The most common signs that you have a problem with your bathroom sink drain are smells and slow drainage. Usually, the blockage is caused by strands of hair, soap scum buildup, or larger bits of debris from using the bathroom sink improperly.
Before you call in a professional, you can try some DIY methods to clean your blocked bathroom sink drain. Make sure to use gentle methods so that you don’t cause further damage to the drain.
Start by pouring boiling water down the drain. Then, pour half a cup of baking soda straight down into the drain. Add half a cup of vinegar, which will cause a bubbling chemical reaction with the baking soda. This reaction should shake up some of the debris in the drain to get things moving along. Cover the drain for about ten minutes or longer depending on how bad the clog is. After, pour more boiling water down to flush it all out. If that method doesn’t work, it’s probably time to call in the professionals.
Rooters, augers, or plumber snakes are powerful tools we use to clear debris caught in your pipes. We will inspect your sink and then select the right size tool to use for your drain. We’ll send the coil down into the pipes where it will grasp onto debris and deposits. Then, the motor will pull the coil back out and the debris with it. It’s pretty rare that bathroom sinks need rooter service, but if you have a buildup deeper in your pipes, your plumber may recommend it.
Like the rooter, hydro jetting is a professionals-only tactic for cleaning out a clogged sink drain. This is one of the best ways to clear out a drain, and when done correctly, it’s quite gentle on your pipes. Hydro-jetting is one of the newest methods available and recent technological developments have made it affordable and accessible. It may even be worth getting hydro jetting done regularly to stop pesky buildups before they can even begin. Basically, your plumber sends a highly pressurized hose down your drain. Then, high-velocity water is released where it can spray down the center line and sides of your pipes. Before long, the gunk has nowhere to go but onward through the pipes. This is a great way to get rid of buildup with the use of chemicals or rooting.
Are you facing a plumbing emergency? Bathroom sink emergencies can include burst pipes, an overflowing basin, or a faucet that won’t stop running. If you are in need of a plumber, you can call our emergency plumbing service to handle it right away.
Although cleaning out a blocked bathroom sink isn’t a very hard task, it’s one you can avoid. You can keep a grate over the top of your sink drain to catch hair before it enters the pipes if you frequently get ready in front of the bathroom mirror. You can also avoid brushing your hair at the bathroom sink and choose to do it at a vanity instead. Brushing is when you get rid of the most hair, and if you do it by the sink, that’s where it will end up.
You can also prevent blockages by changing some of your sink habits. Most of what goes down your bathroom sink should be water. Hand soap is alright of course too, but anything pasty, gelatinous, or creamy should be avoided.
Don’t wash face masks down your bathroom sink drain. Avoid rinsing anything greasy or oily like lotions down your bathroom sink drain. Don’t treat your bathroom sink like a second kitchen sink or a utility sink. Art projects, food, and gardening materials don’t belong in the bathroom sink.
To get rid of nasty bathroom sink odors, you can use the baking soda and vinegar method mentioned above and see if that helps. Usually, if there’s a smell, there’s something blocking the pipe too. Even if you haven’t had a drainage problem yet, you will soon. That’s why it’s never a bad idea to contact a professional plumber for your sink blockage issues. Are you having a sink problem?
