Drain cleaning is essential to help keep your plumbing from leaking or breaking and can help save money in the long run.

How to Unclog a Sink Drain

  • Add Boiling Water - A small amount of boiling water can help your pipes unclog blocked drains caused by hair, grease, soap residue, and other debris. When clearing a clogged sink, start with the easiest fix. You shouldn't use this method if your drain is connected to PVC pipes, as the boiling water could melt or damage the plastic.
  • Check the Garbage Disposal - Sinks with garbage disposals may be the source of drainage problems. Turning on the disposal usually clears up the clog. Overheated or dysfunctional disposals may not even turn on, but a reset switch can be found on the side or bottom of the unit that can be used to reboot them. Once the disposal has been reset, turn it on again to remove the clog. If the problem persists, contact a professional.
  • Use a Plunger - Once you have determined that the disposal is not the problem, you can pull out the plunger. If you have only a toilet plunger on hand, you can use that, but it is recommended to use a flat-bottomed one. Plunge into the sink with your plunger when it is about halfway full.
  • Baking Soda & Vinegar - An alternative to chemical drain cleaners, this method is designed to unclog drains naturally. Baking soda and vinegar are also common household products that you probably already have in your kitchen. Pour one cup baking soda and one cup white vinegar down the drain, then remove standing water and let the mixture do its thing. Keep it sealed for about ten minutes, then flush. Flush with hot water.
  • Plumber’s Snake - Blockages that put up a fight will require the strength of a plumber's snake to remove. A spiral snake is attached to the tool, which reaches down into the drain. The handle on the snake can be turned to dislodge debris and pull it out of the drain once it hits an obstruction. Electrical snakes offer even more power to clear out drain obstructions.

How to Prevent Drain Clogs in the Future

Many people make the mistake of using chemical cleaners or tools to try to clear out drain clogs on their own. Drain cleaners come in many different forms which are intended to help clear out clogs. However, they can actually do damage to your plumbing system. Instead of wasting your money and time on these products, it is important that you hire a professional plumber to provide you with drain cleaning services and learn how to prevent clogs in the future.

A few steps you can take to help avoid clogs include:

  • Use a sink strainer and don't dump large foods down the sink
  • Use a bathroom and tub sink stopper to avoid hair going down the drain
  • Don't flush baby wipes, paper towels, or feminine items down the toilet
