Pointers to Do to Get Your Clogged Up Kitchen Sink Running Again

When you have several dishes to wash and kids to watch out for, having a clogged kitchen sink adds to the stress. Facing this situation is not easy for moms out there who do not have the right tools to take care of the problem and who do not have the knowledge on how to solve the problem. A lot of stinking water on your stink is very annoying especially when it does not drain even after some time of being left for awhile. Friends and families may offer suggestions but sometimes not effective even after your tried. So let us offer you some of the things to do to get your sink back in running again fast.

Our first recommendation is as easy as calling a plumber. In other words, do not stress yourself out, and make it easy on your part by just calling a plumber in your area. There are several listings in your area and this is an easy way to find good plumbers. A simple job of fixing a clogged kitchen sink will not cost you a lot of money so this should not be a problem to you.

Even before calling a plumber, you might want to try the very simple tool called a plunger and see if it can solve the clogged up sink, and so this is our second advice. It is advisable to have this tool handy and ready in your house, since you can buy this cheap in most of the hardware stores. You can use the plunger by covering the drain hole with it completely, then work it up and down until the suction movement will break the clogs in your pipe.

Another pointer is just to remove the pipe and clean it. First is put a bucket below the sink to catch the water, unfasten the pipe and remove it. Another tool is a wire hanger that can be used to work through the piping, and just check out first to make sure that no obstructions are present. In case still you cannot fix the problem, it is most likely that the clog up is happening in the wall or below your house, of which in this case it is advisable to use a drain snake or an auger. You can either buy this tool in any hardware store, or if not, if you have a plumber come to the house, have the person bring this tool to do the job.

Actually, the best way to avoid this problem is to have a reliable garbage disposal under your sink in the first place. The large particles of food will be grounded first before it goes down the pipe, and this will minimize the probability of a clogged sink in your kitchen.
