What Leads to Sink Clogged Situations?

Clogs usually take time to develop. So, you might not realize there’s a problem until the symptoms make the issue apparent. Many things, like food waste and hair, get into your plumbing system over the days, weeks, months, and years. These things can accumulate over time and eventually impede proper water flow.

Do Not: Attempt DIY Repairs

Trying to fix clogged sink situations or clean clogged sink pipes on your own will save you money upfront. However, a DIY project could cost you more money over the long term. Are you familiar with plumbing systems? If not, you might do more harm than good. It can cost an arm and a leg if a professional plumber has to undo your mistakes. A licensed plumber will know how to unclog kitchen sinks in Ottawa without any guesswork. Allow a professional to diagnose the problem and fix it correctly the first time around.

Do Not: Pour Non-Organic Liquids Down The Drain

You’re asking for problems if you pour non-organic liquids down your drain. It’s essential that you avoid pouring motor oil, chemicals, paint thinner, or other non-organic materials down the drain. Otherwise, you could encounter problems that require you to clean out the sink drain. There’s also the risk of jeopardizing the local water supply and ruining your pipes if you pour corrosive liquids down the drain. A licensed plumber can perform a sink cleanout if your bathroom or kitchen sink has a stubborn clog.

Do Not: Overload The Garbage Disposal

Don’t make the mistake of assuming you can use your garbage disposal as your primary garage can. Many things are best thrown out in the garbage can rather than the garbage disposal equipment. For instance, fibrous items like celery and cornhusks shouldn’t be placed in a garage disposal machine. You also need to avoid pouring grease or fats down the drain. Otherwise, you’ll need to unclog sink drains. Use sufficient soap and water when operating your garage disposal equipment.

Top Strategies to Unclog Sink in the Kitchen or Bathroom

When your sink won’t drain water properly, try some of these remedies to see if you can fix the problem.

  • PLUNGER: While most people will immediately reach for the plunger, resist the urge. Plunging might actually make the clogging worse. The inadequate pressure when using a plunger can compact whatever is causing the clog in the first place.
  • BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR AND OTHER DRAIN CLEANERS: One common strategy is to use a solution made by combining soda and vinegar. The problem with going this route is it can damage your drain. Why? Baking soda is abrasive and will eat away at your drain. Drain cleaners can also damage your drains. At Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing, we don’t recommend using a baking soda and vinegar mixture for your drains.
  • CONTACT A PLUMBER: Your best bet is to call a professional plumber rather than try to do it yourself. The risk of making mistakes is not worth it.

Before we attempt to fix the problem, we’ll perform an inspection to determine the root of the problem. We’ll then suggest snaking the sink with an auger or plumbing snake, or clearing the blockage courtesy of hydro-jetting.
