Clogged drains are bound to happen sooner or later. Even though you may need to call the plumbers to repair your clogged sink, there are some techniques that you may be able to fix yourself without causing any additional problems. Kitchen sinks tend to get clogged with food that is put down the drain on the side that has no garbage disposal. Bathroom sinks get clogged with hair most often. You must never use any of the drain cleaners that are sold in stores because they are corrosive to your pipes and may be harmful to your skin and overall health.
You will want to repair the clogged drain now, so you will know whether or not to call the plumber. Using a plunger may be your first attempt at unclogging the drain. Make sure to remove the stopper or strainer first, and then place the plunger over the open hole. You can create more of a vacuum by covering the rim of the plunger with some water. Pump the handle up and down no more than ten times. When you release the plunger the blockage may release. If not, it is time to call the plumbers at Schuelke Plumbing to unclog your clogged drain.
