The Procedure Involved In Unblocking A Sink

December 11th, 2013 by

Blocked sinks are experienced almost all over the world. As much as you try to be cautious in the kitchen duties, you are bound to experience blocked sinks from time to time. Emergency plumbers are the best experts to deal with this kind of problem. Simplicity and contentment is what you will get from them.

You can also opt to do it yourself. You need to first do away with any obstacles that are present in the plug hole. There may be blockages in form of food and hair. They are dangerous because of their ability to cause bad blockage to the sink. With the use of a chemical cleaner or caustic soda, it is possible to remove the blockages from the sink. Before you make use of any chemical, it is important to ensure it is suitable for the particular sink you are unblocking.

The other alternative is to use a plunger if the blockage is stubborn. It is important to cover the overflow using a damp cloth before you begin the process of unplugging. This is an important step that is going to force the air as you clear the blockage. The right procedure is to plunge up and down if you want good results. If the plunging does not work, you may be forced to remove the trap under the sink.
