How to Unclog a Sink Drain – Basic Plumbing Tips.

Sinks are easily to clog if proper maintenance is not given periodically. When your sink does get clogged you know you have a real mess in your bathroom or kitchen and you might feel stressed and unsure of how to fix it. At Drainblaster Plumbing in Birmingham Alabama, we understand how frustrating this could be, and that’s why we have created a simple guide on how to unclog your sink drain.

The easiest, safest method for unclogging a sink drain is to use a plunger. For dual-basin sinks, plug up the clogged drain, and add enough water to the clogged basin to cover the top of the plunger. Then work the plunger up and down over the drain to force the water through.

Now that the drain is unclogged you will have to prevent it from happening again. To help prevent future clogs, pour 1/2 cup baking soda into each drain, followed by 1/2 cup of vinegar. The reaction between the acidic vinegar and the alkaline baking soda will loosen any debris in the drain, and the baking soda will also help keep the drain smelling fresh.
