Pointers to Do to Get Your Clogged Up Kitchen Sink Running Again
It is not fun to have a clogged kitchen sink especially you have plenty of dishes to wash yet plus kids that need to take care of and feed. It is very frustrating for moms, especially those single moms, who have to deal the issue themselves, without the right tools and no knowledge how to be a handy person in this particular situation. You will for sure be very annoyed when the stinking water in the sink won’t drain even leaving it for some time. Friends and families may offer suggestions but sometimes not effective even after your tried. So let us offer you some of the things to do to get your sink back in running again fast.
The first thing we recommend is that you call a plumber. In order to make things easy for you and less stressful, do not solve the problem yourself but instead call a plumber in your area and let the person do the job. There are several listings in your area and this is an easy way to find good plumbers. Note that the cost of getting a plumber is not that expensive and so you are not to be bothered with the cost.
The second pointer that you can try first even before calling your plumber is to try a master plunger and see if this can solve the problem. This is a very cheap tool that you can buy in most stores and so it is good to have this handy around the house. You can use the plunger by covering the drain hole with it completely, then work it up and down until the suction movement will break the clogs in your pipe.
Next tip is to remove the pipe and clean it. You can unfasten the pipe located under the sink, have ready a pail to catch the water that will come out, before your remove the pipe. You can also use a wire hanger to work through with the pipeline, just make sure that no obstructions are present. In case still you cannot fix the problem, it is most likely that the clog up is happening in the wall or below your house, of which in this case it is advisable to use a drain snake or an auger. You can either buy this tool in any hardware store, or if not, if you have a plumber come to the house, have the person bring this tool to do the job.
Actually, the best way to avoid this problem is to have a reliable garbage disposal under your sink in the first place. This way, your large food items will be grounded down and clogging will be avoided as it goes down the pipe.
