area and this is an easy way to find good plumbers. Note that the cost of getting a plumber is not that expensive and so you are not to be bothered with the cost.
The second pointer that you can try first even before calling your plumber is to try a master plunger and see if this can solve the problem. This is a very cheap tool that you can buy in most stores and so it is good to have this handy around the house. In using the plunger, try to get it cover the drain hole completely, then work it up and down in quick motion so that the clog will loosen up with its suction effect.
Next tip is to remove the pipe and clean it. First is put a bucket below the sink to catch the water, unfasten the pipe and remove it. A wire hanger can also be used to work through the piping and just see to it that no obstructions are present in the pipe. If with these simple means the problem is still not fixed, then cloggings could be happening in the wall or below your house, in which you have to use an auger or a drain snake. You can either buy this tool or have the plumber bring it and do the job for you.
To avoid future problems of this kind, it is advisable that you get a garbage disposal and put it under your sink. The large particles of food will be grounded first before it goes down the pipe, and this will minimize the probability of a clogged sink in your kitchen.
