Blocked Sink: 3 Inexpensive Ways to Fix It

The clogging of the kitchen sink happens from time to time. Has this happened to you? The reason why is due to frequent use of the kitchen sink. It’s a huge hassle, but the good news is, you can very easily unclog your sink using affordable, convenient techniques.

How can you accomplish that? Check out the answers below:

1. Use the plunger

In most cases, using the plunger is already enough to unblock a kitchen sink. This is probably the most-handy and quickest solution.

You put the plunger onto the sink hole and act out a pumping motion. The goal here is to create pressure and dislodge the clog to flow freely down the drain. It’s very easy to do.

However, this could only be a temporary solution. There might be a larger clog accumulating lower down in the drain and in this case you might need to consider techniques other than the plunger.

2. Use mild and readily available chemicals

You need to make a mix of baking soda, vinegar and warm water for this. Pouring the solution down the sink may partially dissolve the clog, making it easier for it to move down the sink.

This is also one of the easiest and quickest ways to fix a blocked sink. However, it’s a less-popular way than using the plunger because of the preparation involved.

3. Hire pros

If your DIY solutions aren’t working, it’s time to call the professionals. Tell them you need them to use drain snaking to clean your kitchen sink pipes. It’s an easy and effective, yet messy, process that most plumbing professionals should be able to do.

The plumber will properly disassemble the pipes and utilise the drain snake. They will also clean up the mess if there’s any to make sure your kitchen stays sparkling clean.
