Clogged Sink Repair
Sinks are, unarguably, the center fixture of bathrooms and kitchens and are vulnerable to getting clogged. A clogged sink gets in the way of household chores and creates unimaginable inconveniences when it is not operating correctly. It is, however, normal to have a clogged sink either in the bathroom or kitchen in any home once in a while. Meanwhile, if you are very careful with what enters your sink, you may not experience a clogged sink for a long time. Clogs are mainly caused by several items used in the home that unfortunately found their ways into the sink.
A clogged sink in most cases is preceded by slow draining of water or no draining at all. The main drain to your sink may be the problem or the sewer line in your home. Whatever is the cause of a clogged sink, having a professional plumber to fix it immediately is the way to go to prevent inconveniences and to expose your family to health risks, especially when you tried plunging or other DIY tricks to no avail.

Causes of a Clogged Sink
Grease or fat is the most common cause of a clogged sink, but luckily, it is very easy to prevent. When fat or grease is poured down the drain, it will stick to the internal wall of the pipe and accumulate day-in-day-out and attract other debris until the flow of water down the drain is blocked or prevented.
To prevent your sink from getting clogged by grease or fat, pay close attention to any substance you want to wash away. Do not pour grease or fat in your sink under any circumstances; it is a recipe for sink clogging. Dispose of fat or grease in the garbage bin.
Hair is one of the non-liquid objects that can cause a clogged sink. It is easy to overlook this issue because hair is very light and that it will be taken away by a rush of water. Meanwhile, when hair strands pass through the sink into the pipes, they can accumulate and attract other dirt to form a formidable clog that will cause your sink to back up and create a drainage problem.
To prevent hair from causing a clogged sink in your home, place sink guards in your sinks to prevent hair from entering the pipe.
Putting food waste in your sink without installing a garburator is another cause of a clogged sink. Certain types of food like spaghetti, coffee grains, bread crumbs, etc. should not be put in your sink. They may not clog your sink immediately but continually throwing food into the drain will allow the food waste to accumulate and eventually cause your sink to clog.
To prevent clogging your sink with food waste, install a garburator to process food waste without creating any problem for the sink or drain. On the other hand, dispose of waste foods in the garbage bin.
No matter how some materials appear, once they are not meant for your sink or drain, do not attempt to force them down the drain to prevent your sink from clogging. If the main pipe gets clogged, it will affect all the sinks that connect to it. As a result, it is essential to prevent clog-prone items from getting into the drain. Things to keep away from your sink and drain include acidic or corrosive substances, coffee grinds, motor oil, nail polish, polish remover, solvents, medications, condoms, feminine hygiene products, etc.
