Drainage Cumbria is a company that specializes in drain cleaning in Cumbria and we have put together a comprehensive guide on how to deep clean your sink drain.
The sink in your kitchen is likely one of the busiest areas in your home. This means that it is prone to getting dirty quickly, and you may find that over time, your sink drain becomes clogged with food particles, grease, and other debris that gets washed down the sink. This can lead to unpleasant odors in your kitchen, slow draining water, and even a complete blockage.
Deep cleaning your sink drain is important to keep your kitchen clean and hygienic. A clean sink drain ensures that water drains away efficiently and prevents the buildup of bacteria and germs. Additionally, it saves you money in the long run since you won't have to pay for costly repairs resulting from clogged pipes.
Deep cleaning your sink drain is an easy and cost-effective task that you can carry out in your Cumbrian home. The process involves using simple household items to unclog any blockage in your sink. The following are steps to follow for a thorough cleaning of your sink drain.
Before you start the deep cleaning process, it is essential to remove any visible debris that may be blocking the sink drain. Start by removing any food particles, hair or grease. Wear gloves to protect your hands.
Fill a kettle with water and boil it. Once it has boiled, pour the hot water down the sink drain. This will help to loosen any grease or fat that may be blocking the drain.
Mix 1/2 cup of baking soda with 1/2 cup of white vinegar in a container. The mixture will fizz upon combining, and this is normal. Pour the mixture down the sink drain immediately after the fizzing has stopped. Allow the mixture to sit in the drain for about 25 minutes.
Boil another kettle of water and pour it down the sink drain after the 25 minutes have passed. The hot water will help to clear the baking soda and vinegar mixture from the drain.
Now that the baking soda and vinegar mixture is gone, it's time to use salt and ice cubes. Pour 1/2 cup of salt down the sink followed by a few ice cubes. Turn on the cold water and let it run for a few seconds. The salt will help to remove any remaining debris in the drain while the ice cubes will help to grind up any solid debris.
Finally, cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice down the sink drain. The lemon juice will get rid of any unpleasant odors that may be coming from the sink.
Rinse the sink drain with hot water. This will flush away any remaining debris and ensure that the drain is clean.
Cleaning your sink drain in your Cumbrian home is quick, easy and can save you a lot of money in repair costs. By following the seven steps outlined above, you should be able to deep clean your sink drain effectively from start to finish in no more than 25 minutes.
