A blocked sink can happen for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include:
Grease and fat buildup: Over time, grease and fat can build up in the pipes, causing a clog that blocks the sink.
Inappropriate waste disposal: If you dispose of items like food scraps, coffee grounds, and other debris down the sink, it can cause a blockage.
Soap and bathroom product buildup: Soap and other bathroom products can cause a buildup over time, leading to a clog.
Foreign objects: Sometimes foreign objects like hair, toothpaste caps, and other items can accidentally go down the drain, leading to a blockage.
If you have recently noticed that your sink has become blocked, you might be wondering how to clear it. There are several methods you can try, including:
You can use a plunger to unblock a sink by creating a vacuum that sucks out any debris causing the blockage. First, plug the overflow hole using a damp cloth, then fill the sink with some water. Place the plunger over the sinkhole, push down gently, then pump the plunger a few times.
A drain snake, also known as a plumber's snake, is a long, flexible cable that can be used to dislodge debris or other materials caught in the pipes. Insert the drain snake into the drain and turn the handle, allowing the cable to move deeper and deeper. When you feel resistance, move the snake gently back and forth until the obstruction clears.
You can also use chemical drain cleaners to unblock your sink. However, be aware that these products can be harsh and may damage your pipes if used too frequently. We also recommend that you always follow the directions on the label and wear protective gear when using chemical drain cleaners.
Of course, the best way to deal with blocked sinks is to prevent them from happening in the first place. Here are some tips you can follow:
