When you have a sink that's blocked with sick, it's important to know how to deal with it quickly and efficiently. Drainage Cumbria is a blocked sinks company in Cumbria that can help you with any drainage problems, including sink blockages.
Clogged sinks are a common problem that many people face, especially if they live in areas with hard water or if they have a lot of hair, oil, or food particles that go down the drain. When a sink is blocked with sick, it adds another level of difficulty since it can be particularly gross and unpleasant to deal with. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to unblock your sink and get it back to normal.
The first step in unblocking a sink is to turn off the water supply. This is important because it will prevent any more water from going down the sink and making the blockage worse. Once the water is turned off, you can start to work on unblocking the sink.
The next step is to remove any standing water from the sink. You can do this by using a cup or bowl to scoop out the water and pour it into a bucket or down a drain that's working properly. This will make it easier to see what's causing the blockage and to access the plughole.
The sink itself will likely be quite dirty and covered in sick and other debris. You can clean it out using a sponge, warm water, and some dish soap. Be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent any sickness or contaminants from getting on your skin.
Once the sink is clean, you can use a plunger to try to remove the blockage. Put the plunger over the plughole and push down with firm, even pressure. This will force air and water through the pipe and often dislodge the blockage. If this doesn't work, you may need to remove the plughole and clean it out manually.
To remove the plughole, you'll need to use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds it in place. Once the nut is loose, you can lift the plughole out of the sink and clean it out using a wire hanger or a pipe cleaner. Be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent any sickness or contaminants from getting on your skin.
The blockage itself may be a combination of food particles, grease or oil, and other debris. You can remove this using a combination of a wire hanger, a pipe cleaner, and warm water. Be sure to wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent any sickness or contaminants from getting on your skin.
If the plunger and manual cleaning don't work, you can try pouring boiling water down the sink. This can often help to break down grease and other oils that are causing the blockage. Be careful when handling boiling water, and don't pour it down the sink if you have plastic pipes, as this could cause them to warp or melt.
Another option is to use a commercial drain cleaner. These products are designed to dissolve blockages and clear out drains. However, they can be harsh and may damage your pipes if they're not used properly. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully, and wear gloves and protective clothing to prevent any sickness or contaminants from getting on your skin.
If none of these methods work, you may need to call in a professional drainage company like Drainage Cumbria. We can help you unblock your sink and get it working properly again. Our experienced team of experts has the tools and expertise needed to deal with any drainage problem, including sink blockages.
To prevent sink blockages in the future, it's important to be careful about what you pour down your sink. Avoid pouring grease or oil down the sink, as these can solidify and cause blockages. Use a strainer or mesh screen over the plughole to catch any food particles or debris before they go down the drain.
