The Right Procedure Of Clearing A Blocked Sink In The House

July 18th, 2012 by

Sinks are one of the most important parts of the kitchen. As a matter of fact, they are simply a must have and it becomes hard to do without sinks. However, they are prone to blockages because of all the wastes you wash through them. This is why you need to find the right means of clearing a blocked sink before it makes life in your kitchen or bathroom more difficult. First, it is important to remove obstacles from the plughole.

Food and hair debris are the most notorious sources of blockages in sinks. If you make use of a chemical cleaner or any form of caustic soda, you will be able to remove the debris from the sink. However, you need to be cautious as you use caustic soda. It should be suitable for the type of sink and plug hole you are using.

There are stubborn blockages that prove difficult to clear. This is when you need a sink plunger to remove the blockage. It is advisable to cover the overflow before you begin plunging. As usual, a damp cloth is the most appropriate to cover the overflow. The position of the plunger cup should be over the plug hole. Moreover, the plunging direction should be up and down if you want to achieve the best results.
