Clogged Sink Repair Services

A clogged sink isn’t the type of problem you should ignore. If basic DIY methods like a drain snake don’t fix the issue, contact a professional fast.

A clog could indicate a more significant plumbing issue that needs to be addressed.

Our team at Perfect Home Services, serving homeowners throughout the Chicagoland area, will fix the clog before a minor issue turns into a major problem.

The Process Behind Unclogging a Sink

A plumbing snake can remove blockages if they aren’t located deep within the plumbing system. To unclog a sink with one, simply purchase a drain snake at a hardware store and follow the instructions. It’s a fairly simple process. You simply insert the snake into the drain as far as it will go.

Often, the snake is able to remove material causing the blockage. Don’t attempt to fix this problem on your own if the plumbing snake isn’t effective. If you don’t know how to unclog a sink, you may resort to chemical-based drain cleaning products that can actually damage your piping.

In the meantime, the following are steps you can take to prevent a clogged sink in the first place:

Keep Unsafe Items Out

Cooking oil, coffee grinds, eggshells; all of these (and more!) can result in a blockage that clogs your pipes. Make sure every member of the household knows not to dispose of them via the drain, and consider installing a filter over the drain to capture small food particles in the sink.

Use Baking Soda & Vinegar

Baking soda and vinegar can help prevent sink clogs by removing materials from the drain that might otherwise cause a blockage. Once a week, pour about a handful worth of baking soda down the drain, followed by hot water. You can also pour a cup of vinegar down the drain, letting it sit for 30 minutes before following it with hot water.

Taking either of these steps regularly can prevent clogs.

Schedule Inspections

Having your plumbing system inspected once a year by a professional makes it easier to identify signs of a problem before major issues like a clogged sink develop. You can also use this opportunity to ask the technician questions about maintenance.

At Perfect Home Services, we’re always happy to offer advice about keeping your plumbing in the best possible shape.

Why it’s Imperative to Fix a Clog

If a sink is clogged due to a blockage in your pipes, water pressure within the pipes could build up until they burst. This results in water damage and other potential issues, like mold growth.

Clogged sinks may also be the result of mineral and/or chemical deposits in the pipes. Left unaddressed, these deposits may corrode the piping, resulting in leaks. Fixing the clogged sink sooner rather than later saves you a lot of money in the long run.
