When water is backing up into sinks, tubs, or showers and won’t drain, there is a clog somewhere in the drain system. In some cases, the solution is simple, but many drain problems are complicated and difficult for non-professionals to repair without guidance. A minor problem may be hair clogging the trap that’s directly under a bathroom sink. Using a small plunger designed for sink use may remove the clog and allow water to drain. There are also numerous over-the-counter drain cleaning chemicals available at local stores. As a rule, avoid commonly available chemicals, as they are corrosive and frequently do more harm than good. If you’re unsure how to deal with a bathroom sink clog, give New Westminster plumbing and draining specialists a call today for advice. Another common issue that homeowners face is a clogged drain in the kitchen. These clogs are often more complicated to handle than a little hair in the bathroom sink. Far too often, a buildup of food waste and grease causes kitchen sink clogs. If the clog is minor, a homeowner may try using the sink plunger, but that may only move the clog a little farther into the drainpipes. Dishwashers and garbage disposals also use the kitchen sink drain, which adds more issues. If your home is equipped with a garbage disposal or dishwasher, it’s probably best to contact one of the New West drain cleaning technicians for help as quickly as possible when a problem develops. Every technician is trained to deal with clogs, and the plumber will arrive at your home with all the tools needed to deal with serious kitchen sink clogs. The drains for washing machines can also clog, and handling those clogs will require moving the appliance as well as dealing with the clog itself. Unless you have experience handling large appliance issues, it’s generally better to leave this type of clog to one of our professionals.
